Local Arts Organizations Launch
Ticketing App for iPhone; Android App to Follow
TicketTrove, a new application for the iPhone developed by Arts Management Systems, Ltd., can be used to find theatre, arts and sports venues based on your location, and where ticketing is available, purchase directly from your phone.
“At the time patrons are thinking of an event, they can scroll through dates, view ticket availability, and either tap a button to place a call, or actually order right from the phone,” said Kirsten Park, Director of Marketing at Pioneer Theatre Company.
Website, contact and location information for most venues in Utah are listed in the application, and tickets can be purchased directly from the application for performances of the following organizations:
Desert Star Theatre
The Grand Theatre
Park City Performing Arts Foundation (Park City’s Eccles Center, Big Stars, Bright Nights at Deer Valley)
Pioneer Theatre Company
Red Butte Gardens
Salt Lake Acting Company
“It’s a valuable collaboration between our organizations,” said Sheri Jardine, Communications Manager at Kingsbury Hall, “and creates a convenient way for ticket-buyers to have information on events not just at Kingsbury Hall, but also around the state.“
TicketTrove can be downloaded at no cost from iTunes. Organizations or venues that are not listed in the application can contact Arts Management Systems directly to be included.
Arts Management Systems located in Calgary, Alberta, develops ticketing and receipting tools for box office, development and theatre administration. www.artsman.com
