Ticketing firm Eventbrite has joined UK lobbying group the FanFair Alliance, to ‘support the fight against industrial-scale online ticket touting’.
This follows Eventbrite’s partnership with face-value-resale platform Twickets last year, as well as the company’s ongoing expansion of its music-ticketing activities.
“As leaders in ticketing, we stand with The FanFair Alliance. Like them, we believe that tickets should get into the hands of real fans at a fair cost, and that the revenues generated from ticket sales should flow back to the artistes and promoters who create the experience for their fans in the first place,” said Eventbrite’s general manager in the UK, Joel Crouch.
FanFair campaign manager Adam Webb said it was “heartening” to see primary ticket-sellers joining the group.
