Kalamazoo, Mich. – Wings Event Center is now an exclusive ticketing partner with Etix, a web-based ticketing provider. The new partnership will help improve our guest experience purchasing tickets online and also provide a sustainable approach by using e-tickets on your cellphone.
“Wings Event Center continues to see facility improvements that help us deliver world class guest experiences - moving to Etix is another step in that process,” said Rob Underwood, General Manager of Wings Event Center. “We work hard to bring quality entertainment to the Kalamazoo area and we are excited to have Etix on board as part of that process.”
One of Etix notable features is its user-friendly interface and several methods to redeem tickets including print-at-home, mobile ticket or will call.
“Etix offers 24/7 customer access from any computer or mobile device,” said Toni Daniels, Business Operations Director of the Kalamazoo Wings. “Our Kalamazoo Wings hockey fans may choose from printing a ticket at home or display a ticket on their smartphone to present at the game upon entry - saving our fans time from standing in long lines at the Box Office.” Printed tickets are available through purchasing at the Box Office as well as available for pick up at Will Call by request when ordering online for a small fee, Daniels added.
Founded in 2000, Etix is the largest independent ticketing company in North America and provides flexible and secure online and box office ticketing solutions and robust e-commerce fulfillment to over 2,100 venues, theaters, arenas, festivals, fairs, performing arts centers and multi-use facilities.
“Etix’s mission is to provide superior ticketing, marketing and service solutions for our clients and their customers,” said Travis Janovich, CEO and founder of Etix. “We are committed to growing our ticketing platform with features and updates that will help Wings Event Center sell event tickets easily as well as make it easier for Wings customers to buy tickets.”
To purchase tickets for any upcoming shows or hockey games at Wings Event Center, visit wingseventcenter.com or the Box Office. Alternatively, fans can purchase tickets through Etix at etix.com or by calling 1-800-514-3849 (Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday Noon to 8 p.m. EST).
