In a world, where digital and e-tickets are fast becoming standard place, Ticketmaster decided to introduce a special kind of ticket just for the fans – The Collector Ticket. This premium, high quality, physical ticket acts as a collectable souvenir that fans can keep, as well as use to gain entry to the event. It is the only product of its type available in the marketplace making it unique for fans. The Judging Panel described it as “A great product which fulfils the demands of customers who want the convenience of digital ticketing but still want that unique souvenir ticket”.
A big congratulations to Sam Isles along with her Artist Services and TicketWeb teams, and everyone who has and continues to work on the Collector Ticket product.
