COSTA MESA, CA and ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Tickets.com, provider of state-of-the-art technology solutions to over 1000 sports and entertainment clients around the world, and Arlington International Racecourse today announced a ticketing services partnership. The Arlington Heights racing and entertainment complex will introduce the ProVenue® platform to their fans in support of sales for the 2014 race season.
Arlington International Racecourse selected the Tickets.com platform after an extensive evaluation of ProVenue at two area Major League Baseball facilities: Chicago's Wrigley Field and Milwaukee's Miller Park. Tony Petrillo, Arlington International General Manager noted, "From the automated kiosks, to the digital ticket delivery methods, and to the online purchase experience, we see the ProVenue installation as a major technology upgrade for our facility and will provide a most user friendly on-line experince. ProVenue will let us broaden the types of bundling and promotions we offer and give us more actionable data to help us more effectively plan for the future."
Tickets.com's Dan Archabal, Vice President of Business Development, is bullish on the future of the racing and gaming industry. "We see traditional racing & gaming facilities like Arlington International and Fair Grounds Racecourse & Slots (Tickets.com's other Churchill Downs Incorporated managed facility) continuing to broaden the types of live entertainment they offer fans," said Archabal. "ProVenue gives our clients a flexible platform as their business expands beyond racing with immediate benefits occurring in a reduction to labor expense with more self-service options and a streamlined sales process all focusing on elevated customer service."
Live Racing at Arlington Park resumes Friday, May 2.
