“To connect with a new generation of fans, you need to create an experience that keeps them engaged throughout the event process,” said Jeff Ianello, EVP of Client Partnerships at SeatGeek. “Our success is buoyed by the technology we create which makes a ticket mean so much more than just a ticket.
