Moshtix and The Basement announce long term ticketing partnership

Moshtix and The Basement announce long term ticketing partnership
November 7, 2013

Leading independent ticketing provider Moshtix and The Basement, Sydney's iconic live music venue, have announced a long term renewal of their 10 year relationship which will see them working together for at least the next five years.

The Basement became Moshtix's first client 10 years ago and together they established a new ticketing model based around paperless ticket delivery and low consumer fees that set the standard for how the live music industry operates today.

In April 2013, The Basement, in its 40th year of operation, changed ownership prompting a complete review of ticketing capabilities and options in line with the innovative expectations of the new owners. The result of the review is the long term renewal with Moshtix.

Announcing the partnership, Basement Entertainment Manager Nathan Farrell stated "ticketing underpins our business so it was critical we had a partner that had the capability and credibility to support our objectives.

"We did some pretty extensive research of the options in the market, but based on the feedback from the previous venue owners and our own experience with the moshtix team over the last few months, it was clear moshtix were the only partner that could offer the combination of relevant technology, audience reach, and great day to day service.

"Their responsiveness is second to none in this market, and their self-service and marketing tools give us the ability to be much more nimble and flexible in the way we manage our business."

Moshtix owner and Managing Director Harley Evans added "it's been an absolute privilege for moshtix to have worked with The Basement from the day our business started back in 2003.

"We're thrilled to announce the renewal of this relationship with Nathan and his team in our 10th birthday year, and it's clear our objectives are highly aligned as far as customers, technology and service are concerned.

"I think the relationship will move to a new level over the next few years for the benefit of the people who attend events at this iconic venue."
