Dallas, Texas (PRUnderground) February 25th, 2016
The Dallas Mavericks and Tixsee have announced a 3-year partnership to provide fans with an immersive ticket buying experience.
The Dallas Mavericks have partnered with Tixsee to debut an innovative and immersive ticket shopping experience. Tixsee has integrated into the Mavericks existing ticketing partner, Ticketmaster, to provide a new technology enabling fans to view available inventory and buy tickets directly from the Mavs’ website. The Dallas Mavericks expect the progression of this partnership to continue to create a better fan experience and reinforce the value of attending live games.
“We aren’t in the business of selling tickets – we are in the business of selling unique and shared experiences,” said Mark Cuban, Owner of The Dallas Mavericks. “Tixsee’s product elevates ticketing technology, and further reinforces our commitment to creating memorable and entertaining experiences for our fans.”
Tixsee is the first to integrate primary ticket inventory into a fully immersive virtual tour of an arena. The Mavericks are the first professional sports franchise to deploy Tixsee’s software on a 360º panoramic virtual tour powered by Google Street View. The tour is comprised of 12,444 high-resolution panoramic photos stitched together to create 1,037 360º images.
“When we launched Tixsee it was our goal to partner with the Mavs first because of their emphasis on both fan experiences, and technological innovation,” said Brett Dowling, Tixsee’s Co-founder and CEO. “The Mavs partnership has been vital to our growth. In addition, we are planning further developments including mobile apps to extend beyond ticketing.”
Fans can take the virtual tour and purchase tickets at www.mavs.com/tour.
