Expedia, the popular travel booking website, is expanding their offerings with the launch of Event Tickets, a secondary ticket service for sports, concerts and other live events. “We know travelers are looking for unique and authentic experiences while in-destination,” says Expedia Local Expert Vice President, Jen O’Twomney.
“They want to catch a baseball game at a stadium they’ve never been to, or see a show that isn’t playing in their hometown. There’s also a growing trend to build entire trips around events, to attend a music festival, follow a specific artist on tour or root for your team at an away game. Adding event tickets to our product offering makes all the sense in the world and gives us another way to help travelers get the most out of their vacation.”
Expedia reports that they already have an extensive array of tickets on offer, with more than 95,000 concerts, sports matches and other live events available to users in U.S. markets.
Expedia’s new service is being operated through a partnership with resale marketplace TicketNetwork.
