Ticketmaster France today announced its partnership with Carrefour Spectacles, part of the Carrefour Group, one of the most established ticketing retailers in the French market having ticketed all areas of live entertainment across the country for the last 25 years.
As the official ticketing partner, Ticketmaster will facilitate all of Carrefour Spectacles ticketing activities including online sales and those at all 600+ ticket offices located in Carrefour Group hypermarkets and supermarkets around France.
The partnership will enable Carrefour Spectacles to expand its current offering, giving customers access to Ticketmaster’s world class service and industry-leading products. Carrefour Spectacles’ customers will enjoy a seamless ticket-buying experience and access to an extended catalogue of events as well as new, immersive technologies. This includes features like interactive seating map technology that allows fans to see the view from any seat before they buy a ticket.
“As we get ready to reopen our industry, we are so pleased to embark on this new partnership,” said Jean-Baptiste Prévoteau, Director of Merchant Services of Carrefour. “Simply put, we think our customers will have a better experience buying tickets with Ticketmaster. Their ability to offer an enriched customer experience alongside unmatched ticketing technology led us to make this change, and we look forward to a very long and prosperous relationship.”
“We’re thrilled to team up with such a major player in the French entertainment industry. Together, we will be able to connect even more French fans to the events they love,” said François Thominet, MD Ticketmaster France. “As we continue to invest and innovate our technology, we look forward to providing Carrefour Spectacles’ customers with the best ticketing experience as they return to live.”
