Exciting news. Ticketmaster Presence was just awarded “Best in Sports Technology” at Sports Business Journal’s 11th Annual Sports Business Awards!

Ticketmaster Presence is the next generation venue access control and fan engagement platform that replaces paper tickets with digital passes. Presence streamlines live event venue operations, provides real-time insights and analytics to venues and teams, enhances security, protects against fraud, and allows for a personalized fan experience. Ticketmaster is also developing and exploring new features for Presence, including facial recognition technology through Blink Identity.

Presence is also a cornerstone of Ticketmaster’s official ticketing partnership with the National Football League. Since hitting the market just over a year ago, more than 100 venues have implemented Presence and more than 13 million fans have entered venues using the technology.

We’re honored to be named the “Best in Sports Technology” and know that Ticketmaster Presence and digital tickets will continue to change the way fans experience live events. And it’s all happening in the palm of your hand with your mobile device.

It’s the kind of technology that venues, teams, artists and fans have been waiting for.
