Goldstar Launches in Detroit
For more than five million people, Goldstar (www.goldstar.com) is the first place to go to find something fun to do. And now the people of Detroit can get in on the fun. The company that gets everyone going out more often has set an official launch date for the Motor City: TODAY, Wednesday, December 10, 2014.
"Detroit has such a vibrant and dynamic cultural scene," says Jim McCarthy, CEO, Goldstar. "Since our goal is to bridge audiences with great live entertainment events, heading to Detroit is a no brainer for us."
The free membership service dedicated solely to live entertainment tickets makes it easy to discover a wide variety of events - from theater to sports to concerts to comedy, and much more. While Goldstar typically sells tickets at a discount, they cracked the code on what really motivates people to go out more often - and it's not price. It's great selection, convenience, and ease-of-use.
Goldstar is an all-in-one live entertainment resource. At a glance, members can:
· Rediscover Detroit by purchasing tickets to local sporting and entertainment venues
· Discover events anytime, anywhere - in all major U.S. cities
· Purchase tickets easily, right from the mobile app or website
· View and manage ticket purchases
· Sort events by date, category and location
· "Star" events and venues to get emailed new offers
· Read event reviews and tips on what to wear, where to park, etc.
· Customize their night out with tools like "Sit with Friends"
Goldstar is partnering with several Detroit area venues, producers, promoters and performing arts centers to sell tickets to their events. Organizations already onboard include Olympia Entertainment, Performance Network Theatre, The Farmington Players, Murder Mystery Company, and Detroit Pistons Basketball, and more. Pending partnerships include Live Nation at The Fillmore, Wayne State University, The Ringwald Theatre, Motor City Theatre Organ Society, Mosaic Youth Theatre, Community Chorus of Detroit, Meadow Brook Theatre, with more to come. They join Goldstar's network of 5,000+ venue partners across the U.S. who've used Goldstar to connect to new audiences, sell out more shows and increase overall revenue. Goldstar's venue partners receive 95% of the revenue on each ticket sold. (Purchasers pay a small service fee to Goldstar when they buy.) These partners are also getting new audiences in seats that would otherwise be empty.
