Culture and the Arts Minister John Day today announced Ticketek as the new ticketing service provider for venues managed by the Perth Theatre Trust (PTT).
Mr Day said Ticketek’s bid offered excellence in technology and marketing and a strong understanding of the Western Australian market.
“Ticketek’s offer met the tender brief as well as the requirements of the trust,” he said.
“As the venue managers, AEG Ogden (Perth) Pty Ltd will manage the new ticketing service agreement and the existing box offices at the PTT venues.
“We expect Ticketek to be fully operational in September 2012.”
The Minister said patrons would not be unduly affected over the next two months as ticketing moved to the new provider.
“Both BOCS and Ticketek will operate in parallel during the transition period and all BOCS tickets will be honoured by Ticketek,” he said.
The Perth Theatre Trust venues are:
• His Majesty’s Theatre
• Perth Concert Hall
• State Theatre Centre of Western Australia
• Subiaco Arts Centre
• Albany Entertainment Centre
