ShowClix establishes multi-million dollar Fair Ticketing Fund to help venues and event promoters become independent of the company being created through the Ticketmaster/Live Nation merger. Through the fund, ShowClix will provide venues and promoters who want to operate independent of Ticketmaster/Live Nation with tens of thousands of dollars in funding; a new ticketing system, at no cost; and a significant reduction in service fees for their ticket buyers.

We want venues and promoters to know that they have a choice - that an alternative to Ticketmaster does exist

ShowClix (http://www.showclix.com), a Pittsburgh-based ticketing company and live events search engine, today introduced its newly established Fair Ticketing Fund, a multi-million dollar fund that will distribute money to venues and event promoters who want to operate independent of the company being created through the Ticketmaster/Live Nation merger.

Through the Fair Ticketing Fund, ShowClix will provide each participating venue or event promoter with tens of thousands of dollars in funding; a completely customizable, robust ticketing solution at no cost; and a significant reduction in service fees for their ticket buyers.

"We want venues and promoters to know that they have a choice - that an alternative to Ticketmaster does exist," said ShowClix President Joshua Dziabiak. "We hope that the benefits of participating in the Fair Ticketing Fund will give venues and promoters a reason to make a change in 2009. We're a viable alternative, and through the fund we hope to establish the company as such."

While the Fair Ticketing Fund was established specifically for venues and promoters who are in Ticketmaster and Ticketweb contracts due to expire in 2009, anyone who wishes to be independent of Ticketmaster and Live Nation may be eligible to receive funding through the program. Venues and promoters who are interested in participating in the Fair Ticketing Fund should visit http://www.showclix.com/FTF for more information.
