Internet Association And Vivid Seats Team Up To Safeguard Consumer Freedoms To Purchase, Sell, Or Use Live Event Tickets How They Choose

Washington DC – Internet Association today welcomed Vivid Seats, the largest independent online ticket marketplace, as its newest member, adding to the organization’s growing list of e-commerce members.

“Vivid Seats is at the forefront of the peer-to-peer economy leveraging the internet to enhance consumer choice and change the way people shop for live event tickets,” said Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman. “Vivid Seats epitomizes what it means to empower people through a free and open internet, and we look forward to working with them to advance policies that meet those standards.”

“Almost two decades ago, Vivid Seats helped reinvent the live event ticket marketplace,” said Vivid Seats’ Christopher Libertelli, Senior Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs. “As our marketplace has grown, the company made a wise decision to become a resource to policymakers as they consider practices that may hinder our consumer’s ability to buy, resell, or use the event tickets they own. Together with Vivid Seats’ growing Washington, D.C. presence, we look forward to working with Internet Association to put consumers at the center of good public policy in Washington.”

An industry pioneer for more than 17 years, Vivid Seats has provided a vibrant online ticket marketplace giving fans access to the most sought-after live events. Vivid Seats hosts tens of thousands of live sports, concerts and theater events, even those sold out elsewhere and with options fitting virtually any budget.
