Events.com and TicketGuardian Partner for Unique Insurance Offering to Protect Event Registrants
May 4th, 2017
SAN DIEGO, CA, May 4, 2017 – Events.com, the industry’s premier event management and registration platform, and TicketGuardian, a full transactional insurance technology platform, have developed a one of a kind partnership that will offer industry leading insurance and registration cancellation protection. Housed within Events.com’s mobile-first, social-integrated registration and ticketing service, this industry leading insurance technology is designed to protect participants and event organizers worldwide.
In North America, over 500 million people enrich their lives annually by registering for events on leading platforms like Events.com, however the majority of participants will not receive a refund from events if they cannot attend. The new TicketGuardian partnership will allow Events.com participants to protect their event registrations, even if the event itself might not otherwise have a comprehensive participant cancellation policy. Registrants will be presented with the opportunity to add “Standard” or “Full” insurance options during the registration process of events who have opted to provide the service.
TicketGuardian and Events.com’s strategic partnership leverages each company’s strengths, attendee/registrant insurance and event management software, respectively. Last minute schedule changes often represent the largest barrier to entry for many prospective participants. Removing that concern will provide peace of mind to participants and event organizers alike that is necessary in today’s “consumer first” marketplace.
“We are excited to partner with Events.com and to begin offering their events, and ultimately the registrants on their platform, confidence in their purchase and peace of mind. We all know that sometimes life happens and people cannot attend the event as planned, this is where TicketGuardian comes to the rescue.” said Bryan Derbyshire, Founder and CEO of TicketGuardian.
“We understand how important it is for participants to plan ahead, and for events to secure early ticket sales, so we are excited to work with innovators like TicketGuardian to add a win-win offer into our registration flow. Events.com constantly focuses on driving new value to event organizers and event participants,” said Mitch Thrower, Founder and Chairman of Events.com.
