Ticketmaster Choose ECAL for their ‘Add to Calendar’

Live Nation / Ticketmaster (US), the world’s leading live event and ticketing company, has chosen ECAL to launch the $7.2 billion entertainment giant’s calendar-based community engagement, ticket sales and transaction marketing program.

Launched on Monday 2nd May 2016, first stage implementation sees the ECAL ‘Add to Calendar’ feature alongside every event on ticketmaster.com and concerts.livenation.com.

This free feature, gated by the Ticketmaster login, allows their global community of experience seekers to easily add any event to their personal calendar on mobile or desktop, so they don’t miss their favorite sports team, music artist or entertainment event ever again.

A totally live and dynamic feature, latest details and updates for the event appear in the fans’ personal calendar, along with important pre-sale and on-sale ticketing dates – giving fans first access to buy tickets, straight from their calendar.
