Tickets.com is proud to announce a new partnership with Caymax Sports Ltd., which will see all ticketing for the inaugural Cayman Islands Classic managed via the ProVenue® platform.
Taking place in November 2017 and founded in conjunction with Global Sports Management, the Cayman Islands Classic is a new preseason basketball tournament which will welcome eight top-flight teams from across the US as part of the NCAA Division I preseason tournament schedule.
The three-day competition will be held at the John Gray Gymnasium, a new multi-sport 2,000-seat facility, and will aim to mirror the success of similar tournaments including Hawaii’s Maui Invitational and the Bahamas’ Battle 4 Atlantis.
The event is also backed by the Cayman Islands government as part of its strategy to attract more visitors to the island, and forms part of its longer-term plans to host a growing number of multi-sport international events throughout the year.
Using ProVenue®, spectators will be able to purchase tickets online and use the MyTickets™ account management platform to manage all aspects of their bookings.
This will include ticket forwarding and exchange, online voucher redemption and access to targeted promotions and offers.
Through MyTickets™, patrons will also have access to Consign-Back™, the Tickets.com resale platform which allows patrons to re-sell unused tickets through primary sales channels.
Designed to help combat the challenges surrounding the secondary ticketing market, Consign-Back™manages all sales through ProVenue® and offers a secure and trustworthy platform for both sellers and buyers.
The advanced functionality and patron-centric design of ProVenue® – with reference to its mobile-first approach – were also cited as primary reasons for Caymax Sports’ decision to partner with Tickets.com and ProVenue®.
As part of the support provided to Caymax Sports, Tickets.com will also fulfil all orders with custom-design ticket stock.
“We are excited about our partnership with Tickets.com,” said Caymax Sports CEO Joe Wright.
“The Cayman Islands Classic will be a world class event and we wanted to make sure that the fans and supporters would have an equally awesome experience with regards to obtaining and managing their tickets.”
