HOUSTON - Ron Artest and Brent Barry arent the only big name additions to the Rockets 2008-09 line-up. This season, the Rockets and Toyota Center are launching Flash Seats to revolutionize the way fans manage, transfer and sell tickets to the big games, as well as how they enter those sporting events.
For season ticket holders that choose Flash Seats, paper tickets essentially become obsolete; now the only thing required to get in the door is a valid form of ID. But the benefits of Flash Seats extend far beyond mere game-day convenience. Thats because Flash Seats now serves as the Houston Rockets officially-endorsed secondary ticket marketplace.
Rockets Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Chris Dacey explains.
Its really a win-win for all our customers, says Dacey. It will help our season ticket holders get into Toyota Center faster, transfer tickets electronically and list for sale any seats that potentially may not be utilized. Our entire fan base will then be able to check out rockets.flashseat.com to see what might be available even for the sold out games."
For season ticket holders, Flash Seats is a slam dunk solution.
Season ticket holders have always wanted a way to more effectively manage their book of tickets, says Dacey. So were saying: A.) You can get in the door quicker you dont have to worry about finding the paper tickets in your desk drawer; you just come in and swipe your credit card or drivers license and youre in. B.) It lets you know whos using your tickets. So if youre a season ticket holder and youve got 41 tickets and they get bounced around the office, you will understand how those tickets are being used, when they were used and who actually came to the game. It helps our customers better manage their inventory.
And if you dont come to every game, you dont have to worry about paying a broker a service charge for listing your tickets, because season ticket holders can list their Flash Seats on the marketplace for free.
Also, right up until five minutes after game time, you can use a computer, cell phone or PDA to instantly transfer those tickets to a friend, family member or anyone else who is signed up with a flash seats account so they can attend the game.
