Flexible Mobile Search with Center Point Search

Event search is the most used feature on Ticketmaster. The Ticketmaster team has delivered some great search enhancements for Ticketmaster.com, like predictive search and supporting act display. Our mobile team has also worked to improve the search experience in the Ticketmaster app for the iPhone®. Our team set out to leverage all the powerful capabilities of mobile devices.

For one of our first mobile search enhancements, we wanted to give you the ability to see events around you based on your actual location.

Point radius search gives you the ability to select how far you’re willing to travel and it presents the live event options within that distance. When searching for an event, you will be able to determine how far you want to travel by using the radius slider. Maybe you are looking for an event that will fit into a weekend road trip or maybe you are looking for something a little closer to home, the radius slider will allow you to completely customize the search results based on distance. We took this concept further by displaying events outside of the radius, giving you two buckets of results: one of events within your desired radius and another of events outside. You can quickly reset the center point of your search by entering a city or a zip code. We’d love to hear what you think, email us at fanvoices@ticketmaster.com or hit the email button below.

We are working hard on other great features for the Ticketmaster apps. Thank you for being a fan!

Back to Football!

We are huge sports fans at Ticketmaster and we know you are just as excited as we are that football season is finally here.

We’ve worked with the NFL over the last several seasons on the NFL Ticket Exchange. It is the only official ticket exchange of the NFL where fans can buy and sell tickets with confidence that every ticket purchased is authentic so you are guaranteed a real ticket, every time.

If you are looking to catch your favorite team in action, there are some tickets still available through Ticketmaster.com and there are tens of thousands of tickets posted on the NFL Ticket Exchange. You can check out each week’s top NFL matchups on the NFL Ticket Exchange’s Buzz Index.

Let us know what you think and thank you for being a fan!
