Gold Coast Tickets Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Year-long Promotions to Celebrate 20 Years of Premier Ticket Selling
1994. The Dallas Cowboys handed the Buffalo Bills their fourth consecutive loss in Super Bowl XXVII. Green Day released their album Dookie which eventually sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Michael Jordan’s bronze statue was unveiled at the United Center. And Gold Coast Tickets opened its doors in Chicago’s Lake Point Tower.
A lot of things were different back then, including how tickets were bought and sold on the secondary ticket market. With the internet still in its early stages of home use and ticket marketplaces uninvented, customers could not simply go online to search out ticket availability and prices. Tickets were purchased the old-fashioned way. It was commonplace to stand in long and winding lines, sometimes overnight, to procure tickets to big events. And when those events sold out, you pulled out the Yellow Pages and called us. “Please, please….hook me up with some PHAT tickets to that Bulls playoff game.” “Oh snap,” we’d say as we pulled out the Rolodex and contacted everyone we knew to find seats that were perfect for you. (more 90’s slang words here in case you’re interested…)
All kidding aside, the demand for tickets in a city like Chicago whose sports teams fill stadiums and where concert and theatre tours never stop helped us to get to 20 years. But it was you, our valued customers, who took Gold Coast Tickets to the next level.
“Our customers have been the key reason we have continued our growth and expanded at the rate that we have. We owe it to them for trusting us with all of their ticket needs. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate 20 years than to give back to the people who make us great,” said Max Waisvisz, partner at Gold Coast Tickets.
To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we will be running monthly promotions through the end of the year with our first promo kicking off on February 6, 2014. Stay tuned for ticket giveaways to some of the coolest events in Chicago, contests to win great prizes, discounts, and so much more. Check back often.
Thanks for 20 years. Here’s to 20 more!
