Message from CEO '15
Firstly, I would like to thank all AnotherTicket customers for your valued support during past twelve months. It has been a year of research, development, transition and launch for the company, as well as seeing us expand the team with the arrival of John Turner to head up Communications Director.
Challenges and Priorities 2016
Imran Ilyas | CEO & Co-Founder of AnotherTicket
Although it has been only four months since AnotherTicket officially launched, we have continued our commitment to support our customers through innovation and development of the AnotherTicket platform, technologies and applications.
2015 has seen changes to the UK laws to reduce ticket touting, as well as increased pressure on the government to make further restrictions to clamp down on the flouting of new laws and industrial-scale touting. The popularity of live music and sporting events and the ease of buying online has led to an explosion in the number of ‘bedroom touts’ who buy large numbers of tickets with the sole aim of selling them for a profit. There has been growing consternation among politicians, artists and venues in defense of genuine fans losing out on valuable experiences and money because of unethical profiteering.
In short, the current circumstances in which we find ourselves are challenging. But no matter what the obstacles are, we must not lose sight of our priority: to live up to our mission statement and values to be unwavering and ethical, putting events goers at the heart of everything we do. We continue to support our customers and provide advice when needed, flexibility when possible and a clear and simple platform for buying and selling tickets ethically worldwide.
Ultimately, the past year has been rewarding, whether this be the development of AT, or, most importantly, listening to you, our customers. I would like to thank for all the support and enthusiasm of our service. 2016 will bring its own set of challenges but I’m sure by working together, keeping focused on our priorities and putting YOU first, we will realise our ambitions. Our priorities here at AnotherTicket will remain unchanged, and we look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you.
From everyone at AnotherTicket, I hope you have a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
