"In re-launching The Belmont as one of the premier music venues in Austin, we searched long and hard to find the perfect ticketing partner," said Scott Heydt, President of Belmont Entertainment Group. "As technology evolves many of the tools in the marketplace are similar, but what we needed more than great tools was a collaborative and innovative partner. We found that in TicketMob, and look forward to growing our company with their technology and team for years to come."
