Capped ticket resale marketplace Twickets works with more than 300 live entertainment partners in the United Kingdom
By James Hanley on 20 Apr 2022
The UK’s Music Venue Trust (MVT) has confirmed a partnership with capped ticket resale marketplace Twickets.
Established in 2011, Twickets works with more than 300 live entertainment partners in the UK including venues, artists, promoters, festivals and ticketing companies.
“We are delighted to become a partner of MVT,” says Twickets founder Richard Davies. “This is a key development for us as it further embeds the business as the legitimate face of resale, working to bring fairness and transparency to event-goers everywhere.
“Our goal is always to improve the ticket buying experience”
“Our goal is always to improve the ticket buying experience, and we look forward to collaborating with all members of MVT to prevent blatant profiteering in the secondary ticket market, which not only harms fans but damages the industry as a whole.”
A charitable organisation, the MVT was founded in January 2014 to help protect, secure and improve music venues in the UK.
Mark Davyd, MVT founder and CEO, adds: “We are really pleased to welcome Twickets as one of MVT’s partners. Their mission to enable fans to resell tickets they can no longer use for the price they paid or less aligns well with MVT’s goals to keep tickets out of the hands of touts and in the hands of genuine grassroots gig going fans. Customers can buy from Twickets with the reassurance that they are supporting grassroots music venues across the UK.”
