Connecting With New Fans: Ticketmaster and FEVO’s Next-Level Fan Engagement
Say hello to FEVO™, an innovative social e-commerce platform that simplifies group ticket purchases. Whether bringing FEVO capabilities into your fan experience through the Nexus Partner Program or finding new fans in new places through Distributed Commerce, this Ticketmaster partnership can help you reach new fans like never before.
In this article, we explore how clients like the Harlem Globetrotters, Cirque du Soleil and Nutcracker! Magical Christmas Ballet are leveraging this partnership to provide value to their fans:
Group Offers Were a Slam Dunk for the Globetrotters
The Harlem Globetrotters raised their game to new heights by partnering with the Nexus team and integrating their ticketing systems with the FEVO platform. By promoting and selling group ticket discounts, fans were able to purchase tickets together with ease.
The result? A slam dunk in their sales goals – scoring thousands of new tickets sold across multiple venues in just a few months! And by leveraging FEVO’s platform, the Globetrotters were able to create a fun and engaging ticket-buying experience that had their fans cheering for more.
- 1,200 tickets sold in the less than 3 months

Cirque du Soleil Reaches New Fans Through Costco Offers
As Costco’s technology partner for ticketing, FEVO and Distributed Commerce enable Ticketmaster clients to reach Costco members both online and directly in its warehouses. And it’s not just about reach – it’s also about targeting. Corteo by Cirque du Soleil teamed up with FEVO’s Costco program to offer exclusive ticket deals to Costco members. Shoppers could choose from various markets and performances while taking advantage of prices reserved for members.
Through this partnership, Cirque du Soleil can continue to find fans where they are and deliver a seamless purchase experience – online and offline.
Social Commerce Drove Success for Nutcracker! Magical Christmas Ballet
One of the FEVO’s most innovative features is social-sharing. Through the Nexus partnership, fans can easily purchase tickets as a group, split payments before checkout and share the event on their social networks to generate additional sales and attendance.
For a seasonal family event, Nutcracker! Magical Christmas Ballet, social sharing was an exciting opportunity. By leveraging FEVO’s social cart and friend group feature, Nutcracker! Magical Christmas Ballet gave friends and family across the United States a seamless way to purchase tickets together.
- 4,000+ tickets sold for the 2022 season
