Houston, TX (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- New website allows you to compare ticket prices in a user friendly graphical interface while assisting in the fight against cancer. Skyrocketing ticket prices for popular live sports, music and theater events makes finding a great deal a challenge. Evaluating tickets to live events is different than price comparison for travel tickets where price is the single biggest consideration in weighing tickets to the same destination. In the case of live events tickets like concert tickets, Broadway show tickets and more; where you sit must be considered in comparing tickets of a similar price. SeatKarma.com solves this problem by aggregating tickets from tens of different ticket sites, and laying them out over the seating chart for the event. The user can narrow the search results by setting price and quantity requirements. Users are provided with direct links to the broker or marketplace website to make their purchase.
According to Chris Nicolaysen, CTO for SeatKarma.com, "the site has over 1,200 live maps of venues in the USA and Canada, including almost all professional sports venues and most of the popular concert and theater venues. We expect this number to be 1,500 in the next few months. For events at venues for which we currently do not have a live map, a static seating chart is usually available. The SeatKarma engine covers about 98% of secondary-market tickets available online."
Loyal to its name, SeatKarma emphasizes doing good, and pledges to donate 10% of its pre-tax profits to the American Cancer Society, and other charitable causes (For more information see [http://www.seatkarma.com/charity.php]).
The SeatKarma team is working on a series of additional features to enhance the customer experience, including social networking, mobile applications, and further improvement of the user interface.
