Travel Salem has partnered with Box Office Tickets to bring AbsolutelyTix, a new ticketing network for Salem and Marion and Polk counties. The new AbsolutelyTix network makes it easy for local arts, non-profit, and other community organizations to promote events, sell tickets and transact other business over the Internet. It also provides a single source of online information about upcoming local shows and events.

“AbsolutelyTix furthers our mission to be a comprehensive resource for visitors through our Travel Café, which will now serve as a centralized ticketing outlet,” said Angie Morris, President and CEO of Travel Salem. “It also gives us the opportunity to support our local nonprofit organizations and partners by providing a much-needed service for ticketing. We partnered with Box Office Tickets because of its state-of-the-art ticketing, access to services and local focus." What's more, notes Morris, five cents from each ticket sold on www.absolutelytix.com will be donated to an area non-profit organization each year.

Box Office Tickets Inc., the first ticketing company to bring Web 2.0 to local arts and cultural communities, has been empowering the event and entertainment industry through innovative services since 1993. Known for the quality of its customer service and technology, boxofficetickets.com is a national brand with proven experiences in handling all types of events – the arts, sports, business conferences, etc.

"We're pleased to partner with Travel Salem to create a local ticketing network that will help connect people to events and support the local economy," said George Domurot, President/CEO of Box Office Tickets Inc. "Our online ticketing and transaction capabilities combined with Travel Salem's marketing and visitor outreach enables local organizations to promote their events and sell tickets to a much broader audience through the network."

The AbsolutelyTix network is open to all theaters and groups with ticketing needs in Salem and Marion and Polk Counties. There are no fees for network partner organizations.
