The official tourist board for Greater Manchester has teamed up with the premium ticketing marketplace to help music and sports fans get VIP access to live events.

Seat Unique is delighted to be working with Marketing Manchester – the agency charged with promoting Greater Manchester nationally and internationally, which also incorporates the official tourist board Visit Manchester – to help music and sports fans access premium tickets and hospitality packages for live events.

Throughout the partnership, Marketing Manchester will exhibit Seat Unique’s range of VIP experiences for Greater Manchester-based events through the Visit Manchester website and social media channels. With a host of concerts and sporting events scheduled for 2021 and 2022, this will be a fantastic opportunity for attracting tourists who want to enjoy a once in a lifetime experience while they’re visiting the city.

Seat Unique has great access to a range of hospitality facilities at the biggest and best venues in Greater Manchester. A variety of hospitality experiences for in-demand events are available to purchase through their secure platform, including the Rugby League World Cup (RLWC).

As the official sales agent of the RLWC, premium tickets and hospitality packages for the RLWC21 Final at Old Trafford on 27th November can be booked now, with prices starting from £150 per person + VAT.

Seat Unique also works closely with Manchester United, Manchester City and Old Trafford Cricket Ground. The premium ticketing works with the clubs and venues directly to ensure all premium tickets and hospitality packages listed on their site are 100% official and guarantee entry.

As digital transformation experts, Seat Unique help clubs and venues transform outdated booking systems by bringing every aspect of the hospitality process online. Their software allows clubs and venues to sell hospitality tickets to fans safely and securely, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. By powering online hospitality sales in this way, we’re helping fans get greater access to premium experiences anytime and anywhere.

Robin Sherry, CEO and Founder of Seat Unique, said: “We’re proud to be partnered with some of the biggest clubs and venues in the world. It’s a great time to working with clubs like Old Trafford Cricket, who’ve got some exciting cricket fixtures and concerts pencilled in for 2021/22, such as the Courteeners and The Killers.

We’re thrilled to be working with Visit Manchester and as we come out of lockdown, we look forward to welcoming fans back to stadiums and opening up VIP access for all.”

Sheona Southern, Managing Director at Marketing Manchester, added: “Live events are the backbone of Greater Manchester’s tourism, hospitality and leisure sector and will be essential for rebuilding our tourism economy over the coming months and years.

“As we’ve already seen in the short time since live events restarted, there is a huge level of pent up demand from people who have missed out on seeing their favourite artist, band or team, and we are delighted to be partnering with a brand and platform like Seat Unique, which offers the chance to take experience to the next level with premium tickets and hospitality packages at some of Greater Manchester’s best venues.”
