Terms of Service

If Ticket Central agrees to sell your tickets there will be a $100 setup charge for this service. In your initial set-up meeting, you will be asked to sign a contract agreeing to all of the above information. In addition, you will agree that NO ONE ELSE will be selling tickets at the same time. This means that your organization cannot sell tickets out of your office or anywhere else while we are representing your event.

If at any time you break the contract, it will become null and void, and Ticket Central will no longer represent your event.

NOTE: Ticket Central does offer a ticket printing service that allows you to distribute tickets on your own.
