Clinton gala to Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster has been tapped by the Presidential Inaugural Committee as the official ticketer for the festivities surrounding the 1997 presidential inaugural.

The two days of events, set for Jan. 19 and 20, will boast 14 inaugural balls as well as the Inaugural Gala and parade.

The ticketer expects to offer more than 150,000 of the sought-after ducats via telephone and mail order.

Ticketmaster bested proposals from such outfits as IBM/Prologue, the ticketer which handled the 1996 Olympic Games, to land the prestigious pact.

“We are particularly pleased to have been selected by the (PIC),” Fred Rosen, prexy/CEO of Ticketmaster, told Daily Variety. “Our agreement with the PIC highlights the breadth of our services, which extend beyond entertainment and sports.”
