Gary Witt, CEO of Pabst Theater Group, said, “From our inception, the focus of the Pabst Theater Group has been on developing its community while working in a business that is based upon selling tickets. As we continue to seek ways to better serve this community, we’ve grown to become incredibly selective about choosing our partners. When selecting a ticketing provider, once again our focus was on doing what was best for our community. With more than 400 shows each year, we needed a ticketing partner that has a tangible presence, both for us and for our community. We chose Etix because they have a reputation for providing world-class customer service, and we know that our community will appreciate that personal touch when they need it most.”
