APRIL 13, 2011 BIRMINGHAM, AL. TicketBiscuit announced today the acquisition of Portland, Oregon-based private-label ticketing company Dais Limited. Under the new arrangement, Dais Founder Jason Mastrine will join TicketBiscuit as the Western Region Director of Business Development.
“Dais’ approach of empowering clients by providing total ownership and control aligns perfectly with our philosophy and service model,” TicketBiscuit CEO Jeff Gale said, “we’re excited to bring them into the family.”
TicketBiscuit Chief Marketing Officer Eric Housh added that the acquisition will help TicketBiscuit grow by establishing immediate presence in the Oregon and Colorado markets. “We see these two areas as having high growth potential in the live music and entertainment space, and Dais’ existing relationships have allowed us to hit the ground running.”
Dais’ client base includes Mississippi Studios, Yarmony Grass Music Festival, The Alberta Rose Theatre, Mishawaka Amphitheater, and STS9’s Re:Generation Festival. Previously, Dais worked with several different ticketing providers, based on client needs, but Mastrine said that his existing clients were all excited to transition over to TicketBiscuit. “TicketBiscuit is a great fit for our clients across the board. What Jeff, Eric and their team have built is a system we once dreamed of building ourselves. I’m excited to be joining a company where the software literally sells itself,” Mastrine added.
TicketBiscuit, founded in 2001, provides proprietary software that powers the online ticket sales of over 500 clients in 1500 venues across the United States and Canada. TicketBiscuit’s complete suite of services and solutions empowers clients to sell tickets online through their own websites, via call center, and via the TicketBiscuit web-based box office interface.

Last week, I and several of my colleagues from TicketBiscuit had the pleasure of spending a few great days in Phoenix, Arizona at the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) Annual Conference. It was a fantastic experience, an extremely well organized event, and a great time overall. We met literally hundreds of friendly casino operators, vendors, and tribal members, and made a lot of new friends. I am very much looking forward to building on the relationships we started there.
Monday we kicked off the morning a well-attended workshop entitled “SOLD OUT! How to Fill The House For Your Entertainment Events.” In the session, we shared best practices from our client base and insights gathered over our years of relentless innovation in the event marketing space.
