These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of data.

"Maingate treats me great. It's easier to use, I save money on ticket fees and I get paid faster than my previous servicer by a long shot!""
- Rod Hall, Managing Partner
"All I can say is I will never use Ticket Master or Eventbrite again. Why would I pay so much more more or make my attendees pay more in fees? Our attendees appreciate Maingate as much as I do. The easiest and fastest ticking system I've ever used."

"Daylight Down has played shows all over and for a non-label supported band, we need to save every penny we can. We do that with Maingate Tickets"
