NEW YORK, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group), one of the largest privately held travel and entertainment providers in the United States, announced today that it has joined forces with the original owners of NewYork.com to give the most visited city in the world a new home and a new vision. NewYork.com will be transformed later this summer to serve as the central resource for researching information, planning activities and visiting New York.
EBG will be operating NewYork.com on behalf of a joint ownership group. As the new trusted site for visitors to source information and book New York hotels, Broadway shows, attractions, events, tours and much more all in one place, Brett Reizen, president and CEO of EBG, says NewYork.com will sell thousands of admission tickets and hotel rooms in the most desirable locations.
"EBG sells more than 4 million admission tickets and thousands of hotel rooms annually and we're confident the new site will quickly become the #1 destination website for New York," said Reizen. "Using the latest cutting-edge technology, NewYork.com will provide a seamless user experience, taking the guess-work and headache out of researching, planning and purchasing tickets and hotel rooms for hundreds of venues and attractions. Our vision is to make NewYork.com the ultimate resource for everything New York."
As a leading distributor of travel-related activities and live entertainment ticketing, EBG retails products and services through multiple distribution channels. Contracted with the most popular shows and attractions, live entertainment producers and venues, EBG sells tickets through its own proprietary ticketing system which, unlike most major ticketing systems, allows users to bundle a hotel and tickets for multiple shows and attractions all in one shopping cart. Additionally, EBG's trusted customer service is supported 365 days a year by two customer service call centers to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
With offices in New York, Aventura (Miami), Las Vegas and Orlando, EBG's current portfolio of brands include business to consumer and business to business websites, 35 retail locations in Las Vegas, a proprietary point of sale concierge ticketing solution and inventory distribution and technology solutions for several leading travel and entertainment companies.
