NATB Members Offer Reliable, Reputable, Guaranteed Option for Venue Admission

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB), the leading organization representing hundreds of ticket brokers with membership standards that promote ethical business conduct, reminds consumers to buy tickets from NATB ticket brokers, as all purchases are backed by a solid 200% guarantee.

With major events such as the World Series soon underway, the NATB wants fans to shop safely and avoid buying illegitimate tickets. Since the NATB is frequently recommended by the Better Business Bureau, consumers who want a safe and secure experience should be certain they buy tickets from an NATB accredited ticket agency. The NATB stamp of approval provides consumers with peace of mind that the tickets they purchase are covered by an unprecedented 200% Money Back Guarantee.

"For 20 years, ticket buyers have relied on NATB-approved ticket resellers when purchasing tickets on the secondary ticket market," said Gary Adler, Executive Director, NATB.  "NATB ticket sellers provide 'white glove' service that is seldom available from most other ticket vendors," continued Adler.

The NATB reminds fans nationwide that they have choices when buying concert, sports and theater tickets on the resale market. NATB's membership includes ticket agencies from around the country which means fans have hundreds of choices. More choices presents better options and often better prices than those offered at the box office.

For all future ticket purchases, make sure it's done safely with an accredited NATB ticket agency. To locate an NATB ticket agency, search members on or look for the NATB logo on their website.

About NATB                                                     
The National Association of Ticket Brokers was formed in 1994 by a group of leading ticket brokers involved in the sale of sports, concerts and theater admission tickets, for the purpose of establishing an industry-wide standard of conduct and to create ethical rules and procedures to educate the public concerning ticket-brokering services and to serve the primary goal of the NATB -- promoting consumer protection. All members of the NATB are dedicated to the principle of assuring the public that dealings with NATB members are conducted with integrity, reliability and convenience. To this end, the NATB has created procedures that permit the public to report improper and unethical conduct by ticket brokers, and to disseminate consumer protection warnings and guidelines. Through self-governance, the NATB has provided many enhanced protections for ticket-buying consumers. The NATB has worked with law enforcement agencies across the country, state and federal legislators and the NFL and other professional sports leagues and teams, to accomplish these goals, and has been vital in the NFL's fight against counterfeit and stolen tickets.
