QuintEvents

Conceptually, our story began when CEO Brian Learst and his partner, Ken Kurek, headed up a packaging effort with the 1994 World Cup Organizing Committee. They saw the need for clients to have security when buying from events companies, so they would be guaranteed to get what they bought. With that idea as its spark, QuintEvents was born in Learst’s basement in 2002. Today, we represent some of the greatest names in sports and entertainment offering Official Ticket Packages to 65+ events around the world. We are built on our mission to deliver everything promised to our customers; by working directly with the event organizer, we are able to give our customers an elevated experience they will never forget. Now over a decade later, as our partnerships continue to grow, there is no limit to what event we will offer next - but our mission will forever stay the same. QuintEvents is proud to be an Official Hospitality Provider to the greatest names in sports and entertainment. Get the security of buying packages direct from the source and the exclusive benefits from our "Official" relationships. Insider extras include seats in large blocks, in-stadium/arena hospitality, private security entrances, early delivery of tickets – weeks in advance of the event, access to the best hotels, parties, official gift bags and more!
