Greece Greece - Ticketpro Greece launched its operations on March 1st, 2006. Their first event was the Rolling Stones concert presented in Athens’ Olympic Stadium on Sunday, June 25. As no ticketing software has yet been homologated by the Greek authorities, all tickets emitted must be “stamped” by the Greek taxation authorities before being distributed in the marketplace (Ticket House currently being the most successful ticketing network of the country). Ticketpro is confident that Ticketsoft should be homologated by the proper Greek authorities sometime before the end of 2007. While completing the homologation, Ticketpro continues to expand its presence in the marketplace by being the exclusive Internet ticketing service provider of Ticket House inventory.
