About City Winery
City Winery is the brainchild of Michael Dorf, founder of the iconic Knitting Factory, who wanted to create a space in Manhattan where he could combine his shared passions for wine and music. The core target audience of City Winery-urban wine enthusiasts who desire the experience of making their own wine, but who are not going to leave their comfortable Manhattan lifestyle to decamp to a vineyard-immediately became clear. But Michael wanted to create more than just a custom crush facility. Beyond making wine, Michael also wanted to focus on the enjoyment and satisfaction that comes from sharing wine with friends, and to capture the unique social bond that occurs when communities of like-minded people gather over a bottle of quality Cabernet, while dining on a freshly-prepared meal and listening to their favorite artists perform.
Allshows.com Looks at Primary and Secondary Markets as One Big Opportunity
To Jason Berger, the primary and secondary ticket markets are becoming one and the same and it all comes down to providing ticketing solutions to clients. Berger, a 20-year veteran of the ticket industry, is the managing partner of Greenwich, CT-based Allshows.com, and in keeping with his philosophy, the company has launched a move in recent months into the primary market.
All Shows has partnered with the Heirloom Arts Theatre in Connecticut, and Chocolate Tango: The Event in New Jersey, to provide primary ticketing solutions, a move Berger said helps the company continue to grow. The company has also partnered with the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut to help offer VIP experiences and meet-and-greets with artists, as well as premium seating for all playhouse events.
"The primary and secondary markets are clearly converging. There is no longer a clear distinction between both market sectors, as secondary brokers are increasingly working with primary sellers to get the venues filled," Berger told TicketNews. Traditionally, companies in the primary ticket market represent the original source of tickets, while the secondary market represents brokers who acquire tickets that they then resell.
"With that said, we are exploring all areas of growth in the ticket industry. We feel the industry as a whole is resilient and will trump other areas of the entertainment industry.
The company was able to step in to help the three entities when previous, unnamed ticket providers were not meeting their clients' needs. To do so, Berger said All Shows was able to draw on its knowledge of the local markets, expertise in the ticket industry, and a strong track record of customer service. "We also work with the venue on marketing strategy as well as ways to increase their ticket sales."
Berger would not disclose how the company works with each client, for example, whether they split the proceeds of tickets sold or whether the venue is paying All Shows a fee, but he said the company has developed a software platform for their primary market clients, which they will expand and customize to fit specific needs. The company currently employs 20 people and did not have to add staff to handle the new primary clients, but Berger said the company may look to increase staff if Allshows lands more clients.
"It's all about getting our clients what they need," Berger said. "We don't separate primary and secondary clients. We are here to provide great tickets and great service and that's what we will continue to do as the ticket industry grows."

GREENWICH, CT--(MARKET WIRE)--Jan 21, 2009 -- In yet another partnership developed to provide New York tri-state area consumers with unique entertainment experiences, AllShows.com today announced it has been named the primary ticket seller for the Heirloom Arts Theatre -- a theater with a long tradition of music and other performing arts in an intimate, café lounge atmosphere.
