Normal, December 20, 2022 — The Corn Crib announces a new partnership with web-based ticketing solution vivenu. Beginning in 2023, vivenu will serve as the exclusive ticket provider of all events held at the facility, including baseball games, concerts, and special events.

The Corn Crib is a multipurpose outdoor event and entertainment venue located on the campus of Heartland Community College in Normal, IL.  As the exclusive ticket platform for all events hosted at the Corn Crib, vivenu will provide a fully mobile and digital ticketing solution that will transform the fan experience. The partnership will allow attendees to receive event tickets instantly on their mobile devices or computers and eliminate the need for hard-copy ticket options beginning in 2023.  

“We are excited to be working with vivenu,” said Matt Stembridge, President of Operations for the CornBelters.  “We are looking forward to upgrading our ticket process as a whole.  We believe the platform vivenu provides will significantly impact the ticket-buying and delivery process for our fans at the stadium.  We are always looking to improve on our current offerings, and vivenu has provided a solution where we needed to improve.”

vivenu is the future-proof solution for ticket sellers to efficiently manage, market, and analyze ticket sales. The platform was designed to support hundreds of thousands of promoters and venues around the world who previously had to work with clunky systems that couldn’t keep up with their needs and expectations. vivenu is the first customer-centric solution for the digital age that enables effortless and self-determined ticketing. Headquartered in Düsseldorf, the company supports hundreds of event organizers worldwide with its powerful, ready-to-use platform. vivenu is backed by leading tech investors such as Balderton Capital, Activant, Redalpine, and the San Francisco 49ers owners’ fund, who have invested more than $65 million in the company to date.
