The National Association of Ticket Brokers

It is the mission of the National Association of Ticket Brokers to:

(i) promote the highest standards of conduct among ticket brokers involved in the resale of event admission tickets

(ii) ensure that consumers and professional ticket brokers have the right and freedom to buy and sell tickets in a secondary marketplace governed by free market principles, not restrictive and counter-productive laws, rules and regulations

(iii) facilitate consumer protection in the secondary ticket market

(iv) assure that consumer interactions with NATB Members are conducted with integrity, reliability and convenience 

(v) educate the public concerning the secondary ticket market and ticket-brokering services


The National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB) was formed in 1994 by a group of concerned ticket brokers who desired to establish an industry-wide standard of conduct and to create ethical rules and procedures to protect the public and foster a positive perception of the industry.  While the goals of the NATB are many, our primary goal is to represent the interests of legitimate ticket brokers by promoting consumer protection and educating the public about our industry. This is done by assuring the public that when dealing with an NATB member, they are working with an honest, reliable broker that will deliver what is promised. In addition, the NATB has created a platform that allows the public to report unethical conduct by ticket brokers.
