When you’ve invented Ticket Bots and purchased more than 1,500,000 tickets amassing more than $25million in profits, you’ve learned a few things about the ticketing business! Ken was the principle founder of the infamous Wiseguy Tickets. He cornered the majority of premium tickets for the hottest events and became the leading source for secondary markets. At his peak, Lowson was running an international network of 100,000 IP addresses using co-located servers.
Wiseguy had zero inventory risk, unlimited broker credit cards, and 1,000+ individual primary seller accounts. Their Bot performance was measured in milliseconds ensuring the front of the online queues plus automated visual and audio CAPTCHA without using Optical Character Recognition.
The Wiseguy operation became so powerful that for one US Football Rose Bowl game, it purchased 990 out of a 1,000-seat allocation. Federally indicted in 2011, Ken pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
He has returned to the ticket world to share his inside knowledge and benefit live event creators by eliminating unwanted reselling and recapturing fan spending power. As the “Catch Me If You Can” guy of tickets, he can stop Bots, reduce fraud and boost PR.
