Lyte is a reservations technology platform that has reimagined e-commerce for live events.  In an industry where the standard is “no refunds, no exchange,” and event-goers have to compete with automated scripts, ticket scalpers and each other for access to the tickets they want, Lyte lets fans easily reserve tickets to their favorite events and to return those tickets, no questions asked, if their life plans change. Our mission is to fill every seat and make the event experience magical for fans.
