Gone are the days of Lobo fans having to visit a UNM ticketing office to make it easy to purchase tickets for sports and special events. Paciolan, a leading provider of ticketing, fundraising, marketing and analytics solutions for universities, has entered into a partnership with The University of New Mexico on a new, easy to use ticketing platform. 

Paciolan will provide UNM with a cohesive solution that integrates easy to use digital ticketing, fundraising, marketing and CRM solutions for the University’s Lobo athletics program, special events and performing arts program including Popejoy Hall. 

As part of the agreement, Paciolan-owned Ballena Technologies will create virtual venues for UNM facilities, empowering ticket buyers to preview sightlines and select seats. Season ticket holders renewing or upgrading tickets will have an easy option to sample the view from their seats without making a trip to the venue. 

"We are proud to partner with Paciolan, an industry leader in ticketing and fundraising,” said Eddie Nuñez, UNM’s director of Athletics. “As we push to enhance our Lobo fan experience, we are confident that we have found the right partner for our Athletic Department and The University of New Mexico.”

With Access Management, UNM will enable eventgoers to purchase mobile tickets, scan upon entry with their smart phone, manage their accounts directly from their mobile devices and seamlessly transfer or exchange tickets for events they cannot attend. 

“We welcome the opportunity to work collaboratively with Paciolan to enrich our relationships with our patrons, reach new customers and grow demand for our events” said Tom Tkach, director of UMN Public Events and Popejoy Hall. 

 As a new partner, Paciolan is eagerly looking forward to working with the University. 

“We look forward to providing The University of New Mexico fans and patrons with a world-class experience,” said Paciolan President and CEO Kim Damron. “Armed with Paciolan’s personalized solutions, we know UNM will take their growth strategies to the next level and foster an even deeper connection with their vibrant Lobo community.”
