Origins

Mike Domek founded VIP Tour Company in 1992 in Woodstock, IL.

In 1999, with no venture capital, Domek launched the TicketsNow.com web site. Inc. Magazine, featured TicketsNow as one of the "Great Companies Started for $1,000 or Less." In 2001, under Domek's direction, the company's software division rolled out the EventInventory Web store plug-in. This technology and subsequent programs have established TicketsNow.com as the world's largest online marketplace for premium event tickets.
