Ticketek is an Australian event ticketing company. Formed in 1979, the company is owned by PBL Media, and operates ticketing operations for entertainment and sporting events in Australia, Argentina and New Zealand.

Ticketek was part of PBL's Consolidated Press Holdings until it was transferred to PBL's internet arm, ecorp, in 1999, two years after introducing online ticketing in Australia. [ [http://www.computerworld.com.au/index.php/id;424284158 PBL Internet acquires Ticketek] , "Computerworld", 24 May 1999.] Ticketek was a key factor in that company's financial survival during a two-year disastrous foray on the public stock exchange, when the company was re-privatised by PBL.

In November 2000, Ticketek formed a Hong Kong company called Ticketek Hong Kong in a joint venture with the Hong Kong Ticketing Alliance. [Aldred, Jessica: [http://www.internetnews.com/bus-news/article.php/431201 Ticketek Books Into Hong Kong] , Internet News, 7 August 2000.] In early 2003, ecorp sold its 50% stake in the Hong Kong operation to HKTA, with the venture being renamed Hong Kong Ticketing Limited.

Ticketek sells around 10 million tickets annually. The company has ticketing contracts with certain venues such as the Sydney Cricket Ground, and formerly the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
