otl PORTLAND ON-CALL seat filler Memberships

Portland is an "On-Call" Seat Filler location. There are fewer local opportunities compared to "Preferred" locations, so dues are much (much!) lower. But, even after Portland upgrades to preferred status (after the membership grows and more shows and events are offered), your lower on-call dues will lock in for at least a year.

Seat Fillers in Portland, Oregon

OTL Seat Fillers introduces members to all kinds of fun shows, events, and opportunities. They get out of the house more and treat their family and friends without the worry of individual ticket prices. And, while those free tickets are the biggest perk, it's also just fun to see what pops up from time to time!

Event Promoters

Event promoters and marketing specialists have a free and private way to fill seats or attract new patrons. Plays and musicals are offered more than anything else. However, OTL isn't limited to theater! Comedy, music, sports, virtual events, burlesque, fairs and festivals, conferences, movies, escape rooms, golf, classes, pretty much anything goes!

How Local Seat Filling Works

Pick a 2 or 4-seat plan

Register, setting up a username and password for the private VIP-only area

When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the private VIP area

Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show

You and your guest(s) are seated together

Repeat for other shows you want to attend (but please understand that, as a seat fillers club, events won't always be available)

*Keep in mind that Portland is an on-call seat-filling location, meaning occasional opportunities instead of regular events in the area.

Thanks for having such a great service!  I have experienced so many cool events and none of which I would have thought to go to without my membership.  You have successfully removed me from my seat at home and placed me in a considerably more entertaining seat!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in Portland?

OTL Seat Fillers has evolved the awards show seat fillers concept for community seat filling in Portland, across the US, and London. Visit OTLSeatFillers.com to be the newest comp ticket VIP in Oregon.

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and a local seat filler, like in Portland?

Even though it's fun, seat fillers for award shows (Academy Awards, Grammys, etc.) are still there to do a job. They temporarily fill empty seats for celebrities if they're lucky enough to be chosen and put to work. While local seat fillers might not be sitting amongst the stars, they get to enjoy the show. Seat Fillers receive pairs of free tickets by private invitation from OTL's community venue partners, and they're treated just like every other audience member.

What types of shows do OTL Portland seat fillers attend?

Over the years, Portland seat fillers have been invited to a wide variety of community events, but theatre tickets are the most common. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, they've also attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, burlesque, virtual events, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in the Portland area pay for tickets?

OTL Portland seat fillers don't pay anything for tickets, and that includes no ticket fees or upcharges. Their incredibly low monthly all-inclusive membership dues (less than $5.00) cover the free admission to shows and events that pop up from time to time.

What are the benefits of seat filling in Portland?

Seat fillers in Portland belong to the most entertaining club around. Not only do they receive complimentary admission to fun things to do, but they get to treat their family and friends, too. While free tickets are the primary benefit, it's exciting to see what pops up unexpectedly. OTL members also love being introduced to new shows and events that they might not have been aware of without being a local seat filler.

Why do Portland area shows, events, and activities use local seat fillers?

Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is effective partnership marketing and a free, private, and easy way to fill seats for venues and organizations. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They buy food, beverages, and merchandise, bring guests above and beyond their seat-filling privileges, and tend to return to venues they love (even without comp tickets!). Additionally, seat fillers check in for their comp tickets upon arrival, so it's a great way to build a marketing list for future events.

How do event promoters and marketers take advantage of seat-filling in the Portland, Oregon area?

Anyone who wants to work with OTL and extend invitations to seat fillers simply fills out an online event submission form on OTLSeatFillers.com to provide the basics. The opportunity is then posted in the private members-only area, and a reservation list is compiled and sent to the venue.
