LOCAL SEAT FILLING

OTL (aka On the List) supports the Tampa Bay arts and entertainment community

Tampa Bay Seat Fillers

OTL introduces local seat filler members to all kinds of fun shows, events, and opportunities. They get to treat guests and get out of the house more without the worry of individual ticket prices. The free tickets are awesome, as are the surprise opportunities!

Event Promoters

Promoters and event marketers have a free and private way to fill seats or attract new patrons. More theatre tickets are offered than anything else. However, OTL has also partnered with promoters of sports, comedy, music, virtual events, fairs and festivals, conferences, movies, escape rooms, golf, classes, anything goes!

How Local Seat Filling Works

  1. Pick a 2 or 4-seat membership plan
  2. Set up a username and password for the private members-only area
  3. When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the member area
  4. Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show
  5. You and your guest(s) are seated together
  6. Repeat for other shows you want to attend

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a Tampa seat filler?

You no longer have to be in Los Angeles or New York City to be a seat filler, as OTL has evolved the concept for local seat filling in Tampa, as well as other US locations and in London. Becoming a seat filler is as easy as registering on OTLSeatFillers.com.

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and a Tampa Bay seat filler?

Seat fillers for award shows (Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and BAFTAs) are filling seats for someone else. They temporarily fill in for celebrities and move from spot to spot during the event. OTL Seat Fillers might not be rubbing elbows with the stars, but they're comp ticket VIPs simply filling seats, not seats for someone else. They receive free pairs of tickets by private invitation from Tampa theatres and other venues.

What types of shows do Tampa area seat fillers attend?

Plays and musicals are at the top of the list for local seat fillers, but that's not all. OTL members have attended comedy shows, sporting events, classes, music, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies, and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in Tampa pay for tickets?

Zero. Tampa seat fillers don't pay anything for tickets, regardless of what paying patrons are charged. Instead, they pay low monthly dues averaging $10 per month, covering up to four complimentary tickets to anything they opt to attend. There's a discounted plan for seniors, military, first responders, and educators, too.

What are the benefits of seat filling in Tampa Bay?

Seat Fillers belong to the most entertaining club in the Tampa area. They receive free admission for all kinds of things to do in their hometown. Additionally, they get to treat their family and friends, too, through two or four-seat memberships. While comp tickets are an awesome benefit, OTL members love being introduced to new shows and events, and the surprise of seeing what pops up out of the blue.

Why are Tampa seat fillers offered free tickets to shows, events, and activities.?

Local seat filling is an effective event partnership marketing tool for event promoters, managers, marketers, and box office managers. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They also 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, inviting Tampa seat fillers is a great way to build a list for future marketing efforts.

How do Tampa area promoters and marketers partner with OTL Seat Fillers?

It only takes about five minutes to get the ball rolling with OTL Seat Fillers for effective partnership marketing. There's a dedicated event promoters page with an online event submission form on OTLSeatFillers.com. Submit the form, OTL follows up to confirm the details, and the show is then posted in the private members-only area. It's a successful partnership without any exchange of money or tickets. OTL compiles a reservation list, and seat fillers check-in at the venue right before the show.

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!
