1iota tags itself as the ultimate connection for fans. The people over at 1iota are able to provide fans with a number of exclusive opportunities because they are hired by event producers to fill audience seats with the fans they need. In a nutshell, event producers hire 1iota to 'hire' you to make their shows look incredibly fun and awesome. Pretty cool right? And the best part is...there's no catch! As you can probably guess, 1iota shows are a hot commodity so waiting lists and lotteries are commonly held once certain events have reached capacity. However, this site makes it a point to try to get as many people in as they can. Past 1iota shows include the VMAs, VH1 Divas, the MTV Movie Awards, and The big deal.
