SAN DIEGO -- February 12, 2013

The ACTIVE Network, Inc. (NYSE:ACTV), the leaders in cloud-based Activity and
Participant Management™ (APM) solutions, today launched WannaDo^SM, a
self-ticketing platform that helps event organizers of every size create and
tailor events to what users say they want to do. WannaDo is designed to create
a marketplace for events and activities by crowdsourcing people's interests,
or bucket lists, within a single platform, connecting to social networks, and
providing organizers with easy-to-use ticketing tools to immediately fulfill
this demand.

"WannaDo has the ability to bring about a fundamental shift in the way events
and activities go to market by allowing organizers to understand and target
demand before they take on the risk and cost of producing an event or
activity," said Darko Dejanovic, president at ACTIVE Network. "WannaDo enables
people to get out and participate by matching people with recommended
activities and instantly connecting them with friends who will join along."

The marketplace for activities is boundless. Activities ranging from the
typical, like taking a class, experiencing a food and wine tour or exploring
the outdoors, to the unique, like samurai sword fighting or learning trapeze,
have a home on WannaDo. With WannaDo’s ticketing platform, event and activity
organizers of all kinds can expect:

  *No fees when setting up free events, lower fees if they’re collecting
  *Stunning event pages through ACTIVE’s unique EventCanvas tool
  *One-click event details, including attendee and financial information
  *A simple and elegant user experience
  *Technology infrastructure from a company that powers hundreds of thousands
    of events annually

“WannaDo was founded on a few simple principles— organizers need something
that’s easier to use, something that produces elegantly designed and targeted
event pages, and a platform without all the ticketing fees,” said Bob Bennett,
general manager of WannaDo. “Through WannaDo, organizers can create and
customize better experiences because they can finally see what people want to
do. By bringing activities and participants together on a single platform, we
believe it will inspire people to get active and explore activities they never
thought possible."
