Eventbrite, a billion-dollar American event management platform, has acquired Amsterdam-based Ticketscript to increase its presence in Europe. Ticketscript is a platform where event organisers can sell tickets online for live events like music festivals.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Ticketscript has sold tickets to over 100,000 events in Europe. Meanwhile, Eventbrite processed 150 million tickets for more than 600,000 event organisers in 180 countries just last year.
“This acquisition supercharges Eventbrite’s footprint in Europe and brings ten additional years of traction in the music space and experience in European markets to our business,” said Julia Hartz, CEO and co-founder of Eventbrite, as reported by TechCrunch. “It perfectly aligns with our strategic vision to become the world’s leading marketplace for live experiences, and adds significant assets and technical power to our platform. We are looking forward to this new partnership combining the best solutions from both companies, and bringing them to our customers around the world.”
