Eventbrite has acquired self-service ticketing provider ticketscript, making it Europe’s third largest ticketing platform after Ticketmaster and Eventim.
In a post on the ticketscript website, co-founder and CEO Frans Jonker thanked customers for their “trust and commitment to us over the last ten years”, adding that he was confident the acquisition would enable the company to “take our commitment to you to the next level.”
Jonker also promised that in the years to come, ticketscript customers would have access to Eventbrite’s promotional tools, reserved seating capabilities and organiser app.
Ticketscript, founded in 2006, is currently headquartered in Amsterdam and is active in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and Belgium.
“This acquisition supercharges Eventbrite’s footprint in Europe and brings 10 additional years of traction in the music space and experience in European markets to our business," said Eventbrite CEO Julia Hartz. "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.”
