ticketscript announces 10 millionth ticket sold as it tops £200m in ticket sales

Europe’s largest self-service digital ticketing solution sells milestone ticket for Brighton Pride event

ticketscript today announced that it has sold over 10 million tickets at a value of £200m. This milestone follows ticketscript’s recent rebrand that promises to help event organisers to “sell more”.

Launched in 2006, ticketscript has demonstrated incredible growth – 33% of the 10 million tickets sold have been in the last year alone – by giving promoters the right tools and insight to ensure their event is a success.

Frans Jonker, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are so excited to announce this milestone at one of our biggest events: ADE. We know our customers are serious about their business and we are extremely proud to provide them with a solution that has allowed them to sell over 10 million tickets – a great achievement.

“We fundamentally believe that if organisers have full control over their data, their events will see an increase in ticket sales, community and revenue. This has been proven as we celebrate this milestone – an incredible achievement over such a short time.”

This rapid growth directly correlates with ticketscript introducing innovative technology to its customers. It was the first to embrace mobile ticketing and in the last year has since seen mobile ticket sales increase by 121%*.

ticketscript also responded to changing customer demands when it introduced its Facebook integration. Since then, traffic to the ticketshop via Facebook has grown 103%* YOY, where traffic to the ticketshop via a mobile device, including tablets, has risen by a staggering 248%*. One large festival client saw their Facebook ‘Likes’ double through the use of the ticketscript platform.

Jonker continues: “We are definitely at a tipping point in the industry and the vast growth following our adoption of new technology proves this – the fact that we have sold £55m worth of tickets in just nine months also showcases that organisers are selling more with our tools and data.”
