Eventbrite expands into Asian ticketing market

Eventbrite expands into Asian ticketing market
March 3, 2019

Eventbrite has expanded into the Asian market with the launch of a new Singapore-based platform.

The move marks the ticketing and event technology firm’s first localised platform in the Asian market.

The eventbrite.sg site will help Singaporean event creators to curate local content and create a native checkout and payment processing in Singapore Dollars (SGD), among other solutions.

Eventbrite claims to have powered more than 90,000 events in the country since the platform’s inception, along with more than 4.9 million tickets sold.

The ticketing company also claims more than 17,000 Singaporean event creators already use the platform.

Phil Silverstone, Eventbrite’s General Manager - Asia Pacific, advised “Singapore is a nation where live experiences are deeply woven into the cultural fabric.

“From its dynamic arts festivals to its world-famous food scene, there’s always something new and exciting to do in the Lion City; and it’s a market we view as strategic to Eventbrite’s long-term success in the Asia Pacific region.

“We’ve been closely tracking the events market in Singapore and are excited about the quality and breadth of events taking place. Following strong organic growth of our platform in-market, we’re pleased to deliver a localised offering that will help Singaporean event creators be even more successful and look forward to deepening our understanding of the local market to best serve their needs now, and into the future.”
