Queue-it expands global footprint to growing Asia-Pacific market

Queue-it expands global footprint to growing Asia-Pacific market
April 10, 2019

Following strong growth in the Asia-Pacific region, Queue-it has announced the opening of an office in Sydney, positioning the venture’s global customer base with business support across all time zones.

Queue-it, a virtual waiting room SaaS startup, is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, with an additional office in Minneapolis, USA.

Despite not having a local presence, the company has increased its Asia-Pacific business in recent years, and to fill this strategic gap it has contracted experienced ticketing technology professional Ian English to assist its Asia-Pacific presence.

The move brings Queue-it support closer to the growing Asia-Pacific market and will solidify contacts in the region that Ian brings as well.

English has decades of experience in the ticketing sector, having served as Managing Director and Chief Executive Asia for Tickets.com, and most recently sold TicketServ - which he founded in 2009 -to SeatGeek in 2017.

He now operates as an independent consultant under his company, Staij Services.

Commenting on his new role, English stated “after having used Queue-it in many ticketing onsales with my own companies, I know the immense value a virtual waiting room brings to the table. I look forward to assisting Queue-it in the region and welcome the opportunity to help APAC companies, both in ticketing and ecommerce, run successful sales with such a great offering."
