Taronga Zoo announces Moshtix ticketing partnership

Taronga Zoo announces Moshtix ticketing partnership
August 28, 2018

The Taronga Conservation Society Australia has announced an exclusive event ticketing partnership for its major events with leading independent ticketing company, moshtix Pty Ltd.

Through the three-year partnership, moshtix will provide bespoke ticketing and marketing services for all of Taronga’s major events such as the Twilight at Taronga Concert Series, VIVID Sydney at Taronga Zoo and the New Year’s Eve at Taronga Zoo.

Following SeatGeek’s withdrawl from the Asia-Pacific event ticketing market, the announcement builds upon the existing relationship between the Society and moshtix, which has seen success since 2014, and will provide greater personalised support to ensure Taronga’s key events remain at the forefront of Sydney’s entertainment highlights.

Alex Emson, Head of Commercial Operations at Taronga Conservation Society Australia said he was delighted about the new partnership and what it will mean for visitors, commenting “the guest experience is central to our planning at Taronga, and this partnership with moshtix will enrich our understanding of our visitors’ needs and revolutionise how we deliver some of Sydney’s most popular events over the summer and winter months.”

Renowned for its tailored approach, moshtix provides the best possible service for its customers through its ‘make live easy’ philosophy, delivering a unique mix of innovation, commercially competitive terms, and bespoke value-add solutions.

Emson added “ensuring that Taronga’s guests are provided with greater value for money was a key factor in our decision-making and we are confident that this new partnership with moshtix will help us achieve this.”

More than just a fun day out, Taronga’s major events are crucial to supporting the organisation’s conservation initiatives. All proceeds from event ticket sales contribute to the Society’s ongoing work in wildlife conservation and research while offering people a chance to discover, share and experience live entertainment in a unique location.

In addition to providing event ticketing services, moshtix has demonstrated its shared commitment to Taronga’s vision of securing a shared future for wildlife and people, through its support of Taronga’s Common Wombat – one of Australia’s most iconic and beloved species.

The organisation is also dedicated to promoting environmental awareness internally and with its contractors and suppliers with regular operational reviews to ensure sustainability and minimise environmental impacts.

Welcoming the continuation of its relationship with Taronga, moshtix Chief Executive Harley Evans commented “we’re thrilled to have been selected as Taronga’s long-term partner of choice following their recent tender process.

“Through that process and since we started working with Taronga in 2014, there has been a strong alignment of values between our organisations, and it’s a real privilege to be able to play a role in supporting Taronga’s conservation initiatives through the delivery of major events. We’re particularly excited to showcase some new initiatives in the coming months that will enhance the experience for Taronga’s major event guests.”
