TEG announces major Malaysian ticketing acquisition
July 3, 2017

Ticketing, live entertainment and data analytics company TEG has today announced the acquisition of Malaysia’s top ticketing company, TicketCharge.

Founded in 1991, TicketCharge is the leading live event ticketing provider for events of all sizes in Malaysia, offering a full suite of ticketing and marketing services.

As part of the acquisition, TEG has established a new Asian division based in Singapore to focus on the strong growth in live entertainment in the region. The office will provide ticketing services as well as procure and deliver leading live content throughout Asia.

The TicketCharge acquisition complements soon to be announced partnerships in Asia involving TEG’s ticketing software licensing business Softix, which currently has clients in 20 countries.

TEG Chief Executive Geoff Jones said today’s announcements demonstrate the focus and commitment to expand the business into multiple Asian markets.

Jones explained “TEG is the largest diversified entertainment company in Asia Pacific and we have a track record and accumulated expertise in the entertainment industry.

“We see huge opportunities in many offshore markets and our strategy puts us on course to becoming a truly international promoter and service producer.”

With offices in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, TicketCharge provides a full suite of ticketing via a network of distribution outlets, online and call centre channels.

TicketCharge has ticketed major events in Malaysia, including the XXI South-East Asian Games, Jay Chou, Big Bang, Guns N Roses, Disney On Ice, Vanessa-Mae and Aaron Kwok Live, just to name a few. The company also handles ticketing for local and international arts and theatre productions, such as CATS, Fame, Chang & Eng, The Musical, Madame Butterfly Opera and Thousand Arms Thousand Eyes.
