COMPANY DETAILS

Eventbrite is a platform that allows event organizers to plan, promote, and sell tickets to events (event management) and publish them across Facebook, Twitter and other social-networking tools directly from the site’s interface.[1] It also enables attendees to find and purchase tickets to these experiences. Headquartered in San Francisco, Eventbrite opened their first international office in the UK in 2012. The company now has local offices in Nashville, London, Cork, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin, Melbourne, Mendoza, and São Paulo.[2] The company generates revenue by charging organizers a fee of 2.5% of the ticket price plus 99 cents per ticket sold, but does not charge any fee for free events.[2]

On June 9th, 2017 Eventbrite purchased Ticketfly from Pandora for $200 million.
