SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) — Event ticketing and technology platform Eventbrite announced its first expansion into Asian markets with the launch of offices in Singapore.
The localized platform at eventbrite.sg will cater to Singaporean event creators, providing event creation, marketing, and ticket services, as well as payment processing in local currency.
According to Eventbrite, the creation of a localized platform was fostered by strong growth in the region for the company, which has platformed more than 90,000 events in the country since it launched.
As well, Eventbrite said are already more than 7,000 Singaporean event creators currently using the platform and more than 4.9 million tickets have been transacted in the market.
“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,” Phil Silverstone, Eventbrite’s General Manager, Asia Pacific said.
“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 localized 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,” he added.
