Self-service ticketing giant Eventbrite has announced a series of new partnerships, rolling out integrations with events guide The List, festival package provider Festicket, word-of-mouth ticket sales platform Verve (formerly StreetTeam) and brand ambassador software Ticketrunner.
The new services join Eventbrite’s existing network of partners, which includes Facebook, Spotify, Twickets, Bandsintown, Google, Songkick and Ents24, made possible by what the company calls its “open-platform approach” towards integration and distribution.
“Eventbrite is committed to providing an open platform that seamlessly connects with leading third-party services that help our organisers sell more tickets,” says Katie McPhee, head of music, arts and entertainment marketing for Eventbrite’s UK operation.

“Distribution and integration partners like The List, Festicket, Verve and Ticketrunner augment our world-class platform with innovative technology solutions, helping us solve the unique challenges of the 600,000+ event creators that use Eventbrite around the world each year.”
Festicket founder and CEO Zack Sabban (pictured) adds: “One of Festicket’s core missions has always been to take the hassle out of organising a music festival trip, including the purchasing of tickets, and booking of accommodation and travel. This new integration with Eventbrite gives festival promoters an easy way to build travel and accommodation packages that they can offer to their fans alongside an Eventbrite festival ticket, for a hassle-free trip.”
