The Netherlands becomes country #4 for the ticket comparison site, which earlier this year raised £3m to support its expansion across the continent
By IQ on 10 Jul 2018
UK-based ticket search engine TickX today launched in the Netherlands, amid a period of expansion in mainland Europe.
The Dutch market is the fourth where TickX has a presence, and follows the hiring of CMO Paul Kirwin and a recent £3m investment round aimed at turning the platform into “global go-to destination for entertainment lovers across the world”, says the company.
Adding to its existing partnerships with the major international ticket sellers, including Ticketmaster and Eventbrite, TickX has partnered with regional ticket sellers in the Netherlands, including Tiqets and Nationale Theatrekassa, for the launch of TickX.nl.
“Now is the perfect time to launch in a new market, and the Netherlands is an ideal location”
Steve Pearce, TickX CEO, says: “We’ve spent the last few months growing our team and improving TickX to give our customers the best possible experience when searching for and buying tickets for events and attractions. Now is the perfect time to launch in a new market, and the Netherlands is an ideal location.
“The country has some of the most diverse and unique entertainment in the world and we’re delighted to bring TickX to the Netherlands, giving customers across the country the most transparent way to search for and buy the best-priced tickets in one place.”
The Dutch launch follows a commitment to launch TickX further across Europe. In addition to the Netherlands, the site is currently available to customers in the UK, Ireland and, most recently, Spain.
