Multipurpose event venue Tobacco Dock has partnered with ticketing and payment company TicketCo, giving all its clients access to the TicketCo platform
By Anna Grace on 08 Jan 2019
Attendees of events held in Tobacco Dock, a grade-one listed building and premier events venue in London, can now buy tickets and make event payments using TicketCo technology.
TicketCo’s mobile platform offers users an easy-to-use ticketing solution, as well as giving venues the opportunity to promote offers on food, drink and merchandise.
The Norwegian ticketing and events payment company launched in the UK early last year. Tobacco Dock is the latest addition to the company’s UK partners, which include Junkyard Golf Club and Woking Football Club.
“It’s a great step forward for TicketCo in the UK to be affiliated with such a massive player,” says TicketCo UK country manager, David Kenny. “We are very confident that the organisers Tobacco Dock attract will see the upside of utilising our future-proof ticketing and payments solution.”

The TicketCo system issues users a single QR code which serves as the only ticket needed for any event attended through the platform. This simple, unified approach is especially compatible with Tobacco Dock, a venue which hosts over 190 events annually across 50+ event spaces, says TicketCo.
The commercial director of Tobacco Dock, Jonathan Read, highlights this compatibility: “We’re very much looking forward to working with TicketCo. Their entrepreneurial and innovative outlook mirrors our own, making them the perfect fit for Tobacco Dock and its clients.”
