The UK ticket insurance provider is eyeing expansion across eastern Europe after partnering with Polish insurance broker STBU
By Jon Chapple on 08 Jan 2019
Ticket insurance and protection leader TicketPlan has announced a strategic alliance with STBU, one of the largest insurance brokerages in Poland.
The alliance will allow both TicketPlan, a UK-based provider of ticket insurance cover to ticket agencies, venues and festivals, and STBU to launch new TicketPlan facilities in Poland and, potentially, throughout eastern Europe, says the company.
Graham Berg, CEO of the TicketPlan Group, explains: “Poland has a rapidly growing live event and ticketing market and an increasingly affluent customer base.
“We are all excited by the enormous potential of this opportunity”
“Cultural, regulatory and legal differences require a good, strong and reliable strategic partner and STBU were able to fulfil all of those requirements.
“TicketPlan has almost 20 years of experience within this sector and an internationally recognised brand, and STBU have provided local knowledge, expertise and experience. We are all excited by the enormous potential of this opportunity.”
Ticketplan launched in Italy in early 2017, adding to its client base in the UK, the Netherlands and Denmark.
