The Dutch secondary ticketing platform is making its first foray into the Portuguese market by partnering with renowned festival Boom
By IQ on 06 May 2021
Amsterdam-based resale platform TicketSwap has announced a partnership with long-running festival, Boom.
The partnership includes integration with their ticketing company Weezevent, which allows TicketSwap to void a sold ticket and instead issue new tickets to buyers.
This Secure Swap integration ensures that fans can buy and sell quickly and easily, while providing visibility to the festival organiser.
The partnership with Boom marks TicketSwap’s first foray into Portugal and follows recent launches in Italy and Brazil.
“It’s great to have such a prominent partner for Portugal as we continue on our mission to be the experience platform that every fan loves”
“We are delighted to be working with Boom Festival,” says TicketSwap CEO Hans Ober. “The event is spectacular and people travel from all over the world to be there. We are very pleased to provide a safe and transparent way for fans to sell their tickets at a fair price.”
“TicketSwap have been expanding at a pace. We have set up an office in Brazil, launched in Italy, and we’re hiring our first local staff in the UK, Sweden, and Germany. It’s great to have such a prominent partner for Portugal as we continue on our mission to be the experience platform that every fan loves.”
The 25th edition of Boom festival will take place on 22–29th June 2022.
The event, which takes place every two years, has been ‘exceptionally popular’ on TicketSwap, with nearly 4,000 people registering for tickets and almost 500 tickets sold in the first three days.
