Evvnt, Inc., an automated event listing and marketing platform, and Geotix Network, Inc., a national network of local partners that serve event creators using the Geotix SaaS ticketing software platform, announced today a strategic partnership that seamlessly integrates the creation, ticketing and promotion of events online.
“The Evvnt-Geotix partnership creates the first fully integrated event platform inclusive of event creation, ticketing and marketing in one easy to use workflow. The platform is available now and is being rolled out to the combined Evvnt and Geotix networks.”, said Richard Green, CEO of Evvnt. “Our mission is to give publishers access to a combined $18.2 billion market in 2020, while expanding the exposure and awareness of events for the event creators in their market”.
“Event calendars, listing sites and ticketing platforms are basically unchanged since they were originally introduced with their primary focus on helping ticket buyers purchase tickets. In addition to this, the Evvnt-Geotix partnership helps event creators sell tickets and increase their profitability through reduced marketing expense and increased event exposure.” said Jonathan Zakin, CEO of Geotix.
The Evvnt-Geotix combined network comprises almost 1,000 publishers domestically that support local event creators with increased local marketing and broader event exposure through event list syndication. The Evvnt-Geotix networked calendars expand event awareness and increases an event creator’s ticketing points of purchase.
“This Evvnt-Geotix platform and networked calendar can generate significant new revenue streams for publishers while providing real value added for event creators,” added Green. With Geotix ticketing integrated into the Evvnt event workflow, the platform completes the event creation and sales process, delivering ticket sales revenue and customer accountability for every dollar spent on promoting an event.
There is no setup or sign-in required. Simply create your event, include the types of tickets you want to sell, the ticket price and the number of tickets available for the event. The platform automatically creates your transactional ticket page and a unique ticketing URL (“Buy Tickets”) button that can be distributed across the Evvnt-Geotix Network providing a seamless customer experience.
