Eventbrite and Facebook have teamed up to launch ‘Ticketing on Facebook’. Ticketing on Facebook allows anyone with a Facebook Page in the US to select ‘Create Tickets’ in the initial event setup in order to add paid or free tickets to their event.
Eventbrite’s partnership with Facebook is an initiative to make it easier for small and midsized businesses to distribute or sell tickets to events directly via the social network’s platform.
“Eventbrite and Facebook both share a passion to inspire connection and help bring people together. Past generations built their identities around their material possessions, but our newsfeeds today are filled with experiences, not the things we own,” said Pat Poels, SVP of Platform at Eventbrite. “700 million people use Facebook Events each month and partnering on this initiative is our effort to better serve the people responsible for bringing those events and gatherings to life—including small businesses and entrepreneurs whose core business is not throwing events.”
Tickets will be prominently displayed on the Facebook Event page, giving attendees the ability to indicate their interest in attending and to purchase paid tickets without having to leave Facebook.
“For the past several years, Facebook and Eventbrite have been partnering closely to help bring people together with the communities and live experiences that they love,” said Sue Young, Director of Product Management at Facebook. “Our partnership has enabled people to seamlessly and securely purchase tickets to events on Facebook. With this product, we are making it easier for event organizers to create and start selling tickets directly on Facebook by helping them complete the process without ever leaving the app.”
Eventbrite is a global ticketing and event technology platform that provides creators of events of all shapes and sizes with tools and resources to seamlessly plan, promote, and produce live experiences around the world.
