Whitehorse, Yukon (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
A free resource that makes it possible to sell tickets and promote events in both of the official languages of Canada is growing in popularity with event producers in every province. Brown Paper Tickets, offering both event ticketing and 24/7 phone support in both English and French, will reach out to Yukon businesses, theatres and event producers at Contact Ouest in Whitehorse this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 20-23.
From Vancouver to Quebec, Canadian business owners and live event producers are using the service to build new customer bases and revenue streams from both Francophone and English-speaking prospects. The annual Festival du Bois, the Place Des Arts and Le Centre Culturel Francophone de Vancouver in British Columbia, and sporting events, such as roller derby, in every other province of Canada are also choosing Brown Paper Tickets over other services to avoid high ticketing fees for their fans.
"The launch of our French-language services is an extension of our commitment to offer the best tools and services to as many people as possible," said Brown Paper Tickets Francophone community outreach manager, Caroline Planque. "Live events define a community. We're not simply expanding our services. We're offering the chance for our diverse communities and cultures to learn about and enjoy each other."
These services are not limited to the French-speaking community in Canada. Brown Paper Tickets is available globally. Brown Paper Tickets offers ticketing, event registration and 24/7 live phone support for event producers and their ticket buyers in English, French and Spanish, opening the door to cross-cultural events and promotions.
