San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2012
New Zealand’s largest events discovery, marketing and ticketing platform has launched in the United States at eventfinda.com. The company has been planning on launching in the US for several years, and is a significant milestone in the company’s history.
“Launching Eventfinda in the United States is a big deal for us” said Michael Turner, Eventfinda’s Founder. “No-one else has a platform that integrates event discovery for consumers with event marketing and ticketing for promoters like we do. It what makes us unique.
"We’re the best at providing a great event discovery experience, and connecting with the events and live entertainment sector. If we can execute as well in the US as we have already proven we can do in New Zealand, Europe and Australia, we’ll have a fighting chance of being successful.”
"Eventfinda is perfectly positioned to be the events discovery website of choice for both locals wanting to know what’s on in their own city, as well as tourists looking to plan their itinerary.
"The website has been launched with a light footprint, and the company is growing rapidly. Headcount has increased from eight to 14 employees so far this year.
"Eventfinda is preparing for a funding round to fuel expansion into the US market.
“We believe it is a better strategy to launch first, and then seek expansion funding, rather than try and raise investment before we launch our platform” said Turner. “It lends credibility by demonstrating we’re here to stay.”
We are changing the way people discover and share events. Eventfinda covers all event genres, from concerts to theatre, sports and festivals, making event discovery for consumers easy and engaging.
Our platform makes it easy for event promoters, venues and artists to market their events to consumers. Anyone can list their event for free, and event information is syndicated to a wide range of media partners. Event owners can manage their own ticketing with complete control over pricing and promotion, real-time financial reporting, and state of the art at-the-door validation tools.
