“By joining forces with Keith and AT Thirtyeight we plan to take a leadership position on the event experiences market, globally,” said Mike Reilly, EVP Global Sales and Business Development at Events.com. “Keith has a proven framework driving predictive success that we are looking to fill in the international markets. One of AT Thirtyeight’s owned event concepts, TheRelayRun®, is already using the Events.com platform. Keith has experience taking technology and event companies global and that’s exactly where Events.com is headed.”
“We joined Events.com for three main reasons: the technology, the focus on the entire experience space whether it’s a festival or sporting event and third, the culture and core values of the leadership and team,” said Keith Williams, Founder, AT Thirtyeight. “We also love that Events.com is 100% focused on the user first helping us seamlessly sell more tickets/registrations. Having spent some time inside the technology of Events.com, they are certainly thinking very differently about the event technology space, much like what you see with leading technology retailers like Amazon. It’s incredible to see the progress they have made in such a short time. The team has proven that they think without limits and they have the power to lead, collaborate and disrupt the space, which closely aligns with our mission.”
