SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 20, 2019
Gigwell, the first end-to-end booking management platform built exclusively for live entertainment bookings, has opened a European headquarters in Barcelona, Spain. Leveraging a global network of 35k+ artists and booking agents, the company's software tools are hyper-tailored to streamlining the workflow of a $200B industry that still predominantly operates using word documents and excel spreadsheets.
Since inception, Gigwell has recognized the demand for its services and the trajectory of the company as global, currently supporting artists and agencies in over 53 countries and 21 time zones. The Barcelona office will focus initially on customer support and sales, expanding Gigwell activities abroad and building a relationship with its European partners.
“While we are always looking to expand and push into new markets, the decision to have a base in Barcelona was a natural pull. The addition of our European operation will mean that we are available to our customers, both present and future, around the clock,” says Jeremie Habib, Founder and CEO. “Our geographic proximity allows for more face to face time with our clients and increased participation in the communities our product was created to support. It certainly helps that Barcelona is one of our favorite cities - rich in music, art, and diversity. We quickly fell in love and felt at home immediately.”
Gigwell’s Barcelona office will be responsible for supporting clients in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania. The Barcelona office officially opened the second week of July, and is comprised of a core team of legacy employees as well as new hires. “We wanted to be confident we had the right space selected and the right people in place to further represent our company culture and expand our mission,” says Antonio Sierra, Co-Founder and VP. “The EU team speaks English, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian and Romanian, each employee having lived and worked in multiple countries. We strongly believe in diversity of thought, opinion, taste, gender, and race, and believe our team exemplifies all that we stand for.”
Gigwell Barcelona is located in the historic Eixample district at a beautiful music industry workhub also housing The Bullitt Agency, Primes Agency, Grade Management, This And That Lab and Th.Ink Mgmt. Just steps away is La Sagrada Familia, the ultimate symbol of Barcelona and masterwork of the renowned architect Antoni Gaudí.
Gigwell is the leading end-to-end booking and tour management platform for live entertainment bookings (Musicians, DJ’s, Comedians, Public Speakers etc). The platform makes it easy to manage artist availability, streamline tour routing, send electronic contracts, build mobile tour itineraries and collect online payments. Today, the company works with hundreds of labels, agencies and speaker bureaus, managing bookings from club gigs to arena tours.
