Jersey company extends its reach to an international audienceJersey-based online ticket admissions seller, 365Tickets, is hosting an ‘International Markets Conference’ in Jersey from 5-8 November 2013 to officially launch a global network of 365Tickets Licenced Partners.
365Tickets, which has primarily sold admission tickets for top attractions across the UK, has now established a global network of partners in 10 key markets across the world. Originating in the UK, the company now has partners in China, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain and USA, each of whom is developing localised versions of the 365Tickets sites. The partners will complete the Partnership Agreements with 365 Global Tickets at the ‘International Markets Conference’.
Each partner is in the process of creating, developing and managing a 365Tickets website in the local language, local currency and local payment systems for each market. The localised sites will enable each market’s consumers to search for and purchase tickets for attractions in their own country and for attractions in all the countries of the global network.
The new 365Tickets network will allow attractions in each country of the network to greatly extend their reach and ticket sales to international consumers. A localised 365Tickets website has already launched in France and Spain and the additional partners’ websites will all be fully live and operational by the first quarter of 2014.
The ‘International Markets Conference’ will outline and agree timescales, operations and the necessary technology to build the websites and payment systems in order to create the global network. There will also be an official signing of the global Partnership Agreements at 6pm on Wednesday 6 November.*
“Given our origins as a small start-up business in Jersey, we’re tremendously excited to be innovating and rolling out the first truly localised global attraction ticketing network,” says Andre Flambard, Managing Director of 365Tickets. “Our vision of introducing localised sites for local and international attractions for local customers is truly unique. We’re proud, as a Jersey company to be pioneers for this new development of the international attractions business,” he continued.
“365Tickets is a wonderful example of how what was once a very traditional business model, can be re-invented to meet the needs and aspirations of the modern world. The team at 365Tickets have achieved this by thinking outside of the box and by believing that anything can be achieved if you are determined to make it so. We at Jersey Business wish them every success for the future”, Andy Cook, Chief Executive Officer Jersey Business.
