International event ticketing company, Evenbrite, has partnered with UK-based mobile messaging company, FireText, to enable event organisers to boost communication pre- and post-event.
By sending timely text messages prior to an event using the FireText platform, Eventbrite claims organisers will be able to increase attendance and enhance guest experience.
FireText is the only UK SMS platform to join forces with Eventbrite. The company provides a cloud-based SMS platform, which users can log into on any device to send and manage their messages.
“A simple text message can have a big impact to your event attendance and overall experience,” says Dan Parker, FireText Co-founder. “More and more businesses are realising the importance of effective communication and events are a great example for us.”
Parker claims text messages have an open rate of 98 per cent and are the perfect way to update guests on special announcements, confirm details or engage in conversation helping to boost attendance in the run-up to an event.
Mitch Colleran, Partnership Manager at Eventbrite, adds: “Eventbrite is focused on integrations that enhance the experience for organisers and attendees. That’s why this is a great addition to the Eventbrite platform because it means that organisers can easily reach people at key moments with the information they need.”
Eventbrite is the self-service ticketing company that enables event organisers to plan, promote and sell out any event. Eventbrite has sold over 115m tickets in over 179 countries and processed over US$1.5bn in gross ticket sales.
FireText was founded in September 2010 by Dan Parker and James Huff who have clients across the UK.
