amiando, Europe’s leading tool for online event registration and ticketing, has significantly increased its sales growth in all markets and opened three new offices since the beginning of 2011 (Update – February 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business under this website and we therefore deactivated the link). Since its foundation in 2006, over 180,000 events have been organized worldwide with amiando, with more than 80,000 event organisers using the online event management tool.
Compared to last year’s figures, amiando saw enormous sales growth of over 100% between January – May 2012. As before, the German market is still the company’s most important core market with twice as many sales. Most promising, however, is their increased internationalization strategy in 2012, as significantly more events were organized with amiando in English-speaking and Asian markets compared to previous years, with the sales volume growing over 135% in both the UK and Asia. amiando also enjoys a growing popularity in the US market, where sales have grown about 150%.
In order to offer the growing market in Asia, France, and UK a better on-site service, amiando opened two new offices in Hong Kong and Paris in 2011, and another office in London at the beginning of this year.
In total, amiando now has 75 employees and four offices worldwide and is a subsidiary company of XING AG, since December 2010. Felix Haas, CEO and co-founder of amiando, stated: “With XING as a parent company and our expertise in event ticketing, we can now implement unique products worldwide, which will be developed for our customers during the next months and years”.
