amiando, Europe‘s leading tool for online event registration and ticketing, significantly increased its sales growth in all markets and opened three new offices within the beginning of 2011 and now. Since its foundation in 2006, over 180,000 events have been organized worldwide with amiando, and more than 80,000 event organizers use the online event management tool.

Compared to last year’s figures, amiando realized an enormous sales growth of over 100% between January and May 2012. As before, the German market is still the company’s most important core market with twice as many sales. But most promising is the increased internationalization strategy in 2012; significantly more events were organized with amiando in the English-speaking and Asian markets compared to previous years. The volume of sales grew at over 135% in both the UK and Asia. amiando also enjoys a growing popularity in the US market, where a growth in sales of about 150% has been reached.

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. At the beginning of the year, another office was opened in London. amiando’s headquarters remain in Munich. The growth figures and the successful history confirm amiando’s corporate strategy. 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,”.
