Amsterdam-based Tiqets.com receives $1 million to accelerate its global expansion

A consortium of investors has invested a total amount of $1 million in Amsterdam-based Tiqets.com, to ensure and accelerate its global ambitions.

Tiqets.com was founded in 2013 with the mission to offer a great entertainment experience to travellers worldwide. Tiqets.com enables travel companies to offer their customers tickets for tours, theater shows, attractions, sporting events, concerts and museums across multiple touchpoints.

Distribution partners like airlines, hotel chains and OTA’s integrate the direct bookable content by means of an API, emails, co-branded website and widgets. This approach is unique in the travel industry, offering these tickets directly to consumers through its website.

To accelerate its global growth, Tiqets.com will mainly invest in product development and mobile technology. This will enable the startup to serve its global partners in a faster and m ore effective way, as well as give its customers the perfect experience as they book tickets and enter a venue.

The investment also helps Tiqets.com to develop its position as a worldwide market leader in the travel entertainment industry, putting a strong emphasis on direct bookable and mobile-based redeemable tickets in 2015.

Last year, Tiqets.com saw exponential growth in all areas, closing partnerships with more than 100 ticket partners and more than 40 national and international distribution partners. In September 2014, the organisation successfully launched its own B2C website, www.tiqets.com, which has resulted in a rapidly growing base of satisfied customers worldwide. Currently the organisation consists of 20 employees, of which a team of 10 product and software developers.
