San Francisco, Calif. - June 22, 2011 - Eventbrite announced today the release of Eventbrite At The Door, a groundbreaking iPad application that makes it easier than ever before to issue tickets and collect payments, in any location. As part of the company's continued focus on addressing the pains of event organizers and their attendees, Eventbrite has released this application to displace the cash box - and to eliminate the long line at the ATM beside it. Because it can accept both cash and credit payments, Eventbrite At The Door makes selling tickets on-site flexible and fast. And because the iPad makes it portable, this application frees the box office to move wherever an organizer needs it most.
An optimal solution for events of all sizes and types, Eventbrite At The Door will revolutionize industry standards by drawing upon new technology and customer-focused design to offer event organizers an elegant, yet reliable solution that is not dependent on clunky hardware, costly installations and training, or restrictive contracts. This application turns an off-the-shelf consumer iPad into a robust, sophisticated - but still simple - point of sale solution.
In the five years since its founding, Eventbrite has remained at the forefront of the ticketing industry by applying cutting-edge technology to solve the problems event organizers face. "At Eventbrite, our overarching goal is empowering event organizers with the best technology available," explains CEO and Co-Founder Kevin Hartz. "Eventbrite At The Door extends the power of Eventbrite into the physical world, turning any space into a venue, and giving greater flexibility to the people who create shared live experiences."
Eventbrite enables people all over the world to plan, promote, and sell out any event. And Eventbrite makes it easy for everyone to discover events, and to share the events they are attending with the people they know. In this way, Eventbrite brings communities together by encouraging people to connect through live experiences. Eventbrite's investors include Tiger Global, Sequoia Capital, DAG Ventures, and Tenaya Capital. Learn more at www.eventbrite.com.
