San Francisco, Calif. - May 1, 2012 - Today the Republican National Committee (RNC) launched the GOP Social Victory Center (SVC), a groundbreaking application for grassroots supporters and volunteers, which leverages Eventbrite’s powerful event organization, promotion, and ticketing tools.
These tools will empower users with the technology to create, plan, and manage their own grassroots-inspired campaign events ahead of the 2012 election. And because the RNC fully integrated the Eventbrite platform into the SVC Facebook application, users will enjoy a convenient and seamless experience.
“With the GOP Social Victory Center, the RNC is on the cutting edge of campaign technology,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “We are harnessing the reach and power of Eventbrite to build grassroots support and engage voters. The SVC breaks down geographic barriers, connects users with a nationwide grassroots network, and makes activism and volunteering easier than ever.”
This nation-wide use of Eventbrite platform exemplifies how political campaigns and their supporters are leveraging Eventbrite’s event management tools. From local rallies, to State fundraising dinners, Eventbrite has seen a surge in political activity—on both sides of the aisle. In 2012 alone, over 106,000 tickets have been issued for political events created on Eventbrite, supporting candidates for national, state and local office.
Campaign managers understand that candidates must use technology more deeply than ever before in order to reach voters in 2012. Eventbrite allows them to do that, while also using events as an opportunity to build support for campaigns and causes.
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.
