Ticket Tailor launches with Tixel: ethical ticketing from the first to the last ticket sold

Ticket Tailor launches with Tixel: ethical ticketing from the first to the last ticket sold

Ticket buyers and event organisers have often ended up with the short straw when it comes to the world of ticketing. Whether it’s exceedingly high fees or ticket scammers - the people who make events happen are left short-changed - while the big ticket companies (naming no names) walk away with exceedingly high profits and an unfair share of the pie.

Well, we’ve never thought that was quite right, and we’re always looking for new ways to make ticketing more fair for everyone involved. It’s one of the main reasons our pricing is so low compared to others in the industry. It’s also why we love the platform that Tixel has built. Their ambition is to make the resale of tickets as safe and secure as possible.
