ETix snaps up Interactive Ticketing

Online ticketing platform ETix has concluded its 2017 spending spree with the acquisition of software company Interactive Ticketing.

Seattle-based firm Interactive Ticketing has built a ticketing system around marketing tools, reporting features and wireless capabilities drawing a client base in amusement parks, consumer shows, fairs, expos and more.

“Interactive Ticketing was the next step in our plans for growing the company,” said ETix chief executive and founder Travis Janovich.

Based in North America, Etix is an independent ticketing company for state and county fairs, museums, music clubs, festivals, casinos and more. It also has offices in Austria, China, Germany, Holland and Japan.

ETix, which sells more than 55 million tickets in more than 40 countries each year, also acquired ExtremeTix and Ticket Biscuit in October.

Etix president Paxton Badham said: “We are excited to welcome Interactive Ticketing’s client base and employees to the Etix family and look forward to continuing the exceptional level of service that their clients are used to.”

Terry Howisey, Interactive Ticketing’s co-founder and chief finance officer, said: “We feel fortunate to be able to give our clients access to new tools and technology that will help them sell more tickets in 2018 and beyond.”
