ShowClix ticket sales reach $1bn

Ticketing technology supplier ShowClix has hit the $1bn benchmark in total ticket sales.

Patron Technology-owned ShowClix, which operates in 20 countries, is a full-service event technology provider of ticketing, marketing, and on-site operations to the live events industry.

The ticketing firm’s events include fandom conventions, museums, festivals, attractions, and consumer shows. Iconic brands such as New York Comic Con, Brooklyn Museum, The Daily Show, and PAX choose ShowClix to power their events.

“Reaching $1 billion in total sales processed through our platform is an incredible milestone, and I speak on behalf of our entire organisation when I say we’re only getting started,” said Brian Arnone, president and chief operating officer of ShowClix and CRO of Patron Technology.

“As our team and platform continue to expand, you’re only going to be hearing more about ShowClix and Patron Technology.”

The Pittsburgh-based company was first launched in 2007 as an event registration database. ShowClix now handles ticket sales, marketing, and on-site operations for conventions, museums, attractions, and festivals around the world.

The company also became part of Patron Technology in 2017, which served to expedite its growth.

“Becoming a flagship brand of Patron Technology has cemented our role as industry leaders,” Arnone said. “Now that we’re part of this larger family, we can’t wait to see where the future will take us.”

Earlier this month, ShowClix announced it had established a team in Toronto as it bids to expand its reach in Canada. 

It also appointed former Ticketmaster and Ticketfly executive Bruce Morrison to lead the team as general manager of ShowClix Canada.
