Spanish ticketing aggregator Taquilla.com ended a successful 2018 with €35m ($39.8m/£30.7m) in gross ticket sales.

The Madrid-based company said it sold more than 1.3 million tickets over the 12-month period.

It also estimated that customers who bought bargain tickets for sports events, concerts and attractions through its portal saved around €6m in total.

Taquilla.com claims to have provided access to 97 per cent of all tickets available online and says it has the “most complete event inventory in Spain.”

David Fraga, Taquilla.com’s chief executive and founder, said: “Our team works every day to make access to cultural events easier. Arts and culture deserve to be promoted, and that is what we try to do”.

In 2019, Taquilla.com is looking to expand its reach to remote venues and to cultural events of all sizes, both in Spain and abroad.

Fraga added: “The upward trend in Taquilla.com’s results, together with our consolidated technology, will shape the bases for a future internationalisation of our business model to the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Italy.”
