Ticket Arena’s Event Genius has been named as the official event technology partner of this year’s Leeds International Festival.

The firm will provide ticketing and access control solutions to the 2019 programme of events, which will take place from May 2-12.

The Leeds International Festival said it prides itself on tackling diverse and innovative topics such as sex robots, the future of space travel, empowering women in technology and artificial technology, among other things.

Event Genius’ head of marketing Alex Ogilvie, said: “We absolutely love LIF here at Event Genius. It’s a dream client to sign.

“Every year there are always several events on the programme that make me and my team’s ears prick up and having had a sneak peek at this year’s programme, the city is in for a treat. It’s amazing to be part of an event which is so well loved, locally and much further afield.

“As an independently-owned digital company based in the heart of Leeds, the festival has been on our doorstep since it started, and exposed our staff to all sorts of ideas and thoughts. So it’s with great pride and a sense of responsibility that we see our ticketing and access control services becomes an integral part of that same journey of discovery for our local community.”
