Austin-based Ticketbud has launched a Keep it Local initiative giving organisers in Texas access to discounted rates for its online ticketing services.

The firm caters to a wide range of Texas events and festivals, from Trail of Lights, to corporate events during SXSW, food festivals such as the Far East Fest, pop-up events and art installations, as well as working with non-profit and student organisations.

Meredith Smith, Ticketbud director of operations, said: “As an Austin company, Ticketbud wants to maintain a close connection to the local community, organisations and event organisers. There are many great local businesses, start-ups, festivals and events we want to partner with.

“We’ve recently updated our platform and decided to offer a special ‘Keep It Local’ rate to any locals wanting to partner with Ticketbud. No lock-in contracts, just give us a try.

“We’re offering a 20 per cent discount on our already highly competitive rate, for the remainder of 2019. For those locals who have tried us in the past, check out our new upgraded platform.”
