Eventbrite has launched a localised ticketing platform in Hong Kong, which becomes one of the first territories in Asia to benefit from its ‘Publish to Facebook’ feature.

Eventbrite.hk will give customers in the region the option to purchase tickets in Hong Kong Dollars (HKD), through Facebook, curated local content and seamless native checkout.

The company’s launch in Hong Kong is further bolstered by a new partnership between Eventbrite and Louis Vuitton Hong Kong, which saw the firm power ticket sales for the fashion brand’s recent Objets Nomades showcase at Tai Kwun.

Eventbrite in Hong Kong has powered more than 34,000 events since the platform’s inception.

Phil Silverstone, general manager, Asia Pacific, said: “As a global city, Hong Kong punches well above its weight. From its vibrant foodie culture to its booming local arts and emerging music scenes, live experiences are a cornerstone of this dynamic, fast-paced city – and we’re excited to launch a platform that will power even more events for locals to enjoy.

“With features like payment processing in Hong Kong Dollars, curated local content, and the game-changing ability to sell tickets directly through Facebook, the localised platform was designed with Hong Kong event creators in mind, delivering a best-in-class experience that increases reach and drives ticket sales.”
