Ticketing solutions provider Etix has acquired Michigan-based Star Tickets and Arizona-based TicketForce.

The two acquisitions are the latest in a series of companies acquired by the North Carolina firm, which is a cloud-based ticketing service provider, processing more than 50 million tickets per year in 40 countries.

“We continue to be strategic in pursuing growth acquisitions, and both TicketForce and Star Tickets are great fits within the Etix family,” said Etix chief executive and founder Travis Janovich.

Star Tickets President Jack Krasula, said Etix’s client services focus and manpower will be a “great asset.”

Star Tickets and TicketForce are Etix’s fourth and fifth acquisitions in the last two years, with other buyouts including Alabama-based ticketing technology company TicketBiscuit and Texas-based ticketing solutions provider ExtremeTix.

Janovich added: “We continue to aggressively invest in our technology and add key employees to ensure we meet and exceed our clients’ expectations. We look forward to carrying our strong momentum into 2020 and beyond.”

TicketForce co-founder and chief executive Lynne Smith said: “When we started TicketForce, we wanted to mesh our love of live events with our ability to deliver technology that clients and fans could use.

“We see this mirrored in how Etix approaches relationship-based service with smart, tech-based solutions. We look forward to working alongside the Etix team to continue to provide first-class service and technology to our clients.”
