Choice Group Asia, a media company with a focus on expatriate communities in Thailand, has added B-Concept Media Entertainment Group’s ticketing platform, TixTaQ, as its partner.
Choice Group owns expat community website ASEAN NOW and brands such as Inspire Bangkok, an e-magazine, and Pattaya.
Dan Cheeseman, Choice Group Asia managing director, commented that adding a ticketing component to Choice Group’s expat media platforms was “the next logical step”.
Cheeseman said: “Ticket sales are a logical next step to increase ticket sales across our channels and offer our users access to tickets for concerts and events. Choice Group Asia has with its platforms significant reach and is the leading expat media company.”
Choice Group’s Asia users will now be able to purchase tickets for concerts, events and shows on its platform. TixTaQ’s ticketing technology will provide analytics, data, marketing and various payment methods, including Apple Pay and Google Pay.
TixTaQ also offers Covid-proof ticketing and is integrated with social distancing, safe checking-in and out, and time-slot ticketing.
William Kuipers, B-Concept Media Entertainment Group’s chief executive, added: “Tapping into Choice Group’s audience gives us more opportunities to reach and understand this audience, offer events and perks, and increase their ticket buying experience.”
