Secondary ticketing platform Viagogo has appointed Global Venue Services (GVS) as strategic advisors in the UK.

GVS, a management consulting and investment services business, was launched in 2020 by chair Simon Bazalgette and chief executive Paul Fisher.

Bazalgette and Fisher have experience within the sports and music industries, including time at The Jockey Club, a racecourse group in the UK, as chairman and CEO respectively.

The Jockey Club sells around two million tickets for horse racing and music events each year, with Bazalgette and Fisher also boasting experience in developing white label ticketing platforms, music management and consultancy, lifestyle and consumer brand communications.

GVS offers strategic advisory, investment, interim management and other services to sports, leisure, media and entertainment investors and business owners, as well as venue owners and event promoters.

The collaboration will also include strategic communications support.

Bazalgette said: “We’re very pleased to partner with Viagogo to support their business. They connect millions of people around the world to live events through their platform and we look forward to using our experience and sector knowledge to support Viagogo’s strategic planning.”
