Independent ticketing company See Tickets has acquired exhibitor manual and marketplace provider, Exhibition Architect (EA). 

The acquisition confirms See Tickets’ ambitions in the exhibition and conference industry, after acquiring LiveBuzz, a provider of services to the UK exhibition sector including event registration, event websites and event staffing, in October last year. 

Rob Wilmshurst, global chief executive at See Tickets, said: “We are delighted to welcome EA into the business and add exhibitor manuals to our growing suite of products and services for the exhibition and conference industry. 

“We are excited for the next stage of our expansion having already integrated many See and LiveBuzz services seamlessly at events this year.”

Exhibition Architect’s Ed Scutt added: “I am thrilled to work with See Tickets and LiveBuzz. Both brands lead the way as premium providers in the industry and this – coupled with the fact we share so many customers – felt like the right fit for us. 

“I see huge potential in the joined-up package we can offer and I’m excited by the strength this unification can bring to our industry.”
