“Streets of San Francisco is a massive undertaking, with a devoted crowd of attendees who expect a lot from us on New Year’s Eve,” said Matt Seliga, Owner of Crawl San Francisco. “In the past, we’ve had to rely on multiple vendors to manage all of the logistics for this event. But this year, with Eventbrite, we can manage it all in one place. From ticket sales, to promotion, to the door entry process, Eventbrite is helping to make Streets of San Francisco the most successful New Year’s Eve event in San Francisco.”

“New Year’s Eve is the biggest night of the year to go out, and for revelers it’s all about gathering with friends and family to eat, drink and get excited for what’s ahead in the New Year. But for event organizers, it can often be stressful to make sure the event runs smoothly because so many attendees are relying on its success,” said Kevin Hartz, co-founder and CEO of Eventbrite. “As we enter this new decade, it’s rewarding to know that our revolutionary service is making the event process easier by orders of magnitude, creating more successful events where everyone has the time of their lives.”
