The music festival platform Festicket is bringing their operations to North America, and has just announced a new president to take over affairs in the U.S.
Festicket, which offers bookings, packages, and information for festival fans around the world, provides booking options, accommodations, and festival essentials to concertgoers. Since its inception, it has an annual sales growth of +146%, and has been ranked in the top 30 fastest growing companies in the UK by Sunday Times Tech Track.
The company has just appointed Lauren Pye as the North America president; Pye was the former Live Nation VP of Sales for General Admission division, Universe, and worked with eBay and StyleSeat previously. Pye joins Festicket’s new office in San Francisco, California. While the company currently operates in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Porto, it hopes to introduce Festicket to the North American market.
“Our new San Francisco office is in very capable hands with Lauren, who brings with her a wealth of experience in the ticketing and music industry and deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges we’re likely to face stateside,” Festicket CEO Zack Sabban said in a press release. “We’re delighted to have her on board as we look towards building exciting US partnerships.”
Pye said that she is looking forward to bringing Festicket’s “one-stop shop solution for ticket, accommodation and travel packages to the event industry in North America.”
“Festicket has built a strong reputation for itself by working with most of the major music festivals in Europe already and there’s so much potential in the North American market, where adding value is everything,” she said.
