One year after purchasing Queue, Eventbrite has integrated the booking, operations and ticketing solution into its platform and created Eventbrite Venue, available to its customers through a single login and interface.
“Eventbrite Venue delivers unparalleled efficiencies via a mobile-optimized platform that consolidates and simplifies the process of booking artists, selling tickets, and settling at the end of the night. Early access to the product is available today,” according to a statement from the company.
Queue was created in 2012 by a team led by Greg Patterson and used early-on by venues like The Mohawk in Austin, Texas.
“We acquired Queue because it’s a superior product that solves a glaring pain point for venues, built by a team of expert engineers who had all moonlit as live music promoters, venue managers, and talent bookers,” said Julia Hartz, CEO and Co-Founder, Eventbrite. “Eventbrite Venue replaces up to five different systems with one single interface, specifically designed for event producers, enabling them to focus on delivering incredible live music experiences.”
Eventbrite Venue enables easy management of artist holds, organization of booking calendars, and storage of documents like riders, artist contracts and settlement reports in a collaborative space, in addition to seamless integration with Eventbrite’s ticketing, real-time analytics and reporting dashboards, marketing tools, and mobile box office and point-of-sale tools through Eventbrite Organizer.
“In the live music industry, back office inefficiencies eat directly into already tight profit margins, and distract venues from delivering experiences that keep fans coming back time and time again,” said Patterson who now serves as Director of Music and Live Events at Eventbrite.. “The business of running a successful live music venue is rife with tasks that take too much time, but fortunately, inefficiency is a problem technology can solve, and Eventbrite Venue does just that.”
