After signing a string of high profile deals at the start of 2021, Tim Glenane joins Festicket as the business continues to roll out a new end-to-end ticketing, travel and cashless payments offering in Event Genius down under.

We're excited to reveal that we are expanding our operations in Australia with new talent, an increased presence in the country, boosted investment and a number of new exclusive ticketing deals, cementing ourselves as one of the most forward-thinking new players in the country’s ticketing, tech and festival space. 

The latest round of exclusive ticketing partnerships include the debut Gold Coast sell out festival Promiseland and The Grass Is Greener (with events in both Cairns and on the Gold Coast and pictured here), in addition to previous deals with Lost Paradise, Wildlands and For the Love earlier in the year.

These new signings are just a part of our continued expansion into the region alongside heavy investment in new talent, resources, local tech partnerships (more to come on those soon!) and an increased physical presence. Together, all of this gives us a great platform from which to roll out of our end-to-end ticketing, access control, cashless, travel and marketing offering to Australia and the wider APAC region.

After spending time with both Eventbrite and Ticketek, Tim Glenane has joined Sam Owens (Head of Business Development, APAC) as our new Regional Operations Manager and will lead on all things operations in APAC, bringing vast experience and knowledge of the live events and festival industries to the team.

Joining Tim will be a new team of local Account Managers and timezone specific customer support staff to help elevate the B2C fan experience in the region.

Speaking about the news, Sam Owens, Head of Business Development, APAC at Festicket and Event Genius, commented: “This is a hugely exciting time at Festicket as we continue to ramp up our operations in Australia and roll out our new end-to-end Event Genius offering. Since the start of the year, it’s been amazing to have so many high profile festivals and events put their faith in us, so much so that we’re now able to invest significantly in our team, resources, products and services for Australia and the wider APAC region."

"I’m really pleased to be welcoming Tim and the other new starters to the team, who - as we continue to grow - will be integral in providing the level of service we pride ourselves on at Festicket.”
