The French ticketing market in November is all about the Forum Billetterie and this year team Festicket made an especially fruitful trip from Nantes to Paris for the 2019 edition of the conference. Following a year of impressive growth and feature developments, Festicket were shortlisted as finalists for two awards:

Innovation Award
Recognising the breadth of new features delivered to the market over the past twelve months including Payment Plan,
Pay with Friends and the Festival Finder Spotify integration.

Partnership of the Year
Spotify partnership.
A partnership that allows customers to connect their Spotify and Festicket accounts to receive personalised festival recommendations based on their favourite artists and listening habits.

After well received finalist pitches on the evening of the awards ceremony, the team rounded up a trio of awards for the Festicket and Event Genius teams in November by walking away as the winner of the Partnership of the Year award.

“We now offer over 2,000 festivals on the platform, and we know first-hand how overwhelming it can be when trying to pick out the one to go to,” says Zack Sabban, CEO and co-founder of Festicket. “Our Festival Finder solves that problem by presenting a tailored list of festivals that best match your listening habits, including some under the radar gems that could soon become your new favourite festival destination. The aim with Spotify was always to make the experience better for the user and help the festivals we work with reach new audiences but it’s always amazing to be recognised by the industry for the hard work that makes these developments happen”.

The win represents a stamp of approval and recognition from the industry of the company as a real innovator, truly helping festival-goers connect with their dream events, whilst ensuring festivals - worldwide - reach new audiences, develop their brands and ultimately become more successful.
