In the past few months, we’ve had several reasons to celebrate. In February, we sold our 50 millionth ticket. This spring, we took our iPad app, At The Door, on a whirlwind tour of the US. Last month, we welcomed Dave Morin, CEO of Path, to our Board of Directors. This time, however, the celebration is all about YOU.
Today we celebrate $1 billion in tickets sold, worldwide. To put this into perspective, it took Bill Gates 24 years to make his first billion, it took Donald Trump 26 years, but you got it done in just 6! When we set out to democratize ticketing in 2006, we focused on bringing simplicity and full-scale functionality to the masses but without our incredible organizers, we’d have nothing to celebrate. So whether you organized one event or one hundred, whether you’re in London, Ohio or London, England, or whether you taught a yoga class or hosted a thousand-person festival, we raise our glass to you!
To celebrate this momentous achievement, we’ve created a video for you to enjoy. On behalf of all of the Britelings, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. Thank you for organizing events, continuing to use Eventbrite and for painting your towns orange!
