Thanks a (Few) Million: Eventbrite Hits the 50 Million Tickets Mark

Take this, and multiply it by 50,000,000.

Holy bananas, readers! We did it! Well, really, you did it.

Since Kevin and Julia Hartz and Renaud Visage founded the company back in 2006 in a Ramen-filled conference room, we have issued a dazzling 50 million tickets on Eventbrite.

That’s a lot of tickets! 50 million tickets equals:

  • 100,000 reams of paper (so it’s a good thing we have the Eventbrite mobile app for paperless ticketing!)
  • 1,041,666.7 yards of 2-D barcodes
  • 119,047.6 hours (straight) of check-ins on our Entry Manager app

So, from our orange offices in San Francisco and London, all the Britelings want to say thank you. If we tried to say 50 million ‘thank yous,’ each Briteling would have to say it about 250,000 times…so instead we’ll focus on delivering the best ticking platform around, while you all focus on getting out there, and bringing people together.

Here’s to the next 50 million!
