2018 Ticketing In Review: Big Numbers, Big Prices, Big Changes

The year’s ticketing business moves, partnerships and mergers included TEG acquiring TicketWorld Down Under, Songkick partnering with FNAC, Vivendi buying Dutch ticketer Paylogic, Eventbrite acquiring Spanish ticketer Ticketea, DEAG increasing its stake in MyTicket in Germany, CTS Eventim acquiring Venuepoint in Scandinavia, and Ticketmaster acquiring blockchain company Upgraded.
Several companies launched blockchain solutions, all of which promise the elimination of ticketing fraud, with safe, secure and anonymous transactions and unprecedented insights into fan behavior. One new entrant into blockchain ticketing is Ticketfly co-founder and former TicketWeb president Dan Teree with his new company Big Neon.
The biggest ticketing news from Europe was Ticketmaster’s shutdown of its secondary marketplaces Seatwave and Get Me In, accompanied by the launch of an in-house, fan-to-fan and face-value resale platform in the U.K., to be rolled out in the rest of Europe next year.
