As Gross Ticket Sales Pass $1B, Vendini Announces Expansion to Knoxville, TN With Focus on Music Festivals

The San Francisco Based Company Officially Opens New Office in Knoxville, TN to Focus on the Music Festival Space, Building out Vendini's Festival Offering and Strengthening Relationships in the Southeast

KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - Today, Vendini, the company that makes the business of live events simple, announced that it has officially opened a new branch of the company in Knoxville, TN. The new office will focus on serving music festivals and further establishing a presence in the Southeastern United States.

The Vendini Festival Solutions team works with festivals across the country to implement an all-in-one, end-to-end festival solution for the box office, along with access control, back-office logistics and more. The solution includes everything from ticketing, to marketing, reporting and logistical tools, to a complete RFID technology integration through wristbands.

"It's no secret that music festivals are a rapidly expanding market, and one that sits on the cutting edge of live event technology," said Robby Black, Vendini's Head of Festival Solutions. "The Knoxville office will allow our team to focus on festival acquisition in the area, build relationships with those festivals, support our current festivals and develop new products and tools aimed to make the business of music festivals easier."

In 2013, Vendini acquired Dataflow Enterprises and brought on then-CEO and founder, Robby Black, to springboard the company further into the music festival space. Vendini has since integrated the Dataflow software into its all-in-one solution, which includes the option to implement RFID technology, which allows festivals to have complete control of access control and speed up lines for patrons.

"We're incredibly excited to be expanding to Knoxville and establish an even bigger presence in the Southeast," said Vendini CEO and founder, Mark Tacchi. "This will allow us to be right in the backyard of some of the most popular festivals in the country. We're planning grow our festival team 400% by year end to support this initiative."
