Eventbrite Takes the Box Office Mobile With the Launch of Eventbrite Neon

Global Events Marketplace Takes Mobile Ticketing to the Next Level With Eventbrite Neon, an App that Provides Venues and Organizers With Real-Time Sales Data, On-Site Purchasing Capabilities, and Seamless Check-In Technology

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Eventbrite, the global ticketing and events marketplace, released their latest app today, Eventbrite Neon. Sophisticated and easy to use, the new app lets organizers and venues transform their mobile devices into an all-in-one solution to sell tickets onsite, check in attendees, and get deeper visibility into sales data in real time. The Eventbrite Neon app is free, optimized for iOS 8, and available now for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

Eventbrite Neon is especially valuable to venue operators, who now have the power to control traditional brick-and-mortar box office functions with a tap on their mobile devices, and set up additional box offices as needed onsite.

This app is the next step in bringing powerful event ticketing technology to every type of event organizer -- whether they're putting on small classes, big concerts, charity walks, and more. According to a recent Harris Survey, three in four Americans attended live events in the past year. The growing demand for events, coupled with the ubiquity of mobile, makes mobile innovation in the event management space more important than ever.

"Truly innovative companies look years ahead to predict the technology landscape and anticipate the needs of their customers. So, we created a sophisticated mobile solution to help customers grow and manage their events from anywhere," said VP of Product for Eventbrite, Laurent Sellier. "Mobile has always been a priority for us, but Eventbrite Neon wraps in the most crucial technology for event organizers and makes both accessible and delightful to use."

With Eventbrite Neon for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, event organizers can:

  • Monitor real-time ticket sales, trends and attendance from their event dashboard
  • Accept fast, secure payments for tickets and merchandise, and issue tickets on the spot
  • Get attendees into events faster with reliable ticket scanning and guest check-in
  • Process customer requests from anywhere, including ticket reissues, cancellations, and refunds

"Our overall operation depends on the ability to retrieve event analytics when we need them. These enhanced mobile capabilities now provide faster, easier access to customer data," said Sean McCoy, Ticketing Operations Manager of Tribeca Film Festival and Tribeca Cinemas. "We're very excited to incorporate these new features into our upcoming festival."

Now there are two Eventbrite mobile apps: The Eventbrite app, designed to help people discover great experiences near them, let organizers check them in, and view real-time ticket sales for their own events; and the Eventbrite Neon app, made for organizers and venues looking to access real-time data, sales capabilities, and check-in technology. The Eventbrite Neon app combines the functionality previously available in Eventbrite's At The Door and Entry Manager apps.
