Weezevent, the ticketing solutions company, will open a UK office in Manchester. Already operating in France and Canada, the operations will be headed up by Benjamin Garner, who previously worked at Ticketmaster UK.

Pierre Henri-Deballon and Sebastien Tonglet, two former events organisers, who wanted to overcome the challenges they faced on their events, founded Weezevent in 2008 with the ambition to create solutions for problems they faced by developing innovative event specific technologies.

The system was developed with help from more than 100 events organisers and feedback from customers, and the cashless solution helps the point of sale process, reducing queues and increasing payment security for fans.

Pierre-Henri Deballon, CEO and co-founder of Weezevent comments: “The UK is an incredible market and we’ve decided to invest in an outstanding team to offer our great services to events here. We believe that our world-class technology, combined with local experts will help us offer the best technologies to our UK clients.”
