Vendini Continues Blockbuster Growth With Record Year(January 16, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/12 -- In 2011, Vendini held on to its number one ranking as the fastest growing company in the ticketing industry, winning 402 new venues for the year and adding 16 new concert venues in the fourth quarter alone.
In addition to strong customer and revenue growth, Vendini finished the year having debuted a number of leading edge mobile ticketing options, introducing a new application for the Android and improvements on its Apple app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Vendini's mobile ticketing solutions continue to be a major differentiator for the company, attracting new customers looking for flexible ticketing solutions.
"In terms of adding customers and innovating new technology, we've certainly experienced a phenomenal year," said Mark Tacchi, Vendini CEO and Founder. "We've become the leading cloud-based ticketing company in the industry, and a growing number of concert, sporting arenas, and performing arts venues are finding the flexible ticketing solutions we provide to be exactly what they need."
New Jersey's South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC), Paramount Theatre in Illinois, and The O'Shaughnessy at Saint Catherine University in Minnesota are just a few of the many large performing arts organizations that made the move to Vendini's modern cloud-based ticketing system in 2011.
And, while Vendini continues to dominate the ticketing industry in Performing Arts, its presence in concerts, sports and other events is also quickly increasing. Both the Silverdome and the International Basketball League's Los Angeles Lightning signed on with Vendini in 2011, as did The University of Toronto Athletics. Vendini was also selected to power ticketing for the renowned AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament in California. Vendini saw equal success in concert ticketing with the signing of Forecastle 2012, celebrating its tenth anniversary, music festival happening July 13-15 at Louisville's Waterfront Park.
"We looked very carefully for a ticketing solution that would provide our customers with the best ticketing experience possible," says Carolyn Espinoza, Controller & Assistant General Manager for the Silverdome. "Vendini proved that they can meet our high standards when it comes to ensuring our events meet our patrons' expectations, and I love that Vendini is receptive to our needs as a company and provides us with great customer service."
