“I’m very proud of what the Ticket2Me team has accomplished so far and our 2019 performance reinforces my belief that the Philippines is ready and hungry for a fully-digital, paperless and future-focused event ticketing platform. We’ve seen older competitors adjust their practices and pricing as a result of our entry into the market and we’re seeing newer entrants come in as well—all proving that the potential for the event ticketing industry in the Philippines and the region remains quite substantial. We’re very excited for 2020 as we prepare new businesses including the restaging of Maxie the Musical in July and the opening of the Ticket2Me office in London later in the year,” said Ticket2Me founder and CEO Darwin Mariano.
