Ticketmelon, the second largest ticketing platform in Thailand founded in 2015, has been providing technology solutions for events in Southeast Asia. The platform is known for backing around 2,000 events yearly in the region, including 1975, Garden Beats in Singapore, Vietnam Motor Show, and the LPGA Thailand Open, as well as famous festivals such as the Rolling Loud and Good Vibes Festival and concerts from artists and bands like the Arctic Monkeys.
Recently, Panupong Tejapaibul, CEO and Co-founder of Ticketmelon, announced plans to expand the platform in the Philippines. He said that Ticketmelon will provide innovative ticketing tools and live streaming services, powered by their investment on high-quality platforms and services. The expansion is not only limited to the Philippines, but also to local event organizers in Singapore, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
The technology provided by Ticketmelon can also be used by local teams to expand their network and reach. Ticketmelon started operating in the Philippines in 2019, with companies like Grab and Citibank. Chelsea Gloria, Ticketmelon’s Business Development Manager in the Philippines, said that the company was able to adapt even with the pandemic because the company values agility. They hosted virtual events like Young Philippines’ first-ever Virtual Conference: Amplify 2021, which supported streaming and ticket selling.
Gloria added they are looking at supporting local and international events, offering cashless payment solutions and improving the experience of event-goers in the Philippines. Ticketmelon will back different events, from festivals, concerts, to product launches, sports, and even corporate events. The platform also has seat mapping, apart from other live streaming services.
Tejapaibul said that the company aims to accomplish long-term goals that will level up the experience of the people participating in events. The expansion in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries will allow more event organizers to take advantage of Ticketmelon’s technology solutions and live streaming services, making events more accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
Ticketmelon’s expansion in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries will undoubtedly provide event organizers with innovative and high-quality tools to enhance the overall experience for event-goers, making the platform a go-to destination for ticketing and event management solutions.
