Inroads into e-ticketing
Ticketfun, an online ticket booking and social event discovery platform announced the launch of its website.
People across the gulf region can now discover events and activities in Qatar as well as buy tickets through Ticketfun, CEO Hamad Al Rewaily said. Three years since he pitched the idea at Al Fikra Business Plan Competition and was selected to be part of the Digital Incubation Center at ictQATAR, Ticketfun launched this month, announcing its partnership with Qatar National Bank. All transactions through the website, including advance reservation to events and ticket purchases will be through the QNB's secure payment gateway system. Ticketfun is expected to announce its collaboration with several Qatar-based event organisers and cinemas soon and will begin selling tickets online, starting this summer.
