It’s only two months into 2018, but it’s already been a great start to the year for our Universe team who are stoked to be welcoming some incredible new clients on board. 

Late last year, Universe started working with Aussie promoting legends Hardware Presents, for their upcoming Babylon Music & Arts Festival as well as the hugely successful sell out events, elrow Melbourne and It’s A Fine Day NYE.

“We’ve had a seamless experience working with Universe and are really impressed with the customer service, Stripe payouts, and the scanning speed on the ticket scanning app,” said Hardware Group’s, General Manager, Damien Kease.  

The team are also very excited to have Viral Ventures on board. One of Australia’s fastest growing events companies, Viral Ventures create unique experiences across the country and trusts Universe to manage all their high-demand on-sales. Their brands include Ball Pit Party, Beyond Cinema, and Wizards Brunch. Check out their coverage in Broadsheet and their maiden Titanic voyage recap video

Hardware Presents and Viral Ventures join a string of other incredible clients such as In The Dark Events, Powercruise Promotions, Wildwon Projects, and Red Bull Australia, who have all chosen Universe as their preferred DIY ticketing solution here in Australia.

Universe is Ticketmaster’s DIY ticketing company that provides an innovative solution for all events, big or small. Our current Aussie clients love our payment plans feature, which allows buyers to pay for their order over several instalments; our Stripe integration, which settles funds from ticket sales daily instead of post-event; and our website integration, which allows hosts to promote their brand and sell tickets directly from their website with zero re-direct. Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to set up everything up on Universe and you can start selling tickets right away.

2018 will see Universe roll out more box office functionality and internationalization options, allowing clients to sell more tickets at-the-door and use Universe in Asian countries with full support for local currency and languages.
