...App to optimise ticket sales through mobile devices...

London, Tuesday 15 November 2011 - Ticketscript, European market leader in online, mobile and social ticketing solutions and Kawet a French start-up specialising in disruptive innovation for mobile apps, launch a plug & play mobile event app. The new mobile event app will allow event organisers to create and submit their own professional event app for event visitors to download.

Mobile event apps provide event organisers with the opportunity to optimise the total event experience for event visitors. Providing real-time information to event visitors, and the option to buy tickets through the app, will have a positive impact on the ticket sales. The integration with social media allows for live sharing of the event experience.

"Ticketscript's aim is to provide a do-it-yourself ticketing solution for everybody that organises events. The introduction of the mobile event app makes the latest mobile technologies available to all event organisers. No technical expertise is required, the app is extremely easy to update, implement and maintain." says Frans Jonker, Chief Executive Officer, ticketscript. "The mobile event app will help to boost ticket sales, enhance word of mouth promotion and it's a cost effective way of promoting the event."

The development of the app has been done in partnership with Kawet, a Paris based start-up specialising in disruptive innovation for mobile apps. Kawet created Cashew, a mobile app creation platform that allows anyone to build their own mobile app, without any technical skills. Ticketscript has taken the benefits of this technology and integrated it into the ticketscript dashboard allowing ticketscript customers to customise their mobile event app in minutes.

Ticketscript is currently enabling over 30,000 events throughout Europe to use their plug-and-play ticketing tool to sell tickets and promote events. To find out more about the mobile event app, visit ticketscript.com
