Eventbrite is a website that allows event organizers to plan, set up ticket sales and promote events of any size and publicize them across Facebook, Twitter and other social-networking tools directly from the site's interface. It also enables attendees to find and purchase tickets to these events. Founded in 2006 by Kevin Hartz, Julia Hartz and Renaud Visage, Eventbrite is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. According to an article in the New York Times, the company is hoping to sell $400 million worth of tickets in 2011, almost double the amount sold in 2010. The Eventbrite website says it “is for anyone planning or attending an event. We empower event organizers to become more efficient and effective when bringing people together. And people everywhere are searching Eventbrite to discover great events that matter to them.” Eventbrite generates revenue by charging organizers a fee of 2.5% of the ticket price plus $0.99 cents per ticket sold. Eventbrite also allows event organizers to setup free events. Eventbrite does not charge any fee for free events.
