ASEAN Rice Bowl Startup Awards 2019 Best Fintech and Philippine Startup of the Year nominee Ticket2Me announced today that it has secured a ground-breaking partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).
“The CCP is very excited to have Ticket2Me on board as one of our ticketing platforms. By partnering with Ticket2Me and taking advantage of its innovative technology, the CCP enables and empowers audiences from all walks of life to get easier online access to its offerings. The technology allows anyone, even those without credit cards, to buy tickets to CCP events anytime, anywhere, using only their smartphones. Ticket2Me has also developed our very own CCP app which audiences can download and use for buying tickets, registering to events and festivals, and getting updates on CCP shows and special events. We want CCP patrons and art lovers to have a convenient and seamless way of purchasing tickets and to make this part of the whole enjoyable viewing experience at the CCP. With this partnership with Ticket2Me, the CCP enables the access of a broader public to experience the ‘live’ arts,” said CCP Vice President and Artistic Director Chris Millado.
Combining their Filipino-made event ticketing technology with the CCP's 50 years of leadership and experience in Philippine arts and culture, they worked together to develop the official CCP mobile apps now available from both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Ticket buyers may now conveniently and securely purchase tickets for their favorite CCP shows and events through the CCP mobile apps, including the extremely popular and highly prestigious 2019 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival starting on August 2. The CCP will also be using the same platform for ticket scanning, ticket inventory management, and audience engagement purposes.
"We're very excited at this opportunity to be able to provide the Cultural Center of the Philippines with a modern, secure, and efficient ticketing platform that can conveniently serve Filipinos wherever they are in the world. The development of the CCP mobile apps is evidence that the Philippines remains a force to be reckoned with not just in arts and culture but also in technology, particularly event ticketing," said Ticket2Me Founder and CEO Darwin Mariano.
To date, Ticket2Me has already hosted over 2,000 live events and has helped over 21,000 registered users. Ticket2Me is the country’s first fully digital and fastest growing ticketing and event technology company with more than 11,000 cash payment outlets throughout the Philippines. Event organizers, venues, and ticket buyers may access the platform and buy tickets via www.ticket2me.net and the Ticket2Me iOS and Android apps.
