StubHub Acquires Zvents
By: Richard Brewer-Hay
StubHub has acquired Zvents, a platform for local event discovery and promotion, boasting a catalog of over 3 million events that are generated from a network of 140,000+ local marketers and promoters.
Founded in 2005, Zvents currently attracts 14 million monthly unique visitors via its various channels, including Zvents.com and its media partner network of over 300. Exact terms of the deal were not disclosed.
StubHub currently offers around 30,000 events for discovery whereas Zvents users have access to 600,000 events on any given day and over 3 million during the course of a calendar year. Essentially, with this new acquisition (and after integration), StubHub users will eventually have access to 100x more events than the present.
I look forward to catching up more with both teams when I’m back in the US to chat about the joint efforts. For now, I’ll just sign off with a hearty welcome aboard to everyone at Zvents!
