Global ticketing and event tech platform Eventbrite announced a launch in Hong Kong which will bring about new features to local event creators. The launch was encouraged when Eventbrite partnered with Louis Vuitton to power ticket sales for the luxury brand’s recent Objets Nomades showcase at Tai Kwun. The news also follows Eventbrite’s launch in Singapore in February.

Since the platform’s global inception in 2006, more than 2.2 million tickets and 34,000 local events have been processed in Hong Kong. Currently, the city records over 6,500 local event creators.

The local platform will allow event creators to use its ‘Publish to Facebook’ feature, an integration allowing users to purchase tickets directly through Facebook.

Phil Silverstone, general manager, Asia Pacific, said: “With features like payment processing in HKD, curated local content, and the game-changing ability to sell tickets through Facebook, the localised platform was created with Hong Kong event creators in mind.”
