Leading global online attractions ticket distributor, 365Tickets, has announced the launch of 365Tickets Italia to serve the growing market in Italy.
365Tickets has enjoyed a successful 2018 so far. Last month the company announced a new partnership with the Revolut global money app, Europe’s fastest growing fin-tech start-up. In May 365Tickets signed an online distribution contract with Plopsa Group.
The company, which has successful domains operating in multiple territories: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, UK, USA and Spain, has now expanded its portfolio in the Italian market with a fully localised domain, 365tickets.it.
Father and son, Daniel and Julian Geymonat, together with their Turin based team, bring a wealth of experience in e-commerce and technical system development.
A dedicated ticketing platform for the Italian attractions market
Commenting on the announcement, Tim De Gruchy, Managing Director of 365 Global Tickets Limited said, “In 2017 we saw an increase in Italian IP orders and e-commerce conversions on our network of 365Tickets websites, booking products like Tower of London, Disneyland Paris, Universal Studios Hollywood, Europa Park and local attraction, Gardaland. With the numbers evaluated it made perfect sense to look to create a fully localised Italian domain, supporting local suppliers and customers.
“Our initial conversations with Daniel, Julian and the team were very positive and it was agreed that first phase development should be undertaken. Quickly it became apparent that they had the required skills to deliver real benefits for the three identified markets: International Products to Domestic audience; Domestic Products to the Domestic audience and also Domestic Products to an International audience – with products being added on a daily basis.
“Sales in the first month of trading have been stronger than forecasted with International product sales accounting for 64% of trading. The future is particularly bright for the Italian domain with such rich and world-renowned attractions – the Colosseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa – and a truly absorbing heritage.
“The next step to is the creation of bespoke and tailor-made product combinations to benefit identified markets – very much the theme of our international 365 Global Tickets Conference 2018.”
Based in the Innovation Center of Turin, 365Tickets Italia aims to become the online distributor for the Italian market providing exceptional offers, excellent supplier and customer service to deliver admissions to attractions worldwide.
Daniel Geymonet says that he saw the demand for a platform like 365Tickets with the large number of Italians who travel and the double digit growth of Italian e-commerce. He was persuaded to work with 365Tickets because of the company can meet the demands of the market whilst retaining a focus on customers. 365Tickets aims to carry out the process of selling tickets online ‘extraordinarily well’ and to retain customers through exceptional service. The extensive range of global products encourages frequent revisits and recommendations.
In terms of plans for the first year, Geymonet says that 365Tickets Italia wants to “be known by every Italian interested in buying online tickets so that they can evaluate our offers and services.”
He adds that the platform aims to attract even more suppliers of Italian products, noting that “one point of contact opens up multiple online distribution channels, fully localised to build international sales. We’re geared up to support local suppliers to amplify the marketing of their venues and attractions that present this country wonderfully.”
