It started with a 150 guest event called Frocktails (Whitsundays) in 2009 when Kristen couldn’t find an online ticketing service for small events.
Without pre-sales, organisers didn’t know if the event was going to be successful.
Within 24 hours, Kristen devised the idea of community event ticketing websites and purchased 20 domain names for her future Local Tickets business.
Empowering Event Organisers to be successful and sustainable is the heart and soul of the business.
Simple and cost effective ticketing software solutions is the basis of our development as we know that our clients comprise of volunteers, committee members, office stars, organisers and promoters.
Sharing a love for local events, friends and colleagues Kristen Goldup and Jan Martin, formed Local Tickets in 2011.
Within 5 years the company has grown from one website to a national network of 49 websites.
Kristen and Jan personally travel all over Australia working with community groups and event organisers who need ticketing solutions to grow their events.
