See Tickets has acquired Exhibition Architect (EA), the leading exhibitor manual and marketplace provider to the UK, Europe, and Middle East.
Already a market leader in full-service ticketing and trade registrations after acquiring LiveBuzz in 2021, the purchase of EA represents See Tickets’ continued growth within the exhibition and conference industry. The acquisition will result in significant benefits for See Tickets’ clients and event organisers alike.
Rob Wilmshurst, Global CEO at See Tickets said: “We are delighted to welcome EA into the business and add exhibitor manuals to our growing suite of products and services for the exhibition and conference industry. We are excited for the next stage of our expansion having already integrated many See and LiveBuzz services seamlessly at events this year.”
Ed Scutt of Exhibition Architect said: “I am thrilled to work with See Tickets and LiveBuzz. Both brands lead the way as premium providers in the industry and this – coupled with the fact we share so many customers - felt like the right fit for us. I see huge potential in the joined-up package we can offer and I’m excited by the strength this unification can bring to our industry”.
