Just like the most Hollywood of Hollywood blockbusters, the story of ticketscript has humble beginnings. Once upon a time, Frans and Ruben were cute childhood friends. Following a dramatic montage of life events, they met again around 2006. Between there and then, Frans had become an entrepreneur in hospitality, while Ruben had gotten into events (particularly techno events) and hosted the beatfreax platform.
At that point in time, ticketing was still very traditional – painful, even, with Ticketmaster at the helm. It was time to change that.
The first tickets sold by Frans and Ruben were sold on the beatfreax platform. Fast forward to now, and with five offices in five countries with over 100 employees, we are selling many, many, many more tickets. From out of nowhere we’ve managed to become Europe’s leading digital ticketing solution.
This website is our gift to you, Frans and Ruben – a celebration of the past decade and ticketscript's 10th birthday. This is a true milestone among milestones. We've collected images and messages from various members of the team – so relax, have a browse, and enjoy reflecting on this amazing achievement.
We are all incredibly proud to have been a part of this journey, and we look forward to the many years to come!
