Festival Director Pty Ltd is an online ticketing and event management software business. Created by Shane and Karolina Russell, their platform helps event managers who want to collect revenue directly by avoiding third party ticketing companies and efficiently engage the right people to make their event a success.

The platform offers fully customisable ticketing and online application forms with simple website integration, allowing you to sell and operate under your own brand.

Shane’s and Karolina’s software was originally created to manage the challenges they faced at their own events, most critically having immediate access to revenue as sales occur. The system grew in popularity due to the logistical and financial challenges it has helped other event managers solve, culminating in sales of $16 million in ticket revenue since early 2016.

With version 2 of the new platform almost complete, the business will soon be ready to expand into new markets.
