Rebrand marks next phase of integration between the companies
FEB. 1, 2017 – SAN FRANCISCO – StubHub (an eBay company) announced today that it has rebranded Ticketbis, the Spain-based ticket marketplace it acquired in 2016, to StubHub. This milestone, effective today, represents the latest step in the integration process between the two companies.
“StubHub is making solid progress in our goal to integrate Ticketbis into our platform, and to give consumers access to the world’s largest catalog of live events,” said Scott Cutler, president of StubHub. “This phase marks a significant step in introducing Ticketbis customers to the StubHub brand, and extending to them access to the performers, artists and athletes they love, no matter where they live, or where they want to travel.”
StubHub is the world’s largest online ticket marketplace, and sells 1.3 tickets per second, across more than 300,000 live events. With this phase of the StubHub-Ticketbis integration, consumers who use StubHub will benefit from websites in their local language and currency, as well as the safety and security offered by the StubHub FanProtect guarantee, which ensures that consumers can buy and sell confidently, knowing that StubHub guarantees their transaction and will make things right in the rare event that something goes wrong.
In future phases, StubHub expects to fully integrate the Ticketbis platform and catalog of events onto the StubHub platform, and to launch a global app to surface live events around the world, wherever StubHub is available.
