Weezevent, a French start-up founded in April 2008, has quickly become the French leader in technological solutions for event organisers. As a pioneer in self-service ticketing in France with its Software as a Service (SaaS) online software, Weezevent interconnected solutions of ticketing, access control, payment CRM and 3D seat modelling are now used by more than 15,000 event organisers across the globe.

Weezevent’s success is based on integrated and customisable solutions in the form of connected white label tools (including software, bracelets, and payment terminals) that are easy to use, secure and robust, and able to absorb extremely high load increases. With a highly scalable business model strong on innovation and operational performance, Weezevent was able to establish itself in France and successfully initiate its international expansion, particularly through the acquisition of its Belgian counterpart Playpass in 2020.
Weezevent is now present in over 30 countries and employs 150 employees in six offices in Paris, Antwerp, Lausanne, Madrid, Montreal and London.

In 15 years, the group has become the preferred partner of prestigious festivals such as Hellfest, Les Vieilles Charrues and Lollapalooza, as well as leading professional clubs including PSG, Stade Français, Lausanne Sport and Club Bruges. Weezevent solutions are also used for events such as the Paris Air Show, the Belgium Formula 1 GP, Taste of Paris, the Vendée Globe, and the Fan Zone of Euro 2016 and the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
