About us

Designed by organizers, for organizers

Weezevent is a French start-up cre­at­ed in April 2008. 

It launched the first French self-ser­vice tick­et­ing plat­form through online soft­ware (Soft­ware As A Ser­vice) aimed at event orga­niz­ers. Its sim­ple, fast and pro­fes­sion­al solu­tion is freely acces­si­ble and allows orga­niz­ers to cre­ate their cus­tomized event, to offer tick­ets, reg­is­tra­tions or invi­ta­tions online, to pro­mote their event, to fol­low its orga­ni­za­tion, and final­ly to han­dle recep­tion and admis­sion con­trol on the day of the event. Since its incep­tion, Weezevent has among its clients thou­sands of event orga­niz­ers of all sizes, oper­at­ing in all fields of event-plan­ning, most­ly in Europe, but increas­ing­ly in Cana­da as well.

A local support

The qual­i­ty of our sup­port is guar­an­teed by the pres­ence of region­al Weezevent offices. Our teams are present in France, Spain, Cana­da, Switzer­land, Bel­gium, the Unit­ed King­dom and Germany.

  • 350,000 organisers
  • 100 team members
  • 6 offices

We take care of the tech, you take care of the planning!

The Weezevent spir­it is to think of a solu­tion suit­ed to your needs. Work­ing with all kinds of event plan­ners allows us to offer a com­plete and cross-func­tion­al solu­tion. Over the years, we have learned to go beyond the lim­its of tick­et­ing to find solu­tions to all your chal­lenges. Weezevent’s solu­tion was designed by event plan­ners, for event planners.
