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.

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.

Founders

  • Pierre-Henri Deballon
    Pierre-Henri Deballon Co-Founder & CEO

    Pierre-Henri mainly drives Weezevent’s strategy, finance, business management and marketing. 

    Pierre-Henri previously worked in business development and strategy consulting. It was around that time that he came up with the concept for Vélotour, “an unexpected bike ride” gathering 25,000 people each year. A former athlete, Pierre-Henri played professional handball for a year. Since 2008 he supports startups as coach and jury member in competitions or as a business angel along with Sébastien. Pierre-Henri graduated from ESCP-EAP in entrepreneurship and Paris Dauphine University in Economics and Sports Management, where he met Sébastien.

  • Sébastien Tonglet
    Sébastien Tonglet Co-Founder & General Manager

    Sébastien breaks the rules and follows his intuition to develop Weezevent’s activity and product. 

    Sébastien built his career in media and telecom, first in the advertising department at NRJ Group then working for Orange’s TV business unit. Attracted to projects in launch phase, Sébastien then joined ASSU 2000 Group as a business development project manager to drive the launch of its web activity and implementation on the Spanish market. Around the same time, Sébastien co-founded Vélotour — the first leasure biking event in France — and co-invested with Pierre-Henri in companies they liked. Sébastien graduated from Paris Panthéon-Assas University with a Masters in Marketing and Communication, and from University Paris Dauphine in Economics and Sports Management where he met Pierre-Henri. Furthermore, Sébastien is a former top level athlete in Judo.
