Designed by event planners, for event planners

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

It is the first French ticketing platform as a self-service SaaS (Software as a Service) for event planners. Simple, quick and profes­sional, the platform is free to access and allows you to create tailored events, offer tickets or online invites, promote an event and manage access at the door. Weezevent works with tens of thousands of event planners of all sizes, operating across event indus­tries in Europe and Canada.

“While innov­ation is at the heart of our mission, I make sure every day that planners of all events – whether big or small – can use Weezevent.”

Pierre-Henri Deballon Weezevent CEO

Founders

  • 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 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.
