Vendini Takes Lead in Canadian Ticketing Market with Boxxo Acquisition


Company Expands Current Footprint; Strengthens Team with Deal

the company that makes the business of live events simple, today
announced that it has acquired Boxxo, Quebec's leading ticketing
software company. Boxxo has been helping arts organizations in Quebec
sell tickets for more than 15 years. It currently serves many theaters,
cultural, sports and leisure organizations in Quebec. For Vendini, this
move expands the company's customer base and its international presence.

"Today we're welcoming a team of people who share the same passion for
live events as we do," said Mark Tacchi, Vendini's Founder and CEO.
"Boxxo brings tremendous love and experience needed for the French
Canadian market. Together, Boxxo and Vendini are honored to now be the
largest ticketing solution serving Quebec."

Vendini has made several strategic acquisitions over the last several
years as it expands its platform capabilities and serves a broader range
of customers. This includes InTicketing, CrowdTorch, and Dataflow. Much
like the deal with Boxxo, each of these acquisitions helped Vendini
increase market share and add capabilities that have allowed it to
deliver the leading white-label ticketing solution to the broader live
events market.

"Vendini has had a strong presence in Canada for many years, and we were
looking for a partner in the market that would help us more quickly
address our customers' interest in moving to a cloud environment," said
Boxxo founder and president, Bernard Boissonneault. "The opportunity to
deliver a key customer need and extend our market across Canada, with a
like-minded company like Vendini was our ideal solution."

Boxxo team members will join Vendini and continue to serve Boxxo's
customers. Like Vendini, Boxxo's team includes many with deep roots in
the arts, bringing additional expertise in what event managers and live
events staff need from their event management solution provider both
from technology and high-level service.
