Musement partners with Ingresso
NEW YORK and LONDON, December 19, 2017
Travel discovery and booking company Musement have partnered with ticketing technology firm Ingresso, which was acquired earlier this year and is owned by accesso Technology Group, plc. The integration will enhance user ability to book excursions seamlessly and swiftly on Musement by providing direct and real-time access to attractions and venues. The additional features will be implemented across US-located events, while in the UK it will apply to musicals, attractions and live music events.
Ingresso is a technology platform that helps venue operators, event producers and inventory aggregators promote and sell their tickets through much larger third-party channels. Ingresso also connects some of the world’s largest travel companies to event ticketing systems, allowing them to sell tickets over an array of sales channels to entertainment events under their own brand and payment systems.
“The core focus at Ingresso is to ‘open-up’ ticket inventory by facilitating connections between venues and great distribution channels. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Musement, one of the most exciting destination ticketing providers, to give them unparalleled access to live entertainment and attraction tickets.” commented Katy Kimbell, Business Development Manager
This latest integration represents another important step for Musement’s success, particularly in the US, where the company is expanding its presence with new offices in New York. Musement has already combined more than 50 channel management systems and ticketing platforms; this is expected to grow to over 100 in the next 12 months.
“We’re very proud to add a new important player, Ingresso to our API integration partners. This will allow us to expand our footprint, especially in the US market, by dramatically improving our customers experience,” commented Claudio Bellinzona, Co-founder & COO of Musement.
Musement allows users to discover worldwide activities, build an itinerary, and secure tickets too. User-centered technology in the tours and activities sector remains a key factor for Musement’s success.
Launched in Milan in 2013, Musement is a travel discovery and booking service that allows users to get the best from their travel destinations by providing a great choice of local tours and attractions to discover and book. More than just ‘things to do’, its range includes temporary, exclusive, hidden-gem and even free activities. Unlike most travel platforms, Musement offers content and booking options across multiple verticals, from guided tours and museums, to food & wine – and multiple touch-points; the B2C Musement and Triposo websites and apps, and the joint B2B APIs.
