Eventbrite launches free public events drive

Ticketing and registration platform Eventbrite has created a multimedia exhibition celebrating free events, set to tour through London, Glasgow and Dublin.

The exhibition, which will run from 6-17 April through the three cities, will also provide the backdrop to networking events and discussions for attendees.

London’s panel discussion will see DJ Magazine editor Carl Loben joining DJ Pete Woosh and Continental Drifts director Chris Tofu, while the Glasgow panel will explore the challenges and advantages of creating music events.

Joel Crouch (pictured), Eventbrite’s general manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “Next week’s roundtable and discussions will provide us with a healthy debate.  Free event organisers tell us that their pinch points for hosting free music, community and cultural gatherings can be as simple as availability of suitable venues and spaces.

“Sometimes they are looking for guidance on everything from health and safety training, to making the most of social media and technology to market and manage the event.  We had over one million free events on the Eventbrite platform last year and are pleased to be able host a free-style exhibition of iconic images and memories – as well as support the many organisers who run free events.”
