10 Best Event Listing SitesList my event
The year is 2018, and there’s certainly no shortage of event listing sites to choose from.
In fact, you have fantastic services like evvnt.com that automatically submit your event to hundreds of event listing sites
Thing is, these services assume that you already have an established event page or website to send visitors to. If that is the case, you should by all means give them a try!
But if you’re looking for a self-service ticketing platform that lets you create an event page and acts as an event listing site, read on for our list of 10 best event listing sites in the UK.
While there are dozens of ticketing platforms where you can list an event, we’ve handpicked the best ones based on the following must-have criteria:
With that said, let’s look at the list:
With its humble start in 2000 as a low-key ticketing system for music events, WeGotTickets has since expanded its scope to cover many other types of events and organisers. The company prides itself on a transparent and ethical approach to ticketing.
The front page prominently displays four featured events, with additional options to search for events based on location, date, genre, and more. WeGotTickets site is partially supported by third-party ads, which some site visitors may find a bit jarring.
Billetto operates in 11 European markets including the UK. The company is especially passionate about inspiring people to go out more and experience the world. To that end, Billetto uses advanced AI to automatically display matching events to visitors based on their prior preferences. Organisers may thereby get free exposure to relevant audiences. Billetto also boasts a quick and intuitive event creation process.
The front page is designed to showcase a large number of events arranged by theme, budget, and other factors. Billetto offers advanced search and filtering by location, date, category, price range, and more.
Headquartered in Spain, Ticketea has an international presence, allowing organisers from all over the world to create events on the platform. The site offers a selection of branded products targeting specific organiser needs, such as RFID technology to box office solutions.
Ticketea’s front page is heavily focused on search as the main event discovery tool, although it also displays a limited list of events. Visitors get access to advanced filtering options only upon entering a search term.
Eventbrite is a well-established player in self-service ticketing with a global presence, catering to a wide range of events. The company offers out-of-the-box integrations with many sites and apps, giving organisers extended functionality on the platform.
The company’s search-focused front page also displays a good number of events and provides links to popular categories for quick browsing. Eventbrite’s event mix skews slightly towards corporate events, conferences, and the like.
Founded in 2004, TicketSource prides itself on “five star support," helping organisers get started on the platform. Its event creator offers a large number of options and has a rather complex, multi-step interface which may bewilder first-time visitors. But the support team is always standing by to help.
The front page is aimed primarily at event organisers and doesn’t display any events upfront. However, the inclusion of a search bar that lets people search events qualifies TicketSource for inclusion on this list of event listing sites.
Universe is a relative newcomer to the ticketing scene, founded in Toronto in 2011. Acquired by Live Nation Entertainment in 2015, the company acts as a full-service ticketing and event listing site. It has a clean interface and supports events in many parts of the world including the UK.
The front page has both a straightforward search functionality and a large selection of featured events by topics and different categories. The filtering options are limited to event date and category.
Bookitbee is yet another self-service ticketing site that lets people sell tickets and take bookings online while processing payments on their behalf. It positions itself as a platform for any type of event of any size and goes for the broad appeal.
The front page is almost exclusively targeting event organisers, which doesn’t make it an ideal event marketplace or event discovery tool. There is a small search bar at the top that pulls up a list of relevant ones based on the search query.
Designed to be an attractive alternative to traditional ticketing, Fatsoma offers the same basic self-service online ticketing features as the other event listing platforms on the list. The company carves out a niche by giving organisers tools to better engage with their followers and even incentivise them to sell tickets.
The front page hides events behind a location-based search gateway, which requires visitors to first type in their current location to pull up a list of nearby events. Filters are limited to location, date, and a few event categories.
Ticketline bills itself as one of Europe’s largest primary ticket agent and have serviced the UK market for 30 years. Self-service ticketing is done via the company’s “Ticketlight" product, which allows organisers to create their own events as on any other do-it-yourself platform.
The front page real estate is dedicated to showcasing a large number of events and offers search by artist, event, and venue. Ticket buyers can also browse events by a few preset categories.
See Tickets has its roots in a Nottingham-based record shop that was selling tickets to concert in the 1990s and transitioned to the online See Tickets brand in 2004. The company is open to most types of events but has a special focus on music, festival, sport, comedy, and lifestyle events. The text-heavy event creator takes some getting used to but offers a lot of customisation options.
