With Eventbrite, organizers can create a customizable event page; spread the word with social media; collect money; and turn visibility into attendees and sales.

Eventbrite is for anyone planning or attending an event.  They empower event organizers to become more efficient and effective when bringing people together. And people everywhere are searching Eventbrite to discover great events that matter to them.  Join their community of attendees and organizers who come together for the magic of the live experience.
