About Ticket Tailor
Our mission is to empower a diverse range of event creators by making it easy and affordable to sell tickets online. We believe in doing business for the good of society and the environment, by growing better not just bigger.
Last year, over 10 million orders were placed through the Ticket Tailor platform, for all types of events from art installations to water park entry. We have a world class NPS score, and pride ourselves in building a simple platform built with a customer-first mindset, whilst making a difference to the planet by donating 1p to climate causes for every ticket sold.
We’re fully independent meaning we don’t have to answer to anyone except ourselves and our customers, allowing us to scale the company sustainably and with soul.
