Oztix has started the year in top gear adding Street Machine Summernats Car FestivalComplete Events Group and iconic Newcastle music venue The Cambridge Hotel to its already impressive calibre of clients.

Excited about the new partnership Greg Mathew (Owner) of Cambridge Hotel said“Oztix was the obvious ticketing partner for the Cambridge Hotel. We wanted an Australian based, trustworthy and reliable company, offering great service, a killer ticketing platform with all of the latest and greatest marketing offerings which was going to sell more tickets for us – that’s Oztix. The Bigsound tickets and invite to their annual VIP Bigsound lunch was also a plus!”

These new clients join Oztix’s extensive existing partners that include events – Good Things, Festival of the Sun, Party in the Paddock, Grapevine; lifestyle clients such as the Caravan and Camping Show and Sydney International Boat Show; major venues including ALH Group, Eatons Hill Hotel, The Triffid, Prince Bandroom, The Croxton, Manning Bar, The Gov, Amplifier Capital Group and more as well as the arts including Fremantle Arts Centre and the Sydney International Art Series at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).

And in an exciting addition to Oztix’s client offerings, the group recently purchased PleezPay, an event technology platform providing ticketing and fundraising services to event organisers and charities in the sports and general admission markets. PleezPay has been operating in the Australian market for 6 years and the Oztix team are looking forward to taking this innovative business to the next level.

“I was delighted that Oztix was able to purchase the PleezPay platform and be the ones to take PleezPay to its next stage. The experience, marketing expertise, and security of Oztix is a real positive for the continuing growth of PleezPay.

I’ve always admired the business the Oztix team has built in the competitive environment of event ticketing, as well as the overall company culture that is an integral element of their success. I’m looking forward to the PleezPay platform being a key part of the Oztix family into the future.” Said Simon Docherty, PleezPay Commercial Manager.
