Tickethour was founded in 2005, by George V. Bolos, Director General of the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games ATHENS 2004 and by Stefanos Kakarantzas, Ticketing Manager of the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games ATHENS 2004, with the objective to develop a niche ticketing Services Company for the Greek market. Based on prior Olympic Games experience the team identified the opportunity to respond to the growing needs of various Greek sectors including sports and entertainment by leveraging the power of ever increasing advanced technologies , the Internet and e-ticketing. Since 2009 the company has expanded internationally and has managed to acquire the sport business in Cyprus, Qatar, United Kingdom, Norway,Bahrain and the United States. The UK Company was incorporated in July 2011 and commenced trading in October 2011.
By aiming to offer products and services of the highest standards in the form of turn-key competitive ticketing solutions, the Tickethour system was introduced with the intent to put forward a business solely dedicated to:
• The development, supply and management of a B2B state-of-the-art 100% Web-based Ticketing System that invests a lot in research and development.
• The direct sale and distribution of electronic tickets to consumers through various channels including the internet, call centres, ticket outlets, IVR, and bank ATMs.
