Josh Dziabiak and Lynsie Camuso are the dynamic darlings of the web-based ticketing industry with a company in Shadyside that is going up against the big guns in the online ticketing world. It's about time.
Founded in 2007, ShowClix
is a full-service ticketing company that gives event organizers, promoters and venue managers innovative solutions to sell tickets online, over the phone and in the box office. Revenues in 2009 hit $4.7 million and the company expects to nearly double that in 2010 with $8 million. ShowClix is also in hiring mode and plans to add to its staff of 18 this year, reports Camuso.
What makes ShowClix unique in the business is it was the first to introduce mobile MMS ticketing in the U.S. The web-based solutions mean that tickets are delivered electronically right into mailboxes. The leading edge ticket scanners run on the Google Android platform and plug into Facebook, Twitter and Eventful, making selling tickets faster and more efficient than snail mail.
ShowClix signed its first international client this year, giving it a presence in Australia, and will be the presenting sponsor of the Billboard Touring Conference and Awards, a high profile industry event. Dziabiak was also named by Inc. Magazine as one of the "Top 30 Entrpreneurs Under the Age of 30" this year.
"Joshua and I are lucky to be surrounded by the most talented and dedicated group of people we could have every imagined," says Camuso. "Not only is our team passionate about our product and the industry, but they're 100% committed to providing our clients and customers with the best service possible. The company wouldn't be where it is today without our team."
