Ticket Tailor is a ticketing platform that offers event organisers a simple, helpful and great value way to manage event registration.

Our mission is to be the world’s best loved ticketing platform - five million tickets are currently sold through our service every year and we have a world class NPS score. We are ranked the #1 easiest to use ticketing platform in the world (G2Crowd), #1 event registration platform in the world (GetApp) and one of the top UK companies to watch for 2021 (Capterra).

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. We're proud to be in the process of becoming B Corp certified.
