Our journey to create the perfect online ticketing system.
The IWannaTicket Story
Our mission is to give event organisers the ticketing system they deserve.
We take the stress out of ticketing, letting event organisers focus on what they do best.
Our ticketing solution empowers event organisers with all the data and functionality they need, saving them time and helping them sell more tickets.
Launched in 2009, IWannaTicket is proudly Australian owned and independent. It was founded by Jonathan Namey, an event organiser who was frustrated by difficult ticketing systems - and believed there had to be a better way.
While studying Law at the University of Sydney, Jonathan organised regular events for thousands of people. He was often frustrated by the inflexibility of available ticketing platforms and knew that many other event organisers felt the same.
After graduating and working in corporate law for several years, Jonathan's passion for events was reignited when he met Andrew Done, who ran a Sydney software consultancy called Simple Machines.
Together, the lawyer and the tech whizz embarked on a journey to build the ticketing platform event organisers deserve; one that Jonathan wished had been available when he was running events. One year later, IWannaTicket was launched.
Since 2009, IWannaTicket has grown to provide ticketing solutions to some of Australia's biggest and most well-known events including Womadelaide, Wine Machine and Woodford Folk Festival.
Our team has grown too, allowing us to become a full service ticketing platform, provide ongoing account management, event day and software development support to our clients.
As technology has evolved, so too has IWannaTicket's capability. We've developed a ticketing platform that can be customised to suit the specific needs of our clients.
Enabling event organisers, not restricting them.
We work with events of all shapes and sizes Australia-wide, from rural shows to major touring festivals with tens of thousands of attendees.
We know the importance of delivering a seamless customer experience with consistent branding.
Our ticketing system can be embedded into your event's website allowing attendees to purchase tickets without ever leaving your website.
Our check-out process has been tested over and over again and it is proven to convert more than other systems, meaning you can sell more tickets.
At IWannaTicket we're all about saving you time, empowering you with the functionality and customisation you need and most importantly, helping you sell more tickets.
IWannaTicket is here to give event organisers the ticketing system they deserve!
