Eventbrite: Number of events, tickets sold doubled in 2011

The number of countries represented in Eventbrite's listings has grown to 174, but the San Francisco-based startup only has two offices: one in the U.S. and another in the U.K.

Eventbrite recently treated event-goers to a very handy mobile app for presenting tickets, but it turns out that was just one of the many successes for event agency in 2011.

(FYI, a mobile app for event planners using Eventbrite has already been around since 2010.)

For starters, the number of events listed on Eventbrite approximately doubled from from 222,353 posted in 2010 to 458,207 in 2011.

On top of that, the quantity of tickets sold also grew from 11,004,743 in 2010 to 20,798,509 in 2011.

New Year's Eve events alone saw 265,027 tickets sold.

Although 14,950 cities were represented in Eventbrite's listings in 2011, many of them are found in tech-loving metropolises such as New York, Chicago, and London.

Part of Eventbrite's success could rely on the fact that the platform is quite simple to use and, now, much more easily accessible. The Entry Manager app alone checked in 1,193,756 guests last year.

The number of countries represented in Eventbrite's listings has grown to 174, but the San Francisco-based startup only has two offices: one in the U.S. and another in the U.K.
