Helm Tickets Shortlisted For Plymouth Business Awards

Apr 5, 2019 | Featured

After entering the Plymouth Business Awards 2019 in February we are excited to announce we have been shortlisted as finalists for the following categories: Best Tech Business, Small Business of the Year and that Jon Catney our CEO has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Young Business Person of the Year category.

The Plymouth business awards features a variety of Plymouth’s most successful companies – from it’s largest to it’s smallest in a variety of sectors. The judging panel selected those to be shortlisted through hundreds of entries in a diverse range of categories. Since 2011 the prestigious awards have been seen as a huge success by the dozens of firms, individuals and organisations that have attended.

We entered the awards to celebrate the incredible growth we have seen over the last year. After being founded in 2015, we have been able to establish ourselves as a major contender in the ticketing industry. And in 2018 we saw our best year yet, nearly £100 million of ticket stock on our platform has been listed, with tickets now being sold in 60 different countries.

We are a platform built by event organisers for event organisers, and our organiser-first approach saw huge payoffs last year with a 174.3% increase in organisers registered from January to December 2018.

Our CEO, Jon Catney, has been a driving force for this growth so we are thrilled to be able to celebrate his incredible achievements at the Plymouth Business Awards this year in the Young Business Person of the Year category! Dubbed “The hippest company in Plymouth” by Plymouth Live in 2018, we are a business that’s proved to be fiercely ambitious with incredible vision. That ambition and insight is all derived from the passion that Jon has to provide the best possible platform for our organisers.

We are eagerly anticipating the awards evening on the 17th of May! For more information on the awards follow the link here!
