Sports Events 365, the international provider of tickets for sports and music events worldwide, has signed an agreement with Havas Voyages, one of France’s largest and most respected travel agency networks, which will sharply increase Sports Events 365's presence in France, one of the company’s key markets. Under the terms of the agreement Havas Voyages will offer sporting tickets on its site using Sports Events 365's destination-based database and search engine at www.sportsevents365.fr.
France is already one of the largest markets for Sports Events 365, a leading force in the secondary tickets market for sporting events of global interest. Last year revenues in France were nearly 1 million euro. “The deal with Havas Voyages will double our presence in the French market within a matter of a few years,” predicts Sefi Donner, founder and CEO of Sports Events 365. He adds that the deal will give the company tremendous visibility in France and enable it to take advantage of the huge interest of the French market in global sporting events.
