TIXSTAR arrived in March 2016 to provide a dedicated online destination for premium sports & entertainment experiences, basically anything more than just a ticket.
Many customers have traditionally found the experience of searching, comparing, finding and buying to be very time consuming and difficult. Searching multiple websites, finding packages, checking availability, making phone calls, receiving/sending emails, completing booking forms, scanning and emailing..... it was never-ending! There had to be a better way... The answer was a platform that brought all authorised providers together to make it easy for you as the customer to search, find and book.
The solution was found over a beer at a South Melbourne pub with Bike Exchange founders Jason Wyatt and Sam Salter from Marketplacer. We all have a passion for events and experiences and want to make these experiences more easily accessible for everyone. TIXSTAR was created (after a number of beers!) and was officially esablished as part of the Marketplacer - which began with the award-winning BikeExchange (Telstra Business of the Year Winner) and has evolved into a further 14 marketplaces across 9 countries globally.
The group currently operates BikeExchange,The MYER Market, TiniTrader, House of Home, Cycling Tips, Outdoria, GoSee Australia, Lenzo, Cellarspace and TIXSTAR.
Backed by the Marketplacer Board which includes Gerry Ryan (Jayco), David Paradice and Peter Bartels amongst others, TIXSTAR is set to re-define the way we access the best experiences at live events for any occasion.
Live sport & entertainment is part of our DNA, and we make it easy to book your next experience when you are wanting more than a ticket. Having worked in the industry for over 15 years, we have come across some of the most amazing experiences that a lot of customers are not aware of. We felt compelled to help you make your next live event experience as memorable as possible - TIXSTAR opens the door for you to access these experiences and book directly with hundreds of authorised providers.
TIXSTAR was created to help you easily find and book the best experiences in sport & entertainment while unlocking the most amazing experiences.
