By event makers - for event makers

Tikkio is built, operated and owned by event makers, former and present artists, culture lovers, designers and product developers, who knows exactly how to put on a great event - and all it's pitfalls.

Background

The story about Tikkio is closely connected with two cousins - Ante and Lars Giskeødegård - from the small, norwegian island Giske, with the Sunnmør mountains in east and the big sea in west. The played in the band The Margarets in many years, and were among other thing nominated for a norwegian Grammy, before they put on an event for their friends, that evolved into a large festival - the now internationally acknowledged "Summer Festival of Giske".

They learned that skill, energy and confidence could be used for multiple purposes with great success. Through the company Momentium, they have shot buds with enormous pace through the past years: A sound recording studio by the sea. A programming company, sound- and lights productions, photographs and video photographs, event companies and a marketing agency, more and more festivals and other concerts, cafés and bars are all now considered part of the Momentium Family. Thus also Tikkio.

Tikkio was established through a sore thumb from the existing ticketing services on the market: Expensive, poor user experience and inadequate functionality with the data streams that are collected from ticket sales. And not least; lack of stability. When their chosen ticket service broke down during a festival in Ålesund, it was too much for Momentium to bear. "Let's do it ourselves", they figured. And the rest is history.

To begin with Tikkio was a ticketing service solely for Momentium's events, but has been open for other event organizers since 2014. Since the beginning we've had growth rate of 1.500% in revenue, which goes to show that the demand from event organizers is huge, for a service based on our pillars:

Development

Our service has been safe and simple since the very beginning - which is a complete given for any ticketing service in our humble opinion. But we are certain that the future lies in new possibilities with data analytics from sales, reporting and evaluation tools. We see it as one of our finest objects for the years to come, to enable event organizers to take greater advantage of the endless streams out there - and we work closely with our users to achieve that. It's really a partnership, that we take very personal.

Besides being a cheaper alternative than our competitors, we are completely without binding periods or the like. Our competitors usually operate with contracts that last several years, but in Tikkio anyone - or all -. organizers can get up and leave over night, if we don't deliver what we set out to do. This keeps us constantly on our toes, and we sleep tight knowing that our organizers stay with us, not because they have to, but because they want to.

During our first years we've developed quite a lot from where we started. We've become even more user friendly and have added substantial functionality. But the business strategy stays exactly the same and we're still built, operated and owned by people with tremendous skills and a massive love for the event industry.
