Case study — How Eventbrite conquered the Netherlands

Eventbrite is the largest event technology platform in the world on which more than 2 million events are being organized every year. The collaboration between Eventbrite and MiU started at the beginning of 2016. Shortly after, Eventbrite opened an office in Amsterdam, which became the third Eventbrite office in Europe after London and Berlin. MiU helped putting Eventbrite on the map in the Netherlands by taking care of the strategy, marketing, PR and business development. In January 2017, Eventbrite bought the Dutch company ticketscript and the team of Eventbrite in the Netherlands grew to over 40 employees. By now, Eventbrite is the second largest ticketing platform in Europe.

About the founders

MiU.agency is established by Sheraz and Nawaz Kazmi in 2009. Their father is from Pakistan and their mother from the Netherlands, so the brothers grew up with two completely different cultures. This resulted in the natural ability to adapt to different environments while staying true to their roots. The ‘world citizens’ obtained success with The Pure Family, a modern chain of unique concepts, including salad bar HAKA, restaurant Hills & Mills, cookbook Papa Kazmi and workspace GR!T.
