EVENTBRITE has opened its new Cork office which will allow the company to almost triple its workforce capacity.
The ticketing and event technology platform opened the 11,500 sq ft office at the city’s South Mall, which will now be spacious enough to facilitate 100 staff.
Previous tenants of the bank building include the Provincial Bank of Ireland and Thomas Crosbie Holdings.
The company, which currently employs 35 people in Ireland, initially began as a localised page for Irish event organisers in 2011.
Eventbrite launched its first physical presence in Ireland in 2014 and followed it up with a customer service centre in Cork in 2016.
The Cork office subsequently evolved into a fully fledged hub for the company’s European operations.
IDA Executive Director Mary Buckley stressed the wider significance of the tech company’s new office:
“Cork’s tech infrastructure, talent pool and supportive academic network have created a compelling business environment which continues to attract investment from overseas companies in the technology sector.”
