MyTicket CEO Moritz Schwenkow adds, “This will enable us to market the events of the DEAG family and new, innovative formats in direct communication with our customers in an even more targeted manner.”

Among DEAG majority-owned promoters are the UK’s Kilimanjaro Live, Switzerland’s  Good News Productions and Germany’s Wizard Promotions.
