AUSTRALIA’S premium ticket packaging provider, Showbiz International, has set its sights on the South-east Asian market, with a new website selling event packages starting with Singapore.
Focusing on live entertainment experiences, Showbizasia.com offers travellers to Singapore a chance to purchase their complete itineraries, including concerts, hotel stays, fancy dinners and visits to local attractions.
Admission tickets to Disney’s The Lion King and the Singapore Flyer, rooms at Marina Bay Sands and meals at IndoChine Restaurant are among the offerings.
Showbiz Group CEO, Craig McMaster, told TTG Asia e-Daily that although the website has been operational for only two weeks, a number of event tickets has been sold and initial traffic is good.
McMaster admitted that the structure of Showbizasia.com is in competition with inbound travel agents, but said the company is open to partnerships with wholesale agents to move packages.
Katie Marsden, head of marketing, product and business development, will be leading Showbizasia.com’s operations in Singapore. She said that they also intend to sell events for other Asian destinations.
