Marcato sets sights on European expansion

CANADA: Following the recent signing of six festivals organised by Broadwick Live, the festival management software company Marcato Digital Solutions plans to expand its presence in the European market later this year.

“Over the years we’ve proven that our tools can deliver the requirements for some of Europe’s biggest festivals,” said Darren Gallop, CEO and founder of Marcato Digital Solutions. “It’s natural that our next step is to increase our existing presence in the market.”

Marcato’s network security scores an A+ rating being both SOC2 certified and compliant. These strong security measures have granted Marcato work with over 300 live events and festivals around the world each year.

Marcato’s multiple product packages simplify the live event management process on a small, medium, and large scale. Marcato Light is designed with smaller events, whereas its Standard, Plus, and Enterprise tiers cater towards larger ones that require more features – such as talent, vendor and volunteer management.

The different product tiers have enabled festivals of all varieties to use a system that is suitable for their specific needs.

Alex Rodwell, a member of the Festival Committee for Orkney Folk Festival, said: “Marcato is one of the key systems used for the planning of Orkney Folk Festival. The integrated elements of Marcato deliver a powerful tool which is critical in distributing information amongst the team.”

Marcato Digital Solutions is a Canadian company that specialises in the creation and development of web-based management solutions designed to maximise efficiency in the live event industry. Since 2008, it has been used in over 25 countries around the world by festivals including Iceland Airwaves, Greenbelt, HebCelt Festival, Eurosonic Noorderslag, Festival No. 6, c/o Pop, Coachella Osheaga, Bonnaroo, and Outside Lands.
