Creator Love

CHARLIE - CO-CREATOR MEADOWS IN THE MOUNTAINS

"Prior to Easol, the processes were so fragmented, and we had little control over our brand and customer journey. It was amazing to be able to bring Meadows back this year after two years of postponements and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of Easol. We have sold more tickets, accommodation options and extra experiences, and as a result achieved significantly more revenue with Easol than any other platform in the 10 year history of our festival."

SEAN - HEAD OF SALES -ENVISION FESTIVAL

"We multiplied our launch revenue 6x using Easol. One of the key features we use is payment plans, which 90% of our customers book with and love. The office hours are also super valuable, I love being able to spitball ideas with the team and the support is fantastic! They really deliver everything they say they will do."

TOM - CREATOR - OTHERLANDS

"We love working with Easol! One of the main draws for us moving to Easol is the expertise held by the team in selling experiences. We're excited to grow our event on a platform that is built to help us sell more add ons and packages. Our website is great and the customer service is first rate!"

SEAN - CEO - WANDERLUST

"We partnered with Easol to take Wanderlust to the next level. Easol is the holy trinity – enabling us to handle ticketing, lodging and scheduling too, The team at Easol really understand the complexity of our business as they used to run complex events themselves – this is something that really attracted me to joining the platform."

CRAIG - MANAGING DIRECTOR - BOURNEMOUTH 7’S FESTIVAL

"Easol’s partnership helped make our 15th year a huge success! We want to thank you to the whole Easol team for their end to end support and the team’s contribution in to making Bournemouth 7s Festival 15th year the huge success it was!"
