Smeetz, a Swiss startup to revolutionise ticketing in the UK
Earlier in the year, the Swiss-based company, which offers an intelligent ticketing and 
pricing solution, announced its first clients in the UK. This was just the beginning for 
the company and their plans to enter the UK market by the end of the year. The 
start-up is already well established in Switzerland and with further partnerships 
across Europe and the UAE. Clients include the Chillon Castle Foundation, the Swiss 
Vapeur Parc and The Crocky Trail. Smeetz has a keen international focus and plans to 
enter a dozen markets by 2025. 
Founded 5 years ago, Smeetz has been able to adapt to the recent paradigm shift by being 
the first ticketing software to offer a dynamic pricing solution to tourism and cultural players. 
Now double award winners in both Innovation and Digitourism, they look to the future with 
focused ambition. 
Since the beginning of the year, in parallel with the closing of its convertible round and 
development in Europe, the audacious scale-up has been preparing its entry into the British 
market. With the gradual reopening of leisure facilities in Great Britain, Smeetz won its first 
contracts in the UK. The Crocky Trail, a theme park in south Liverpool, has been using 
Smeetz's ticketing solution since early May. Its little brother, the Habberley Trail, also 
adopted the technology a few months ago. 
The Smeetz team is delighted with this double success, which marks its entry into the United 
Kingdom. To facilitate its expansion overseas, the company now has a British footprint with 
further growth plans already in motion for completion by the end of the year. The 
post-pandemic environment brings with it exciting new opportunities with the announcement 
of a newly appointed UK Country Manager. Smeetz has gone about strategically introducing 
the company to the UK leisure and cultural markets and will also be present at the British 
Travel & Tourism Show on September 22 and 23, 2021. 
Last but not least, the company's in the starting block for its fundraising planned for the end 
of the year. The latter is an important step for Smeetz's development as it will allow the 
startup to put into action its plan to internationalise in the rest of Europe.
