Comparing to other countries, Russian event sales and event ticketing industry is quite young. The old-fashioned paper-based ticketing started to be replaced by modern ticketing solutions only about ten years ago. Eventually, the industry developed at its unique path and pace. According to PwC research, the event ticketing industry in Russia grows at an average annual rate of 7,2% during 2017-2021 (compared to 4,2% average worldwide). By the end of 2016, 60% of the tickets were electronic. Nowadays, already 90% of tickets are sold online, but the market still differs from any European or American.
