Eventbrite just released an infographic outlining the most significant (and fun) stats of 2011.
There are a lot of interesting figures for the event industry.
Online event registration is changing the way we attend events and Eventbrite is leading the way.
Mobile Check-ins on the Rise
The most interesting figure on the report is the number of check-ins done through the Entry Manager app - a staggering 1,193,756!
This really gives you an idea of what is becoming important for our attendees.
Registration needs to be fast and smartphones are becoming a prime identification tool.
20 Million Ticket Sold
Yes, you read it right. More than 20M tickets were sold through Eventbrite.
This number is humongous.
Almost 500K events were published and $39M were raised for charity.
I must say I am am impressed by the latter.

There are some staggering stats in this infographic that tell a story for the whole industry.
Bearing in mind we are looking at a less than 6 years old startup with less than 200 employees, these results are even more amazing.
Keep up with the good work!
