The Royal Institution (Ri) is one of London’s foremost cultural hubs. The Mayfair-based Institution was founded in 1799 as a venue for scientists to advance their work through discussion and share their findings with the wider public.

The Royal Institution hosts 70 public events per year, attracting 16,000 attendees. It chose Eventbrite to make self-service ticketing easier, for both event organisers and attendees.

We spoke to Martin Davies, Public Programme Manager at the independent charity, to find out how Eventbrite is helping this famous Institution bring its ticketing needs firmly into the 21st century and create a ticketing service which is fully integrated with its Salesforce database.

The four main reasons the Royal Institute chose to partner with Eventbrite:

1. Eventbrite’s discovery platform

2. Mobile ticketing options for attendees

3. Simple integration with Salesforce

4. Easy account reconciliation
