Joren de Wachter
Joren de Wachter joined Seats.io in December 2015 as Chief Opportunity Officer.
Joren’s role at Seats.io is to drive the business development, by spreading
the gospel of how seating plans are essential to improve ticket buyers’
customer experience, and, as a result, generate revenue and conversion
growth for the venue/vendor.
Trained as a lawyer, Joren worked in both private practice and in-house
with software businesses, before setting up an IP niche consultancy
boutique in 2008, aimed primarily at start-ups. In 2015 he switched from
advising to the real thing, and joined the fledgling start-up Seats.io. There,
he has been driving business growth, helping the bootstrapped business to
grow from 3 to 7 people, more than 100 customers worldwide, and 1million
booked seats per month, of which more than half on mobile.
Joren is an experienced public speaker at conferences, including TEDx. In
his free time, he has been seen playing the guitar, sometimes performing at
gigs in small clubs or festivals in Belgium.
He is looking forward to presenting his thoughts at Ticketing Professionals
