GLOWNET: 500 events and counting!

January 29, 2018

We Made It! 500 events across the world. What started 5 years ago with a dream and vision from Scott Witters, is now the global market leader in Event Technology. What a journey it has been. From just 7 events in 2013, we, last year alone, delivered over 200 events across 29 countries. And we finished the year with a blast. Over the new year’s weekend we returned to beautiful New Zealand to mark our 500th event delivery at Rhythm & Alps.

The best place to be

We first worked with the guys in 2014, and have since provided the festival with three years of smooth, reliable cashless payments to advance the festival experience. This year, over 50 international and local artists performed at the festival, attracting over 10,000 people to celebrate the end of 2017. As Alex Turnbull, Festival Director Rhythms & Alps puts it; “It’s the best place to be in NZ for New Year’s; awesome music, immaculate production, amazing weather and a relaxed atmosphere all make for a world-class festival.” And we couldn’t agree more!!


“It was always my dream to reach this point. Starting 5 years ago I could never have imagined the journey and growth we’ve seen. Thanks to our strong team and dedicated partners, we have accomplished something incredible.” – Scott Witters, Founder

In one year from A to Z

At Glownet we’re looking back at an incredible year where we literally delivered events from Argentina to Zimbabwe. Thanks to our partners and our Glowballs (the least appropriate nickname for our amazing team) more people across the globe have experienced a smooth festival experience than ever before. Check our case studies to see how we’ve expanded far beyond the Music space and are now the technology of choice for exhibitionscorporate events and sport venues.

More to come

But no time to rest for team Glownet. We’re ramping up to another incredible year. The first week of Feb, we’ll be in New Zealand (yes, again New Zealand; we’re chasing the sun this winter) where we’ll be hosting the Rugby 7s together with our partner Montana Catering. In true Kiwi style, combining sports and fun, we’ll be on-site to deliver the best experience.

Happy 2018 from all Glowballs!
