Düsseldorf, Northrhine-Westphalia (Germany), January 7, 2022

vivenu, the premier ticketing solution provider for sophisticated organizers and venues, has entered into a contract to provide its ticketing solution software to Art Düsseldorf, a leading German fair where an eclectic mix of regional and international galleries showcase contemporary and post-war art every year. Founded in 2017, Art Düsseldorf has quickly become a mainstay of the international art fair circuit, attracting some of the foremost galleries and more than 40,000 visitors every year.

Under the contract, vivenu will power a new unified online ticket shop for the fair that makes the ticket-buying experience faster, safer, and more intuitive for all visitors. The platform's powerful tools will ensure maximum convenience and security as the fair ramps up for its 2022 instalment.

These include the vivenu check-in app with instant Covid certificate scan as well as dedicated platform capabilities around sequenced access and time slots for visitors. As a result, vivenu will make sure that Art Düsseldorf stays Covid-compliant – and that visitors can enjoy a safe and secure experience at all times.

"We could not be more enthusiastic about this new partnership. Art Düsseldorf has quickly grown into one of the leading art fairs in Europe, with an impressive roster of galleries and pieces year after year. With vivenu, the fair will make ticketing part of its visitor experience: With maximum flexibility and countless customization options, Art Düsseldorf will use our platform to provide a truly unique ticketing experience that is also deeply integrated with its digital guest journey.”
