Sun Tixx Caribbean changes the ticketing game in the Region
Jean-Marc Aimey; CEO of Sun Tixx Caribbean, gives us an inside look into one of the Caribbean’s leading ticketing services. Find out how this local business was able to expand regionally and gain the distinction of being a finalist for the Business Technology Award, sponsored by bmobile, at this year’s Champions of Business.
What prompted the birth Sun Tixx Caribbean?
Sun Tixx Caribbean Limited is a ticketing enterprise, that I founded with my business partner Jason Cox, and our Colombian partner Alejandro Trujillo in 2011. Prior to starting this business, I had an active career in events management. Through this experience, I found that a gap in the market existed where ticket sales were being inefficiently managed and I wanted to find a solution.
Tell us a bit more about the service you provide…

What sets Sun Tixx apart?
While Jason manages programming, I manage the day to day operations of the business. Together, we developed and launched a proprietary technology platform and was able to position ourselves to be highly competitive, firstly in the Colombian market in 2012 and in the Caribbean thereafter.
We partner with multiple companies who distribute tickets at their establishments, after they are purchased from our platform making it easier for, event patrons to collect tickets and also making it easier for the event hosts, to collect payments. The technology allows for real time tracking of tickets purchases, so that event hosts can track sales and plan for guests, more efficiently.
