Leeds tech company Ticket Arena and Event Genius has announced the creation of 11 jobs as part of a £3m investment.

The firm recorded over £50 million of sales through its online platform in 2016 and supplies event technology solutions to over 5,000 events every year across the UK, Europe and Asia.

It recently launched the Ticket Arena app on iOS and is preparing to launch a new consumer website.
