Set up the Eventbrite events synchronisation integration

Learn how to set up the Eventbrite event synchronisation integration.


Connect Eventbrite events synchronisation to your Dotdigital account to sync real-time, published event data directly to your account. You can sync different types of data:

  • Ticket order and purchase data as contact Insight data.
  • Event attendees as contacts in an address book.

You can use this data for different reasons:

  • Create a program to send reminders or teasers prior to each event by enrolling contacts from the event address book.
  • You can segment based on ticket order data and filter these orders on the Ecommerce dashboard by filtering on order.source contains Eventbrite.

    To learn more about ecommerce filters, check out Using the Ecommerce reports.

If you have past attendee or ticket purchase data, Eventbrite syncs this historical data, too. When an event is unpublished, the address book is automatically removed.
