AEG’s digital ticketing and media platform, AXS, has acquired the content destination EXAMINER.COM. EXAMINER.COM is the 37th largest website in the U.S. and the 10th largest mobile website, garnering more than 40 million unique visitors every month
“Fans have told us they don’t see the populated social media feeds of other event focused websites as truly engaging content; instead they are craving content with a deeper, authentic and editorial connection, curated for their live entertainment interests” AEG DIGITAL, TICKETING AND MEDIA Pres. BRYAN PEREZ said. “The EXAMINER platform allows AXS to do this at scale immediately.”
“We have created a large-scale content platform and we are truly excited about the integration with AXS.com. With this merger, AXS will now have the opportunity to tap into our contributors who are passionate about live events and direct them towards bringing consumers great stories around live entertainment,” said EXAMINER.COM CEO ASHISH KAPUR, who will now be joining the AXS team as the SVP/Content.
