Speaking about how TicketPlease is expanding its operations, Mr Praful Baweja, Head – Business Development (Entertainment), Ticketplease says:  “We have had many key insights about Internet Users & thereby Entertainment consumers in Tier 2 & 3 cities through our Movies, Events & Offers.  Some of them include the growth of internet penetration in rural India being driven largely by the mobile phone; 70% of rural India's active internet population access the web via mobile phones. This may have to do with the difficulty in accessing PCs.  Also forty-two percent of rural India's internet users prefer using the internet in local languages. The high prevalence of content in English is a hurdle for much of rural India.

We adapted this intelligence in current initiatives with communication being done in locally favoured language and seen encouraging response with higher conversion. Customised Solutions based on local language and local convenience would continue to be our key focus along with growth”
