Eventer’s users will gain access to the Screenz Live online platform and its events, as well as be able to buy tickets to watch events and content as part of Eventer’s offered online services.

The agreement between Eventer and Screenz includes three different commercial models. The first is Screenz as a producer, either by itself or with third parties, in which Screenz will produce the content and engage directly with the artists or performers. The second model is the production of external events, virtual conferences and content, in which Screenz and Eventer will engage with producers or content providers for the purpose of promoting, selling tickets and broadcasting events and media through Eventer’s and Screenz Live’s platforms. In some instances, the companies will consider distribution services for these events.
