Since 2001, myZone Media has been there, online and in the streets, promoting your events and selling your tickets.
You have probably run into one of our brands at an event somewhere. From our origins with Clubvibes, clubZone, ticketZone and now myZone – we are a collective of people and services that support you, the event producer. Making big shows come together is a lot of work… a lot of risk, and the last thing you want to worry about is the technical side of internet marketing & ticketing. That is where we come in. We help you bring your ideas to life because we love it as much as you do.
myZone Media’s head office is in Vancouver, BC (Yaletown), but most of our team works in a remote work environment with team members currently based in Canada, USA, Argentina, India, Mexico, Costa Rica and Croatia. We are all very passionate at being the best in the world at what we do, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance that is enabled from our unique work environment. After all, what fun is promoting fun if you aren’t having any?
Mike Schwarz, CEO
Mike first fell in love with event marketing while attending University where he would throw epic keg parties. After graduating from UBC with his Bcom (Marketing) including a stint abroad at the University of New South Wales in Sydney Australia, Mike worked as a financial advisor for London Life. He started producing networking events for the purpose of recruiting new investment clients, but soon realized he was more passionate about event production than financial advising. After absorbing everything he could about corporate life, Mike returned to his parents basement where he started his first .com company in 2001… and hasn’t looked back since. Self employed working on internet start-ups for over 13 years, Mike now has a rich history of successful dot com projects, events & conferences. Past projects include Clubvibes, Techvibes, Massive Tech conference & DiscoverVancouver. He is now fully focused on myZone Media including ticketZone & clubZone. Mike loves to travel and spends at least 2-4 months per year on the road working remotely. His latest start-up is his growing family including a new baby boy, whom some day will hopefully become an entrepreneur like Daddy. Recognized in 2005 as a BIV top 30 under 30, Schwarz has also spoken at numerous conferences, and is passionate about building creative work environments that enable both work-life balance & lots of travel.Connect on LinkedIn
