Event solutions company Vendini opens offices in Petaluma
July 6, 2015 by basinadmin
Petaluma, CA – Basin Street Properties, a prominent Northern California real estate investor and developer, has signed a lease with Vendini for 7,598 square feet in its Waterfront Office Building in Petaluma. Vendini provides an all-in-one solution for live events with easy to use tools for ticketing, marketing and analytics, logistics, fundraising and more for performing arts, live music, music festival and live event spaces.
“Vendini opening an office here is important to Petaluma for two reasons. It brings technical jobs to the region and it aligns with Petaluma’s long standing passion for the arts and music,” said Scott Stranzl, Vice President of Leasing for Basin Street Properties. “It also points to a broader trend of Bay Area companies looking north to Petaluma for better rents, an attractive employee base and a more affordable cost of living.”
Vendini was founded in 2001 by Mark Tacchi, the company’s current CEO and President. Tacchi began developing the original Vendini software from a house in Lake Tahoe in-between snowboarding sessions. Beginning as a solution directed primarily at theaters and playhouses, Vendini has expanded into the live music, music and arts festival, casino and sporting event spaces and more. “I got into the ticketing business because I saw opportunity, but also because I wanted to give something back to the community,” explains Tacchi. “It’s my contribution. I can’t act, sing or dance, but I can create awesome applications for the arts that you don’t have to be a genius to use.”
“We are excited to join the Petaluma community,” said Mark Dirsa, CFO of Vendini. “Petaluma provides a great mixture of rural and urban environments that our employees’ desire and has a well-established music and arts scene that aligns with our business solutions.”
The Waterfront Office Building is a three-story, 50,755 square foot Class A office building located in the vibrant downtown Petaluma Theatre District. The building boasts convenient access to Highway 101, free and abundant parking, on-site lockers and showers and is adjacent to the Petaluma River. Representing Basin Street Properties was Tony Sarno of Cushman & Wakefield while Vendini was represented by Jack Doherty of CM Commercial Real Estate.
