How it began

Ovation started out with the desire to help Québec presenters and promoters benefit from modern technology. Soundly established, today our ticketing system has evolved for over 40 years. Ovation was one of the first major Québec companies in the field and has since been instrumental in ticketing system automation in, and around Quebec.

Nevertheless, it was when Ovation partnered with two institutions, the “Maison des arts de Drummondville” and the “Palace de Granby”, that the Réseau Ovation brand became known. From that point on, it was the institutions and their daily needs that guided the development of the platform we know today.

We won’t stop progress! Ovation is as vibrant and dynamic as ever, and our road map is filled with exciting projects to fuel the innOvation wave for the next 40 years.
