Pypestream is combining its advanced messaging platform with Microsoft Azure’s cloud technology to bring messaging and AI-powered conversational flows to the events and entertainment industry.

By making tickets and event information easily accessible through messaging, Pypestream is bringing the on-demand economy to events and entertainment.
