There were enough hurdles in planning large-scale events before the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, you’re facing the added challenges of complying with Covid-19 regulations and keeping your patrons safe. At VBO Tickets, we offer tips and tools that help you welcome guests back with confidence.
VBO Tickets offers customer solutions for reopening public events
We may be located in San Jose, California, but our advanced ticketing platform can help you plan an event anywhere in the country. Our software seamlessly integrates with your website to create and manage your event.
At VBO Tickets, we do more than sell tickets for your event; we are a total ticketing and event engagement solution. Since we went to market in 2012, we’ve worked with performing arts venues, concerts, theaters, educational institutions, sports events, museums, festivals, and comedy clubs. We work with you personally to learn your needs and deliver tailored solutions. We work with you during the event planning process to streamline operations, boost productivity, and grow revenue.
The most pressing challenge facing event planners today is post-pandemic regulations. As you reopen your doors, we can join with you to offer a customizable platform capable of handling every aspect of social distancing and capacity regulations.
How to maximize social distancing through advanced ticket sales
If social distancing guidelines have you wondering how to approach ticket sales, you’re not alone. Advanced ticket sales are the solution, and you’ll find the process smooth and manageable with a platform such as VBO Tickets.
Before opening ticket sales, use our platform to designate a preset number of seats to remain empty around each group of seats purchased by your patrons. When viewing your venue’s seating map in VBO’s ticket-buying interface, your customers can select any number of seats together. As soon as these seats are reserved, other ticket buyers will see non-selectable seats on either side of the group of seats.
How to set venue capacity limits through advanced ticket sales
As an event planner, you’re also probably looking for ways to adhere to limitations on the number of patrons you can allow through your doors. You’ll find setting capacity limits is easy to accomplish through advanced ticket sales.
When organizing your event with a platform like VBO Tickets, you can set the number of tickets you sell to comply with capacity mandates. For example, if your venue holds 200 seats, but you’re only permitted to allow an audience of 100 patrons, your customers will see a message at the top of your venue’s seating map explaining the limited seating and the number of seats remaining. Once your patrons have purchased the tickets you allotted for the event, ticket sales will close.
How to control crowds at merchandise tables and concession stands through advanced ticket sales
Activities that were once commonplace at concerts, sports events, and theaters are now causing concern. For example, how should you allow your patrons to purchase food and merchandise safely during your event? Crowded lines at concession stands and merchandise tables are health risks. With an advanced ticketing platform like VBO Tickets, you can make merchandise and food available to your patrons ahead of time. Customers can make these purchases on your website as they buy their tickets. You can eliminate crowds by delivering food and merchandise directly to your customers’ seats.
How to use timed ticketing systems to improve traffic flow
In planning for reopening, you may have encountered regulations requiring stricter monitoring of patron flow. Timed ticketing can help your venue comply with this monitoring by offering groups of tickets with specific entry times. Timing the entry of your guests allows you greater capacity control. This type of entry system is already standard for many museums and tour operators. Now restaurants, retail stores, salons, gyms, and community pools are also exploring timed ticketing.
Advanced ticket sales with a platform like VBO Tickets enables you to make timed tickets visible to your patrons in an easy-to-read grid. Your customers will see real-time, color-coded updates with blue showing times tickets are still available, yellow indicating times tickets are running low, and red meaning tickets for that time slot are sold out.
As you organize your first large-scale event after the pandemic, VBO Tickets can help make it a success. Our customizable tools offer personalized solutions to address social distancing, capacity control, merchandise sales, and traffic flow.
