Setting up online ticketing: An essential transition in 2020?

For several years now, Weezevent has been participating in the development of online ticketing services for organisers of festivals, concerts, shows and professional and sporting events. But for the last few months, new types of events have been integrating online ticketing services into their ticket sales systems. Among these actors, Weezevent has recently equipped the Deauville-Clairefontaine Racecourse, the Reynou Zoo, the Christian Dior Museum in Granville, and the GENESIS exhibition (Sebastião Salgado). Discover how to make the transition towards online ticketing in order to replace or complement your current system — and why this is essential.

1. What events can benefit from online ticketing?

All of them! More and more events are choosing to switch all or part of their physical ticketing to online ticketing. Cultural, professional and sports events undertook this transition several years ago, and more recently theme parks, tourist activities and exhibitions have chosen to develop effective online ticketing systems with Weezevent. The adjustability of online ticketing means that all kinds of organisers can set it up.

2. Why are new types of events making the transition?

Events that traditionally operated with on-site box offices have opted to move towards online ticketing to avoid gatherings of people at points of sale, limit physical contact with their staff and make the buying process smoother. All it took was a few days — or a few weeks, depending on the scenario — for them to change their practices and satisfy their attendees. Some went from an entirely physical ticketing service to an advanced system thanks to Weezevent’s ergonomic solutions.

3. Choose the right solution for your needs

Why did the Deauville-Clairefontaine Racecourse, the Reynou Zoo, the Christian Dior Museum in Granville and the GENESIS exhibition (Sebastião Salgado) recently choose Weezevent to create their online ticketing service?

The first reason is simplicity of use for attendees. Members of the public can make their ticket purchases in just a few clicks thanks to a simplified process, on the device of their choice and through a responsive interface, with no need to create an account on the organiser’s website.

On the organiser’s side, the ticketing service is easy to configure. The access control tools are reliable and easy to grasp for staff. Used by more than 200 festivals to scan millions of tickets every year, our scanning devices perform flawlessly.

Finally, the assistance provided by Weezevent’s advisors and technicians guarantees incomparable human support to organisers embarking on the modernisation of their customer experience.

4. Configure your ticketing options

Opting for an all-in-one online ticketing service offers a multitude of options which you can choose whether to use depending on the sales scenario. Organisers who switch from on-site ticketing to online ticketing use different options depending on their needs and their audiences’ buying habits:

  • Dated or undated tickets;
  • Several rates depending on the audience;
  • Adjustability thanks to sessions;
  • Information form;
  • Promotion code.

5. A system adapted to free registration

‘Online ticketing’ doesn’t always rhyme with ‘online ticket sales’. This system can also be useful for distributing free tickets or access to an event or venue, or for collecting registrations. More and more organisations come to Weezevent to control their events’ capacity. By combining a registration module with quota limitation and an access control system, organisers can easily limit the number of people accessing a specific area. They can monitor in real time the number of registrations before the event and the number of people entering at the time of the event.

Weezevent has already equipped more than 200,000 events with its solutions for online ticketing, access control, cashless payment and CRM. Why wait to do the same? Click on the button below to discover all our features and create your first online ticketing service in just a few clicks:
