SOLD. OUT. EVENT. Three words that can make an event presenter’s day. Though this is easier said than done, a few elements can boost your chances to sell out your event. Giving your audience the choice of multiple ticket types with our Flexi-Ticket Pricing is one of them. To make sure that you don’t get it wrong and end up confusing your potential attendees, here are the event seating options and combinations of ticket types that you could go for.
Event Seating Types To Boost Your Turnout
1. General Admission Seating
General Admission allows your attendees ease of entry to the event and the seating is usually on a first-come, first-serve basis. Hence, while there are seats for every attendee, it isn’t fixed as in reserved seating. It is one of the most common ticket types that an attendee can choose to buy anytime.
When to Use General Admission Seating
General admission can be used for any type of event as they are usually less expensive than reserved seating tickets. It is suitable for attendees on a budget, letting them enjoy the show without having to burn a hole in the pocket. With our ticketing platform, you also have an option to hold general admission tickets for special guests from the Virtual Box Office.
2. Reserved Seating
Reserved seating, on the other hand, lets your attendees choose their seats and sections from the event seating map available on your Online Ticket Store while booking their tickets. When you create a pool of reserved seating tickets, your attendees don’t have to rush to reserve their preferred seats. They can arrive at the venue stress-free and the best part is reserved seating allows them to select the VIP seats at a higher price.
When to Use Reserved Seating
Reserved seating works best for sporting events, live concerts, clubs to name a few. If your event is a seating event, it allows your attendees to sit back and enjoy the performance.
Also, consider the age of your attendees when choosing your seating arrangement or you can end up ruining their experience. Whether it’s an international film festival or a theatrical drama, you can offer multiple ticket types and let your attendees enjoy the performance from their choice of seat.
Ticket Types To Boost Your Event Turnout
