Your favourite artist is in town and the tickets are on sale online, so you bought your tickets and they were sent to your email. Let’s fast-forward to the concert day, and you’re in the queue to get into the venue, frantically searching through your email for your ticket. You get to the front of the queue and you’re asked to step aside because you can’t find your ticket. That’s what happens when you don’t have a mobile ticket.
In today's fast-paced digital world, smartphones have become an essential part of our lives, and event ticketing has moved with the times. The days of paper tickets and long queues at event entrances are over, because mobile tickets provide a seamless and convenient experience for both event organizers and attendees. In this blog post, we’ll explore what a mobile ticket is and why it’s a win-win for everyone at an event.
What is a mobile ticket?
To put it simply, mobile tickets are tickets that are stored on your mobile phone. Before now, you’ve probably bought physical tickets to an event and had to present them at the venue, or you’ve bought tickets online and had to search through your email so they can be scanned. With mobile tickets, they’re found directly on your Tix app. So your phone is your ticket.
Why should you use a mobile ticket?
Mobile ticketing is the best option for everyone in the event equation. Event organizers benefit from their event check-in queues moving faster and being more organized, and event attendees can check into events much quicker with mobile tickets. These are just a few benefits, so let’s dive into more reasons why you should encourage your attendees to use mobile tickets on the Tix app!
1. Streamlined Ticketing Process
Mobile tickets eliminate the need for printing and distributing physical tickets. This helps to save time, energy, and money for you as an event organizer if you sell your tickets online on Tix, and encourage your attendees to buy tickets to your event on the Tix app. You can also effortlessly manage ticket sales through the Tix app. On the Tix web app, with just a few clicks, your event can be created and published for potential attendees to see!
2. Enhanced Ticket Security
Mobile tickets offer advanced security features, reducing the risk of ticket fraud and transfer of tickets. Each event attendee can log in to their Tix app with their email and password, and find tickets they’ve bought on Tix in the ‘tickets’ section of the app. The ticket QR code found on the app is unique to that attendee’s ticket and can’t be faked or replicated. This makes it easier for you to validate tickets at your event entrance, ensuring only genuine attendees gain access. This not only enhances security but also creates a sense of trust and reliability for both organizers and attendees.
And if you’re an event attendee reading this, here are some reasons why you should download the Tix app and use mobile tickets yourself.
