Open your in-person events!

Manage event capacity with ease.

   Timed Entry

Control capacity at individual time slots and always know who is in attendance. By managing entrance times to your event, you can stagger admissions to ensure social distancing and set dedicated cleaning and sanitizing times throughout the day.

   Reserved Seating

Build out an exact replica of your venue and enable customers to select their seats ahead of time. Group seats together and require customers to purchase entire blocks to keep interaction between parties to a minimum.

   General Admission

Set up tables for your venue and require attendees to reserve an entire table when they purchase tickets to your event. Once they arrive, attendees can claim a table on a first-come-first-served basis.

Create a contactless event experience.

 Admissions

Get attendees into your event safely and quickly with touchless admissions technology. Empower your staff to easily scan in QR codes, or use RFID technology to admit customers with a wave of their wristband or badge. 

 Registration

Strengthen your contact tracing efforts by encouraging every attendee to register early for your event so you can collect more data and contact them afterwards with any important health information. Plus, you can add required waivers directly into your pre-event registration.

 Mobile Ordering

Enable attendees to order and pay for concessions from your app. After they place their order, attendees can pick it up directly from the vendor, skipping the lines and stay socially distanced throughout the entire process.

 Cashless Payments

Empower your customers to make purchases with a wave of their RFID wristband, and reduce queuing across your event. With cashless payments, attendees can make purchases without physical interaction.

Stay in constant communication with attendees.

 Email Reminders

Share important information with your customers before, during, and after your event. Use our email reminder feature to alert your attendees 24 hours before your event of your onsite rules, safety regulations, and processes.

 Push Notifications

Deliver impactful messaging to attendees directly to their phones. During your event, use push notifications and proximity messaging to remind attendees of pertinent information based on their interests, location, and more through your app. 

 Post-Event Outreach

Take advantage of the attendee data collected before and during your event to send them targeted communications afterwards, like important health information, promotions for future events, and more. 

Maintain social distancing while fully immersing attendees.

   

Self-Serve Media Activations

Set up media activations and gamified experiences attendees can interact with without staff assistance. Offer games like digital scavenger hunts so attendees can earn points and win prizes, and set up onsite activations so they can take their own unique photos and videos

 Lead Capture

Allow customers to leave a “digital business card” with your sponsors and vendors with a wave of their RFID wristbands. You’ll capture attendee data throughout your entire event, so you know exactly who they are and what they’re interacting with. 

Expand your reach to worldwide audiences.

 Live Streaming

Deliver compelling content to worldwide attendees by live streaming your in-person event. If attendees can’t make it to your event, enable them to purchase access to your live stream to watch at their convenience.

 Virtual Meet & Greets

Give attendees the chance to meet their favorite celebrities from the comfort of their own home with virtual meet & greets. With powerful features like live celebrity chats and personalized videos, you’ll engage global audiences and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Know your attendees like never before. 

 Historical Data

Tap into your historical attendance data to help plan for your reopening. Learn high-traffic days and times and know which in-event experiences are most popular so you can better allocate resources and spread out attendee arrival times as needed. 

 Real-Time Insights

Ensure your event is always running smoothly with real-time data features. Get up-to-the-minute event updates sent to your phone, receive alerts when a certain number of attendees have been admitted or VIPs arrive, and view daily automated reports on your most important event data. 

Make Money Virtually in 2021

11 Ways for Event Organizers to Make Money Virtually in 2021

By David Kennedy | Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

Online formats offer endless possibilities for event organizers to monetize their event offering and reach larger audiences, so it’s the perfect opportunity to try out new revenue-driving strategies. Read on for our list of 11 ways event organizers can make money online in 2021 and beyond.

Creative Live Stream Content

Your paid live streams don’t have to stop with major event content. Think outside the box and offer exclusives like behind-the-scenes walk-throughs, backstage tours, and informal interviews with your talent or your event staff, to give an inside peek into your events.

Virtual Tipping

Accompany your live streams and other virtual content with the option for viewers to easily provide a monetary tip to your organization, talent, or staff, without ever having to leave your stream! Plus, collect data on who tips and when, and use this to influence future marketing efforts.

Donations

Fans and attendees know that many event organizations are coming off of a challenging year. Consider having a donation option on your ticket purchase page or as part of your live stream so your fans can easily help support your organization!

Video on Demand 

Your streams don’t have to be one-off experiences! Giving your ticket buyers the opportunity to view your pre-recorded performances, interviews, panels, or classes at any time in a video on demand format enables you to cater to an even wider audience, free of time restraints or scheduling limitations.

Meet & Greets

As a common feature of in-person concerts, conventions, and more, meet & greet opportunities can provide a valuable revenue stream. Offer virtual meet & greet sessions as a standalone experience or as part of a full online event, and work with celebrities, performers, and creators to provide face-to-face video chats between paying attendees and their idols!

Exclusive Merchandise

You can continue to turn your attendees into free brand ambassadors and grow your revenue by offering exclusive branded merchandise such as t-shirts, lanyards, hats, and more! Consider adding merchandise upsells to your online ticket checkout, or directly into your live stream page, adding convenience for your customers while they’re most engaged and helping you sell more merch overall.

Personalised Video Messages

Keep fans and their favorite celebrities, performers, and artists connected by selling personalized, pre-recorded video shoutouts. Invite fans to submit a form providing their name, contact information, and their video message request, and give your talent the ability to provide availability and specifics on the types of messages they’re open to, video length, and more!

Sponsorships

It’s important to explore sponsorships as a key revenue source, and hosting your event online provides many new sponsorship opportunities you can offer. From branded interactive games to sponsored exclusive watch parties, there are plenty of effective sponsorship opportunities for live streams!

Advertising

Pre-stream video messages, newsletter or live stream ad placements, mobile banner ads, and post-stream messaging are just a few examples of advertising options event organizers could sell to relevant, interested parties.

Presales for Future Events

You’re doing well with virtual events, but your team is starting to shift focus back to in-person experiences. Consider offering discounted pre-sales for your future in-person or hybrid events, giving excited attendees something to look forward to, and giving your organization a jump on that ticket revenue.

Hybrid Event Experiences

The perfect event experience isn’t online or in person; it’s both. When it’s safe and restrictions are lifted, reach a wider audience and make your experience accessible to anyone, anywhere, at any time by creating a hybrid event that takes the best elements from in-person and virtual events!

Accept donations and free registrations directly through your event listings.

 By Charlene McKenzie

With limited capacities and free registrations for your events/gatherings, we would like to offer you our software and platform to assist with further donations to your organisations as well to register attendances. Do you have a conference you want your employees to register for? Tixsa has the solution for you.

With our customisable donations feature, your customers can become benefactors in the exact same place they purchase tickets or register for a free event or gathering.

Offering the option to donate in your online checkout can make a big difference. In many cases, your customers are already purchasing tickets to your event, so there is a good chance that they will be interested in further supporting your organisation when given the option. Plus, instead of accepting donations separately, it is all in one transaction, convenient for you and your customers. Not to mention, processing all these transactions through the same system provides you with streamlined financial reporting options and gives your customers a familiar checkout experience when donating.

Within our Admin, you can easily enable donations as you create your event. Once you turn this feature on, customers will see a box encouraging them to “Make a Donation,” with the option for them to enter any dollar amount. You may also set a suggested donation amount, which will automatically be added to the donation box, while still allowing customers to raise or lower the amount. The amount will get added to their total and paid for in one transaction, but you will be able to use our reporting tools to see donations and ticket sales separately.
