We all love summer. It’s a lazy (but very busy) time of year filled with accidental sunburns, exposed toes, longer days… but best of all, its festival season! ShowClix is proud to be one of the leading ticketing systems for the best beer, wine, food, and music festivals around the world. We’ve helped to support hundreds of festivals over the years, which often results in a resounding, “See you next year!”
Just recently, the awesome 2012 Omaha Beer Fest took place, so we asked Urban Events, Inc. about their event. Click to read more!
Omaha Beer Fest created a survey and asked for attendees for feedback after the event took place, and one of the questions asked in the survey was how long the wait in line was for admissions during the event. According to the results, Axess was able to help nearly three-quarters of the attendees through the entrance in under 10 minutes!
We all know that waiting in line in the hot sun is no fun, so fast ticket scanners can really make the difference between long, stagnant lines and a great, memorable event experience.
Jen Kocher, Executive Producer of Urban Events, Inc., noted that she was “very pleased” with the check-in times, “considering the lines wrapped around the block.”
The event organizers activated mobile tickets as an option for the attendees at the Omaha Beer Fest, which even prompted some customers to remark how “cool” it was to scan tickets straight from their phones. Mobile tickets are sent directly to a customer’s smart phone one day before the event, so — if they choose the option — they won’t have to scramble for a printer or worry about carrying an extra sheet of paper to the event. Most importantly, these tickets can be scanned just the same as any paper tickets.
We’ll be partnering with Urban Events, Inc. once again this August for the exciting Riverfront Wine Festival. If you missed out on this year’s Beer Fest in Omaha, then be sure to get your tickets now.
Our easy ticketing system is perfect for festivals and large crowds no matter what time of year! With a mobile box office, super-fast ticket scanning, and easy to use interface, ticketing your festival will be a breeze. So if you are looking to plan your next big summer festival, see why ShowClix should be a part of the process.
