If you’re looking to drive pre-event revenue for your upcoming festival, selling products alongside your online ticket sales is a great way to do this. Not only will offering add-ons like apparel and after-party passes boost your bottom line, it will also add convenience for you and your buyers, and help you better prepare for onsite merch inventory needs. Check out our event experts’ ideas for merchandise to offer along with your festival tickets!
