While the ticketing features you rely on will play a huge role in getting your live events back on track this year, there’s also a ton of onsite and online features you can incorporate into event day to really wow your attendees. From creating immersive on-site experiences, to simplifying purchase activities, Patron Technology’s family of products provides all the tools you need to take your event reopening strategy to a whole new level!
Streamline On-Site Purchases
Give your attendees the power to put the cash away and make purchases from concession stands, exhibitor booths, and merchandise vendors with a simple wave of their RFID wristband! With cashless payments, attendees can make fast, contact-free purchases with pre-loaded funds, speeding up the purchase process and reducing queuing times to keep the crowds moving. And if their funds happen to run low, attendees can simply add more at self-serve top up kiosks stationed throughout your entire event.
Empower your attendees to skip the lines entirely by including a mobile ordering option within your event app. After placing an order, customers can pick up their concessions or merch directly from the vendor when it’s ready, for a more convenient experience for all!
Add Engaging Experiences
Self-Serve Media Activations
In between your scheduled event content, what’s more fun for attendees than an interactive photo booth, scan-to-win games or another engaging experience to occupy their time? Create gamified experiences throughout your event venue that give your attendees an unforgettable event experience even without staff assistance. For example: use your event’s dedicated mobile app to host a digital scavenger hunt where attendees can earn points and win prizes by visiting certain locations across your venue or completing specific activities during your event!
Vendor Lead Capture
With RFID lead capture, attendees can leave a “digital business card” with the vendors and exhibitors they’re most excited to learn more about with just a swipe of their badge or wristband. There’s no easier way for fans and vendors to build valuable connections while maintaining safety and distance!
Connect Beyond In-Person
Open up your in-person experience to an even wider audience by incorporating live streaming! Sell tickets for gated, ticket-buyer-only access to streams of your main stage performances or highly-anticipated speaker sessions so audiences from around the world can join in the fun alongside your in-person attendees, expanding your reach and increasing overall revenue!
Video On Demand
Streaming options aren’t just great for viewers joining from home. Storing live sessions as on demand content enables even your in-person attendees to never miss a second of the action if multiple performances or sessions overlap. Let registered attendees access recorded content for a set amount of time to get the most out of your event experience!
Virtual Meet & Greets
For events like conventions, festivals, and expos, a fan-favorite component is always the ability to meet some of their favorite performers and celebrities up close. Luckily, these experiences can be just as engaging digitally! Use virtual meet & greets and one-on-one chats to build excitement leading up to your in-person reopening, or even as an additional engagement option for at-home attendees.
