A successful consumer show starts with great marketing, good planning and aggressive ticket sales. The ticketing services team is here from the beginning of the ticket planning process through event settlement.
You work with both your event manager and guest services manager to pass along pertinent information such as your pricing structure, discounts, coupons, special promos, complimentary ticket needs, and day-of-event sales. We work with you on scheduling the box office hours.
Onsite ticket sales
Tickets are sold onsite using a computerized ticketing system. This provides you and your buyers with event customized tickets, real time sales figures, flexibility to add last minute discounts or specials, and ticket scanning for quick, easy entry. OCC provides scanners at no cost.
We also provide complete daily audit reports and collection and return of all coupons and passes collected at the gate. A dedicated ticket supervisor is assigned to you and your show along with an appropriate number of ticket sellers.
Advance ticket sales
“Since we started working strategically with TicketsWest, our advance ticket sales have jumped and sales of our VIP experiences are strong.”
– Steve Woolard, Spring Beer and Wine Festival
