Are you in the midst of a search for an incredible online ticket booking system that offers your performing arts organization all of the features that you need at a price that you can afford? Look no further – I’m here to help!

This is my fourth instalment in a review of online ticket booking systems. So far we’ve taken a look at Eventbrite, Brown Paper Tickets, and Vendini. Today we’ll be focussing on San Francisco-based ticketing company, Ticketfly.

With an aim to make it “easy to discover events, buy tickets, and share events with your friends – all with world-class technology and customer support,” Ticketly has been tackling the event ticketing industry one acquisition at a time since it’s inception in 2009. Last week I wrote of their recent Canadian acquisition of Northern Tickets, so I figured it was prime time to take a closer look at how they operate and what they’re offering their venue and promoter partners.

Once again, the secondary ticketing market is causing problems for true fans and music lovers around the globe. Of course, the nature of supply and demand will often leave would-be concertgoers disappointed when they can’t secure tickets to their favorite act; however, it’s an entirely different matter when purchased tickets become re-released into secondary ticketing markets only moments after the show is announced as “sold out.”

As we previously mentioned, choosing an online ticketing platform can be a difficult task. Finding the right fit for your community or high school theater means knowing exactly what you need (and don’t need), and finding this within your target price-range. It’s also especially important to look at the needs of your customers, and find a solution that will help them purchase more tickets to your fabulous events.

Up next in our online ticketing system series is Brown Paper Tickets. This company has a history spanning over a decade and originally came into being as a response to the exorbitant processing and service fees charged by Ticketmaster. Actually, in an interview with Seattle Business Mag Brown Paper Ticketing CEO, Steve Butcher, mentioned that the 2009 merger between Ticketmaster and Live Nation helped to shape and mold BPT into the company that it is today – a company focused on providing a ticketing option with lower processing fees.

What was once a fringe-style event held in the middle of the desert has now turned into a hugely popular mainstream weeklong event that is especially popular among many members of the tech community. Unfortunately, last week rumors swept multiple social media outlets when the Burning Man ticket sale was reportedly hacked.

Burning Man ticket sales began on Wednesday February 18th at noon PST and sold out 40,000 tickets and 12,000 vehicle passes in less than an hour. There were almost 80,000 people registered for the sale, and with each registrant able to purchase 2 tickets and 1 vehicle pass that meant that only the first 20,000 buyers would be guaranteed tickets. So how did this sale get hacked? What is Burning Man doing about this?
