Twitter provides a great avenue for people to discuss various topics and give input on what their stance on a particular subject is. Recently, various members of the ticketing industry held a discussion on Twitter about paperless ticketing. #Ticketchat was used as the hashtag for the conversation, allowing people to follow the comments in real-time.
Some of the concerns brought up about paperless ticketing in the chat revolved around ticketing systems and the fact that many systems restrict fans from giving their tickets to someone else. However, Venues Today’s Dave Brooks (@venues2dave) was quick to point out that Flash Seats®, the Veritix paperless ticketing platform, allows transferability.
“Well #paperlessticketing has to be transferable @veritix gets this. Until you can share tix, people won’t adopt #ticketchat” – @venues2dave
With the “Transfer” feature, fans electronically send their tickets to other people by simply entering the recipient’s email address. The recipient then creates an account and adds an electronic ID to swipe on the day of the event. It’s just that easy.
We are happy that the ticketing industry is engaging in discussions about paperless ticketing systems and raising important issues, and we are pleased that Flash Seats is recognized as a fan-friendly system.
