There's nothing worse on site than hungry crew.
Ok, there are worse things, but you definitely, really don't want your crew going hungry if you can help it.
If you're reading this you probably already know that eventree is probably the most reliable way to redeem crew meals on site. The entire system was built over years in the mud
The fact is that when you're putting on a world-class event it takes a lot of hard work. On site there are lots of hungry mouths to feed, and making sure you're equipped to do this requires a lot of preparation in advance.
There are lots of systems which claim to make managing crew meals easier, but we believe eventree
It seems that almost everyone who uses our event management platform has a different name for it:

- The TTS Crew System
This extends to our own staff, many of whom are often unsure what to refer to it as. Its official name has always been TheTicketSellers: Crew System and
How do you feed 5000 people three times a day on a festival site? How do you cater for 40,000 covers over ten days without completely losing your mind? How do you make sure you're feeding the right people - and only the right people - when there's a queue of hungry crew lining up for breakfast?
During discussions when planning events it's easy to focus on getting people in to the event in the first place. Reducing queuing times whilst still providing adequate security checks is a challenge which isn't going to go away any time soon.
But for another challenge, namely how to control the flow of customers out of - and back into -
At 6am on 11th June, blinking in the crisp, early morning Birmingham air, our events team lugged bags of gear into the back of the X5. Despite being a decent sized 4x4, the car was soon full to the brim with camping gear, entry equipment, food, water, oh, and the team. They were off to Eden Festival where we'd been
One of the most frequent pieces of feedback we've received about our Crew system is how time consuming it can be to move tickets around the event. Due to the way that events are configured in a hierarchy, distributing tickets to groups at the lowest levels was always ... well, a bit of a pain, if we're honest.

Last weekend, 23rd-24th May, Birmingham Pride 2015 took place under the glorious spring sunshine in the heart of England's second city.
The Hurst Street area was transformed into a shimmering array of colours, costumes and colourful characters as first the parade, then the celebrations, and finally the partying took place.
Amidst the good natured fun nestled our dedicated events team,
As many of you know, event organisers have a legal responsibility to manage the number of people on site in accordance with the terms of their license. So it's really important that everyone on site is issued with a ticket.
This is where our Crew system comes in. Designed by people intimately familiar with the inner workings of festivals (and
When we started this blog we knew it couldn't all be dry, densely-written articles about finding apps on your iPhone. There has to be some fun too. And that really sums up the atmosphere in TheTicketSellers' HQ here in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. Whilst we work hard, and thanks to our exceptionally talented team, deliver results at a phenomenal pace,
We're proud of the TTS Crew system - and with good reason. Some of the best and brightest festivals in the UK (including Boomtown, Shambala, Secret Garden Party, Port Elliot Festival, Bearded Theory and Birmingham Pride) use it to manage staff at their events. We make no apology for the very specific nature of this post which will mostly appeal
