As part of this year’s Showman’s Show, Vision: 2025 brought together festival organisers and suppliers all striving to make positive changes towards a more sustainable future for the event industry.
Our very own Mo Jones attended and not only took part on the round table talks and debates for the future of our industry but also highlighted how TheTicketSellers is helping festivals and events be more sustainable.
By developing bespoke software tools in-house, our platforms encourage customers to consider sustainability during the ticket buying process and help events achieve enhanced green creds.
TheTicketSellers’ platform allows refundable deposits to be built into the checkout process, either per-ticket or per-customer when tickets are bought. These deposits are then returned on site or swapped for festival goodies when bags of recycling are brought to the redemption team – with a scan of the wristband or ticket to avoid duplication, our platform captures the info for a seamless audit.
We are also the only ticketing agency globally to offer Energy Revolution’s Carbon Calculator tool as an integrated feature on the ticket buying page. Organisers can choose to include this as part of the ticket selling process which then encourages customers to make a donation and turn their travel emissions into clean energy. In 2018, donations equated to 661,000 miles of travel to and from the UK festivals - with 100% of funds going directly to renewable energy projects.
