General Admission Events

If your event is general admission, all you have to do is to reduce your Price Level's capacity to ensure that you are not selling tickets over what your venue can accommodate considering the safe distancing.

Assigned Seat Events

If your event is assigned seat with an amphitheater style seating or a round-table (dinner style) seating, you may need to add some empty seats between each attending party.

To do so go to the 'Edit Event' page for the event, go to 'Tickets Tab' and set the 'Seats between each party' to the number of seats you need to leave between each party to adhere to safe distancing. When the buyer tries to purchase the tickets, the system will consider those extra seats and automatically enforce that while helping the buyer in selecting their seats.

If you need to leave vacant rows between parties, for example you want to leave one row vacant after each row, simply do not add tickets for those rows. In other words, add tickets to row 1 and 3 but don't add tickets to row 2 and 4.

Capacity Cap

In all type of events, you can specify a maximum capacity to ensure not more than certain number of tickets are sold across all the price levels and regardless of the seating arrangement.

To do so go to the 'Edit Event' page for the event, go to 'Tickets Tab' and set the 'Capacity Cap' to the maximum number of tickets you want to sell.

Outdoor Events

Considering the COVID-19 situation, it may be safer and less restricted to move the events outdoor, in a parks or an open area.

Taking the events outside of the theaters and auditoriums with standard pre-defined seating charts, requires a ticketing system that allows you to build any custom seating chart in a timely and economic manner

Ticketor's state-of-the-art Seating Chart Designer Tool, allows you to build any seating chart including the theater-style, round-table, night-club style or any combination of them, in minutes and for free.

Take advantage of this valuable feature and consider planning outdoor events to combat the COVID19 restrictions.
