Innovations Unveiled at INTIX, the Premier Industry Event for Ticketing Professionals
CHICAGO, IL and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 2014) - Vendini, the company that makes the business of live events simple, kicked off INTIX's 35th annual conference today with the debut of several new easy-to-use advancements to its comprehensive ticketing and events system.
Vendini's announcements include enhancements to Vendini Siteline. Vendini SiteLine quickly and cost effectively provides venues with a complete website that fully integrates with their ticketing system. Enhanced search engine optimization means Vendini SiteLine websites hit the top of Google search engines, and are also fully integrated with social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Foursquare, and Yelp. To make live events simpler, Vendini SiteLine makes it easier for Vendini members to make changes to content on their website, has more available widgets, and is responsive across more platforms with its newly added tablet size support.
"Thanks to Vendini SiteLine, our website is now much easier to maintain," said Darren Lee Cole, manager of the Soho Playhouse in New York City. "It's also automatically mobile optimized which means we are communicating more effectively with our customers who are increasingly using mobile devices to search for their entertainment options and purchase tickets for shows and events."
"It's incredible. We've got customers using Vendini SiteLine experiencing a dramatic 20% increase in their online box office sales. The power of Vendini SiteLine is automatic search engine optimization, smartphone and mobile friendly displays for patrons purchasing tickets on the go, and an overall intuitive user experience," said Vendini's CEO Mark Tacchi.
Directors at Thalian Hall Center for the Performing Arts, Inc. in Wilmington, NC, were able to double their projected ticket sales in the first four months of using a Vendini SiteLine website.
"Vendini SiteLine has become a catalyst in the success of our organization," said Gary Tucker, Thalian Hall marketing director.
Also new for Vendini is the iPad version of TicketAgent, the world's simplest way to sell tickets on the go. TicketAgent is available as a free download in the Apple App Store for Vendini members. Venues can grab their iPod, iPhone OR iPad and take their box office any place at any time, such as selling community theater tickets at local art fair.
"The iPad version of TicketAgent is empowering because it gives venues the freedom to sell anywhere and engage customers when it's most convenient for the customer to buy," Tacchi said.
In keeping with its "making live events simple" mission, Vendini is also offering its customers Infinea Tab credit card swipers, scanners and stands for the iPad and iPad mini from Infinite Peripherals.
