For over a decade, Skiddle.com has provided one of the best loved events listing and ticket sales platforms in the UK. This platform has now been developed to incorporate a simple online event registration solution, facilitating organisers of free-to-attend events, guest list only events, as well as corporate functions such as conferences and exhibitions to offer their event goers a market leading ticketing solution.
Over the years, Skiddle has sold tickets for every kind of event imaginable, covering everything from major festivals, clubs and exhibitions through to parish fetes! The live events industry has changed considerably over this time period and Skiddle’s Promotion Centre has been continuously evolved to meet the ever changing demands of the sector.
These changes have included the significant growth of the free-to-attend events and controlled list (or guestlist) events. Event promoters are now able to use Skiddle to enable free registration to their events either on a first-come-first-served basis, open to all service or through a logged in facility allowing the event promoter to control those who are able to register for the event.
This password protected ticket solution also enables promoters to add special offer tickets, and restricted tickets which can be used to register tickets for specific groups such as children, disabled tickets or press. This can be either be one-off (once used, they are invalid) or re-usable which so can be used in promotional material such as display advertising.
Skiddle’s Technical Director, Ben Sebborn, commented on the new development: “We’ve had an increasing number of event organisers request we create an online registration service and we’re confident with this new development, Skiddle’s Promotion Centre will retain its market leading status for online event listing and registration.”
This move is the latest in a series of ground breaking developments made by the event listings and promotion team at Skiddle, of which recent developments include solutions such as white-labelled ticket solutions as well as the fist Facebook Timeline Integrated Ticket Shop.
Elaborating, Sebborn said: “The live events market is massive and Skiddle has been at the forefront of offering event promotion solutions for a long time now. With the addition of this sophisticated free registration facility we are opening up Skiddle to a new range of event promoters and event goers, whilst clearly signalling our intention to continue our dominance through market leading technology driven solutions.”
Explaining the decision to launch this new functionality now, Rich Dyer, Skiddle’s Ticketing Director explained: “We all know how important the Christmas and New Year period is to the events industry, and that’s why our R&D team have worked so hard in developing our ticket engine to get this new functionality out in time for the surge in event listings we see at this time of year.”
