Timed Ticketing

Control venue capacity and the flow of patrons entering. Timed ticketing allows you to organize tickets into conditional categories, designated by specific times of entry. This helps regulate the flow of patrons through any venue – reducing long lines and overcrowding – which improves customer experience while increasing the ability to track admissions.

Try it for yourself!

Events within events

Sell a general entry ticket with selectable time-frame within which patrons can attend a special exhibit or tour.

Time-Slot Availability

Time slot management gives you the ability to view, track, and edit ticket availability in real-time from a time blocked interface.

Simple Checkout

Switch to an optional simplified timed ticket purchase process per event, with a clear three step flow to select a date, time, and tickets.

Sell with GA tickets

Timed tickets can be priced and sold separately from general admission tickets, or along side your GA tickets to increase buying options.

Benefits
  • Automatically prevents customers from purchasing tickets to events that overlap in duration.
  • The check-in management tool allows staff to view guest lists for each time-slot, helping avoid hang-ups caused by misplaced or damaged tickets.
  • Create time schedule templates in advance for recurring events. Duplicated as-needed, or set on auto-repeat status.
  • General admission and timed entry are accounted for by a single ticket, but data can be generated for each admission separately.
  • Timed ticketing is supported by VBO Tickets' portable Ticket Kiosk, which alleviates box office congestion by offering a self-service option for patrons.
Use Cases
  • Capacity control: Any venue or establishment in need of regulating the flow of visitors can use timed ticketing to limit the number of entries at any given time.
  • Museums: Conditionally allow ticket buyers to purchase an optional exhibit ticket only after they have selected a primary timed ticket.
  • Attraction Tours: Set up a special event within a primary event, utilizing conditional timed tickets.
  • Party Venues: Large venues accepting multiple parties can sell a primary timed entry ticket, and optional sub tickets for activities or rooms to be booked within the space.
