Self-service event ticketing platform Eventbrite has launched a self-service reserved seating solution, allowing delegates to pick their own seats.
The new solution is available to all organisers free of cost.
The company hopes its new solution will open up opportunities with more types of events and venues in the future, including comedy shows, conferences, galas, performing arts and spectator sports.
“We are focused on addressing the biggest problems organisers and attendees face: lack of innovation, customer support, and high ticketing fees,” said Eventbrite CEO and founder, Kevin Hartz. “Reserved seating has been broken for years, and we are replacing it with simple, yet robust technology.”
At the core of Eventbrite’s reserved seating solution is Eventbrite’s Seat Designer, an intuitive browser based interface that provides organisers with drag and drop seat planning.
Since 2006, Eventbrite claims it has helped event organisers make up to £2bn in gross ticket sales, with over 200m tickets processed on the platform.
