Client spotlight: Tibbs Drive-In Theatre

Client spotlight: Tibbs Drive-In Theatre

These retro theatres are a classic part of American film culture and were a staple of post-war entertainment, with over 4,000 theatres in the US by the 1950’s. This tailed off down to as low as 317 theatres in 2019, but even before the pandemic hit business was starting to boom again as an appetite for a nostalgic night out was coming back into fashion.

Now that more time has passed, and timelines are starting to become a bit clearer, it’s leading organisers of conferences and other business events to ask – what’s next, and how can I start generating revenue?

Ticketing required to safely open churches whilst social distancing measures remain

Many churches and places of worship have had to close their doors for the first time in centuries. Two World Wars didn’t manage to stop worshipers, but unfortunately with social distancing measures and the lockdown taking hold, churches could no longer safely open.

As Bishops, Imams, Rabbis and Priests begin to consider their plans, it’s becoming clearer that online ticketing is going to play a crucial role in helping places of worship reopen safely.
