Integrate your events with Calendar View
Have you got a lot of events taking place over several days?
Sometimes, it can be tricky for customers to find which one they are looking for. Especially if each listing has the same picture.
If customers are having trouble finding the event they want to buy tickets for, they might click away. This can end up with you losing out on conversions or having to deal with calls from angry customers.
However, we’ve got a solution.
Our Calendar View. It allows you to group events together, meaning your customer can click one button, find their event and buy tickets. The process is made easier for them, and as the need to click away is gone, there is less of a chance you’ll miss out on the conversion.

Is Ibiza still a global trendsetter for dance music?
“It’s not what it used to be.”
Whether you’re a club promoter, punter, industry head or just someone into music, it’s a phrase you’ve probably heard.
In fact, we reckon that if you had a pound for every time you’ve heard it, you’d have no problem landing the knockout booking you’ve always dreamed of.
We do understand why people might say the phrase, though.
When you’re young, excited and desperate to be anywhere from your hometown, the grip of the Balearic beat is strong. We all hold formative memories in high esteem.
So, was Ibiza really better back in the day? Is it still a global trendsetter?
We went in-depth on the subject over on the Promotion Centre blog recently, analysing the stats whilst taking into account the International Music Summit, held on the island each year, and, of course, the music.

Highest Point raises thousands for charity partners
Following a knockout weekend of sun and unparalleled live music from Anne-Marie, Hacienda Classical, Bastille, Turno, and many more, the Highest Point team has counted the funds raised for its charity partners during the 4-day event.
Highest Point Festival partnered up with St John’s Hospice, Team Reece, and Thumbs Up For Charlie for its 2023 edition. Over the course of the festival, including box office, online donations, and contributions from VIP ticket sales, the festival raised £5,563.00 to be split between the charities.
Lisa from St John’s Hospice said: “Between Team Reece and St John’s Hospice, the event raised almost £9,000 which is incredible!. This includes the money the teams made by raising donations from the festival’s attendees during the weekend.”
Rachel O’Neil, Reece’s mum and founder of Team Reece Children’s Brain Tumour & Cancer Charity, added, “Team Reece is truly honoured by the positive response from the festival. This is an amazing opportunity for us as this all began as a tribute. The money raised through the festival will help continue us to support children battling with cancer and local families facing child loss in any form.“
