The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is the best event in the North for any self-respecting petrol head. It's a weekend crammed with exhilarating motorsport, air displays, watersports and live music concerts. So, we were delighted when we were asked to design and build a new website and ticket sales system for the event.
Custom Ticketing System
We created a custom ticketing system which allows CPOP to set up a variety of ticket options. This is integrated with CPOP's ticket printer and also bar code scanning equipment for use on entry to the event.
Feel The Buzz
During the run up to the event, the site is constantly updated with the latest news and announcements. We've also integrated social media into the site so that fan Tweets can be shown on the site too.
Mobile Ticket Sales
Buying tickets for CPOP has never been easier thanks to our fully responsive website. This makes buying tickets from your smartphone, tablet or computer a cinch.
The bespoke ticketing system was created from the ground up based on CPOP's requirements. First of all, the website allows tickets to be sold online in a wide variety of options. Tools in the admin system let CPOP create ticket types in combinations of attributes such as the number of days, whether concerts are included, camping options and so on. We also added in discounting options that allow CPOP to run special promotions in conjunction with their partners or on the website.
The ticketing system also has printing and fulfillment features that allow CPOP to print their own tickets in-house and then track orders as they're sent out. Each ticket is assigned a unique barcode which is then scanned on dispatch and also on entry to the event using hand-held barcode scanners on the gates.
CPOP had 40,000 visitors through the gates over 3 days in 2014 all with tickets managed by our system.
