Likelihood to Recommend

Brown Paper Tickets

For non-profits running free trainings, Brown Paper Ticket is great because there are no fees for using the service for this, whereas most other event registration software charges a per transaction fee. I wouldn't recommend it if you are hosting a conference or other event where there are breakout sessions that you need to register people for.

Vendini

For smaller sports organizations or event productions Vendini is appropriate. It is also better suited for venues where the inventory is primarily general admission or very basic section/row/seat. The platform does not allow for much seating customization on the user's end. I would definitely not recommend Vendini for larger venues.

Vendini

  • System is often very slow.
  • Limited user ability to customize ticket promotions within the platform.
  • Major issue - not friendly with certain firewalls. Iona received dozens of phone calls this year from fans unable to purchase tickets online because Vendini changed something which made the platform blocked by several servers being used by fans.

Alternatives Considered

Brown Paper Tickets

I have used Bloomerang's event management option, which is not very easy to use or pliable when it comes to customization.Evite - not professional enoughRegonline - not very user friendly and the fees are a bit high.Qgiv - Very easy to use and has great reporting. However, there is a fee to use it for free events.

Vendini

I've used ProVenue in the professional sports world (working with the NY Mets). ProVenue has drastically more capabilities and is a much more powerful system than Vendini, but such capabilities would not be necessary for smaller arenas or productions

Return on Investment

Brown Paper Tickets

  • Brown Paper Tickets has given us a free and easy to use option to register people for free trainings which has helped us cut our costs for these types of events.

Vendini

  • Allowed Iona to compare YOY sales and attendance figures. Something we were not able to do before.
  • We have been able to create events from remote locations (i.e. conference tournament bus trip ticket sales). The ability to just set up an event from wherever one can access the internet is very convenient and has increased our ticket sales for certain events.
  • The Vendini reporting has increased the efficiency of internal and external audits when it comes to ticket sales and revenue.
