Vendini Introduces Web Marketing and Ticket Sales Upgrades

Advanced Technology Makes Selling Tickets and Engaging Ticket Buyers a Breeze for Venues

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Today Vendini introduced new upgrades to its event ticketing and logistics software, significantly enhancing the ticket buying experience with marketing and social media solutions, to make selling more tickets a snap. The announcement was made at INTIX's 34th annual conference and exhibition, a premier industry event for entertainment ticketing professionals.

"We're constantly innovating here at Vendini. We're having fun creating solutions that make it extremely simple for venues to sell more tickets and sustain solid relationships with their patrons," said Mark Tacchi, CEO. "This latest round of updates brings professional tools that turbocharge your website, social marketing efforts, and ticket sales."

Vendini SiteLine delivers venues a complete modern website that ties into the venue's ticketing system. Events are automatically published when events are created, saving time and eliminating the need to send code or links to a webmaster. Social media integration makes it simple for ticket buyers to quickly share via social media. Vendini SiteLine websites are search engine optimized, appearing at the top of Google searches and are also mobile optimized, ensuring Vendini SiteLine websites can be comfortably viewed on any device.

"Vendini SiteLine is user friendly for staff and patrons. We build rapport with patrons through a great experience online," said Jessica Schulz of Spokane Children's Theatre. "And we were shocked by the 60% increase in our online ticket sales since moving to Vendini."

Vendini Sales on Facebook enables venues to sell tickets directly from their Facebook pages. The application is fully integrated with the Vendini event ticketing system so venues can sell tickets via Facebook with just a few clicks. Vendini Sales on Facebook is designed to increase sales through a streamlined user experience and ticket buying process within the Facebook page.

Vendini TicketLine is newly optimized for maximum website ticket sales. Patron data and sales history is collected without requiring an additional login, a feature that boosts sales conversions. Vendini is also one of the only providers that is PCI Level One compliant, and Vendini TicketLine provides a consistent user experience across all devices (mobile, tablet, desktop) and on Facebook.

"Our Vendini SiteLine site looks great and it just works. Our website is mobile and search engine optimized, so we don't sweat the technical details," said Adam Powers of Elbo Room in Chicago. "Vendini is built with the best technology."
