Today’s Tickets: Everything You Need to Know!
So another batch of tickets go on sale at 6pm this evening; Hope you’re ready for it!
We have a bit of info about the system and the TicketABC site that we’re using. We strongly recommend you read this thoroughly, to avoid any confusion or mistakes that could prevent you from getting tickets today. Here you go!
- There are 2,000 tickets on sale today at sitc-event.co.uk. There WILL be more tickets available after this batch has sold out, but they will not go on sale until January 2014 (which is also when we will release single-day tickets).
- Tickets have been capped to maximum 4 per purchase. This based on the average group size attending SitC 2013 and ensures a fair system (and also stops people from buying a load and selling them on for profit later). If you plan to come with a larger group, it’s your responsibility to make plans for separate purchases.
- We will announce on Twitter when this batch of tickets have officially sold out, so keep an eye on that.
- Merchandise bundles will also be available for an additional £13! Price includes a SitC t-shirt, a wristband and postage.
- When purchasing, you’ll be given the option to sign up for a TicketABC account. You do NOT have to do this; We recommend that you don’t register if you wish to proceed with the checkout rapidly. There’s not really any benefit, and most of our successful purchases last week were without accounts.
- There is a queue system on the site that limits how many transactions can be processed at a single time. This is a way of ensuring the site servers are not overloaded and don’t crash.
- The queue will reserve your position, which is moving forward with every purchase; Don’t refresh the page. Refreshing puts you to the back again! Just be patient :)
- A few people told us they didn’t get through with having the site open on multiple tabs and devices. That’s because each additional tab or device opened would have created a new ticket position, which actually puts you to the back and doesn’t help you at all. It also limits the positions available for other people, so we ask that you please do not do this. There is no benefit to this once you are already in the ticket queue on one tab/device.
- By entering the queue, you are confirming that you are aware it does not guarantee you a purchase, if tickets do sell out ahead of you. We heard from a couple of people who had waited and were unsuccessful last week; we hope that by selling twice as many this week we can dispel that a little, but it is your own responsibility to recognise and honour the first-come-first-served system.
Best of luck!
