Booking comps

We have created two: INDUSTRY2020A#r# for industry and X09JWOWSER for comps you want to book for other people.

Unlike other festivals, we do not limit or charge you for your comps, but we do recommend looking at your budget and making sure you put your comps in the first show to maximise a full house

Current COVID-19 Policy (3 Feb 2022)

We know there's a lot of uncertainty around COVID and vaccinations. Here's where we stand at the moment and we hope this provides certainty for you to make decisions. 

According to the current Queensland Health directives, participants and audience no longer need to provide proof of vaccination.

This is the same for indoor and outdoor events at this point in time, though we expect this to change between now and April - June.

We will keep you updated around any potential changes and build up a list of key resources to make it as easy as possible for you to manage at your event.

Getting set up for show nights

Hi everyone, firstly, we have been continuing with the weekly eNews, mostly on Tuesday but sometimes the day varies. If you haven't been receiving them, email [email protected]

A list of key eNews for participants and audiences can be found here.

KEY TIPS AND ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT SHOW NIGHTS

You can view the attendees and orders and export for communications with audiences at this link

  1. Make it easier to sell tickets at the venue. Instead of setting up Stripe or carrying lots of cash, provide people the link to buy it online and people can buy a ticket UP UNTIL THE OFFICIAL SHOW START TIME.

    This worked extremely well last year when it was brought in for COVID and made it a lot simpler for your front of house.

    Here is the Word poster template and here is the link to all your show QR codes to put in the gap in the poster. Put one outside the venue and one where people might be waiting in line to come into the venue.

  2. How To Check In People at the door. Two approaches depending on what you find easier
    1. Click on "Attendees" in your event and you can tick off each ticket holder. there is a search function to allow you to find
    2. When looking at your attendees in your event list through THIS LINK, click Export. This will save a file with all your bookings. It is saved to wherever downloaded files go (in Mac, this is the Download folder).
  3. Where are my bookings and attendees found? Log into anywhere.is with your participant login and you will be taken direct to your event page. If nothing is listed, contact us at [email protected] immediately so we can fix it.
  4. People are saying their QR codes aren't printing on their tickets. Unfortunately, this approach was not working reliably so we turned off the QR codes on tickets a couple of weeks ago.
  5. What proof do ticket holders have to show? Each ticket purchaser was sent an Order email and a ticket email. Both have the details you would need to check them in.

Looking for a coupon code to provide to customers. This can be created by us for you. Things like a percentage or $ discount per ticket is the kind of thing we can set up for you.

The print programs have been delayed, primarily due to every part of the design and supply chain being hit by floods. We are working to get this ready as soon as possible and will provide updated times to proof these for each region.
