For over 15 years we had a system of selling tickets to participants' families prior to selling these to the general public. The system we had in place was very stressful. We had to produce ticket vouchers to ensure that all parents got their tickets; create databases to ensure tickets would not be purchased for performance days, where a dancer was not involved; then reserve all international performers prior to selling them to the general public; amongst many other issues.
Partnering with Buytickets.gi has created an easier and more efficient way in which to sell our tickets, both to family members and international dance schools. It is a very easy process and after the Festival has finished, with one exchange the charity is reimbursed with the ticket sale funds accordingly. These funds are then distributed by the Charities Trustees, to various groups and individuals, so they can undertake educational projects which are of value to our community.
Having our tickets available for sale online will allow us to continue to grow our events, especially the Gibraltar International Dance Festival, where we can reach and sell tickets all over the world to these dance academies and their families. Partnering with Buytickets will open doors we never thought were possible.
