Ticketing is an important part of event planning. An effective ticketing plan can assist with crowd management, safety & security, and provide great data to your leadership and marketing teams. Issuing tickets electronically is a great way to collect attendee data, allowing you to communicate with your attendees to notify them of any updates, as well as gather data prior to and/or following your event. Depending on the nature and/or size of your activity, the University Events Team (UET) may require your organization or department to distribute tickets for your event.
Cornell offers a number of options when it comes to ticketing. If you're planning on selling tickets for your event, consider utilizing our on-line platform, CornellTickets.com. This site utilizes a third-party ticketing company, and provides many great benefits for the event planner. CornellTickets allows for both Cornell specific sales (tickets available to only Cornell faculty, staff and/or students), as well as general public. Tickets can be customized by price, section, and/or availability based on user type. For example, student tickets may be set at a specific price and made available before others, while general public tickets can be set at a different price with different availability options. CornellTickets is available to registered student organizations, fraternities and sororities, and university departments for a small fee (which can be passed on to the buyer). Revenue from sales can only be transferred to on-campus departments or student organization accounts. For more information, along with fee structure, visit the CornellTickets Ticket Request Form.Campus Groups is another option for ticket sales, and is available to organizations and/or departments with a CampusGroups account. CampusGroups is currently set up to distribute free tickets only.
Both CornellTickets and CampusGroups offers great reporting, and allows the event planner to communicate and send updates to ticket holders. Electronic tickets from both platforms may be scanned using personal devices (setup and prior training may be required).
