Vendini Announces Solution for Festival Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) - Vendini, a leader in ticketing solutions for live events, today announced the festival industry's first complete solution to simplify front and back office operations. For years, festivals have struggled with communicating among multiple software systems and semi-manual processes in an attempt to simplify everything from credentialing and catering to ticket sales and the gate-entry process.

"With Vendini's Festival Solution, we will be the first to provide festivals with a 360 degree view of their business in one solution," said Mark Tacchi, President and CEO of Vendini.

Vendini's Festival Solution is a set of five industry leading solutions wrapped into one:

  • Vendini SiteOps - the leading solution in back office logistics management for events. Vendini SiteOps allows festival managers to handle credentialing, catering, volunteer management, and artist contracts. Vendini SiteOps is used by over 75% of today's major music festivals including Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Riverbend Festival, and Michigan's electronic dance music (EDM) festival Electric Forest. 

  • Vendini Ticketing - the leading cloud based ticketing solution used by thousands of organizations every day. With this solution, ticket sales are streamlined through all sales channels including social, mobile, web, phone, or in person. Complex event listings are easily handled, whether single day, multi-day, or require monthly payment plans for fans.

  • Vendini Marketing - a set of promotional tools to give festival managers an advantage in promotion and selling more tickets. Festival managers can blast thousands of emails, auto publish sales to Facebook and Twitter, and even assist in direct mailings. Integrated into Vendini Ticketing, closed loop reporting shows which campaigns are effective. 

  • Vendini SiteLine - a complete modern website content management system built specifically for the festival, keeping the festival's brand and messaging out front. Simple for the festival to update, Vendini SiteLine is directly integrated into the Vendini Ticketing platform, making the ticket buying process seamless and enjoyable for fans.

  • Walletini - A friend to friend mobile ticketing application, Walletini allows easy transfer of tickets, uncovering more fans for the festival. 

  • Vendini Services - highly trained and experienced festival professionals. Vendini Services personnel handle festival on-site and off-site needs, supporting event organizers from pre-planning activities through the event itself.

"Vendini's Festival Solution improves our ability to execute on critical tasks for the Riverbend Music Festival", said Chip Baker, Executive Director. "Their combination of people and festival solutions allows us to focus on creating the best festival experience for our fans."

Exploring new avenues of festival technology, Vendini will be hosting a webinar, "Implementing RFID and the Road to Cashless", September 17 at 2:00 EDT. Registration is available at http://9nl.me/7xv6.
