The industry is in desperate need of a way to provide paperless tickets with capabilities that meet real world scenarios. Creating a social ticketing network that truly meets the needs of concert goers that purchase multiple tickets for their friends, sports fans that manage season tickets, or theater patrons that have tickets across a multitude of events was key to our design.

OvationTM takes the best of paperless ticketing technologies and provides capabilities beyond those currently available in the sports and entertainment industry. By combining social networking technologies, a robust ticket management solution, and "requests for attendance", with a free membership card, event attendees can enjoy all the benefits of paperless ticketing without any of its challenges.

Ovation registration is Free to individuals, their friends and families. During sign up, an individual only need present a valid credit card and address to validate their membership and receive a membership card. Members who purchase event tickets from several major ticket providers will be able to have them electronically deposited into their Ovation.com account. Within Ovation, a member can manage several event tickets and their associated events using an easy to use drag and drop interface. Personal or business contacts can be easily imported from Outlook, Yahoo, Hotmail, Windows Live, Google, Linkedin and other social networks. By using Request for Attendance technology, Ovation members can invite friends, family and co-workers easily to the event and determine who can attend. With a simple click of a button, members can manage and transfer event tickets to people they would like to attend. When a member attends an event, he/she simply presents event gate staff with an Ovation membership card, validates that the electronic ticket is in the member account and upon validation is given immediate access. Attendees will no longer have to stand in line to pick up tickets at will call, deal with the challenges of managing paper tickets, or making phone calls to find out who can attend with them. The entire process is quick, secure and user-friendly and done within a closed network.

"Today's paperless ticketing solutions lack the capabilities necessary for event attendees to manage several tickets for friends, groups, families and co-workers," said Stephen Gilfus CEO and Chairman of Event Innovation Inc. "The industry is in desperate need of a way to provide paperless tickets with capabilities that meet real world scenarios. Creating a social ticketing network that truly meets the needs of concert goers that purchase multiple tickets for their friends, sports fans that manage season tickets, or theater patrons that have tickets across a multitude of events was key to our design."

Venues and event promoters can now provide enhanced benefits without any of the challenges of traditional paperless ticketing:

Mitigate scalping by leveraging a closed ticket management network Allow ticket holders to maximize their ticket investment Create more buts in seats, less unused tickets Reduce the time it takes for ticket holders to manage tickets Generate increased revenue Obtain greater attendance Event Innovation does not sell or transact tickets. The company partners with ticketing software companies to provide an extension to their current capabilities. Potential ticketing software partners should contact our corporate headquarters for more information.
