After writing my article regarding the considerably huge failure of Eden’s approach of releasing tickets for their Jimmy Carr event through their cinema website (granted, the original plan was to actually host the event in cinema 16), it seems like their new plan was given to a fairly new company in Malta.
To recap, there was no date and time announced of when the tickets will be available; it would have been easier to go back in time to see a live dinosaur than to log into the website, reset your password or create a new account…. let alone managing to buy a ticket or two!
Although ShowsHappening have been operating for the last 3 years, it is recently that they have started offering seating tickets.
I must admit, that this is the first time I heard of this organisation, which means that I had to create an account and thoroughly go through the features of the website.
Upon doing so, I can understand why Eden has chosen to make things right and opt for this option to sell their Jimmy Carr tickets.
ShowsHappening runs smoothly and flawlessly. The design of the website is modern and works well from a laptop as well as from smartphones. Clicking on ‘View Event’ takes you to the event information page in a split of a second; in one single page you can read about the event itself, know the ticket price bands, location of the event as well as have the option to go on and purchase your ticket(s). If the show is seated, you are able to see the seating plan and have the ability to choose your desired seating spot. The organiser can even send photos to ShowsHappening with the view from each seat, to help their future client select the best seat one can afford! Of course, this must sound mundane, but it something that in my opinion would boost up sales in the long run.
