Get Fancy with Reserved Seating

Reserved seating has been around since the Roman Colosseum, when spectators received tickets in the form of numbered pottery shards that directed them to their section and row. Though humankind has come a long way (sorta) from watching lions eat men for sport, reserved seating has remained surprisingly complex and difficult for DIY organizers to execute. Until now with Eventbrite’s reserved seating solution, Eventbrite’s Seat Designer.

This intuitive DIY tool helps you design a custom seat map that reflects the setup of your venue, charge more for better seats, and provide a premium experience for your audience.

After you design your map to mirror your space, you can set your selling order in a single click. Eventbrite will automatically sell the best seats first for you, but you can customize your layout any way you like and charge more for different seating areas to make sure you’re making the bank you deserve.

Reserved Seating also gives your fans a legit reason to buy tickets early and score the best seats possible. In two clicks, your audience can buy tickets via both mobile and web and secure their reserved seats. The more tickets you sell early on, the less stressful the lead-up to show-time.
