A quick round-up of ticketing & event marketing tips from our founder, Jonny

We recently ran a Q&A webinar with our founder, Jonny, giving Ticket Tailor users the chance to ask the guy behind the platform anything they fancied.

Although Jonny might blush at the compliment, he’s a pretty knowledgeable guy when it comes to all things events and ticketing, having over a decade’s worth of experience! So we thought it would be useful to create a quick-fire round-up of key Q&A takeaways for those who don’t have time to watch the full webinar.

Event industry trends 2024: Predictions, insights & data from Ticket Tailor

The events industry doesn’t sit still for long. As the facilitator of togetherness – in entertainment, in work, in learning, in everything, really – it is in a constant state of flux.

Having said that, when you work as closely with the industry as we do, keeping a finger on the pulse is possible – for the 12 months ahead, at least.

As 2023 draws to a close, we cast our view forwards to the upcoming year, using data from our platform to hone in on the trends we can expect to dominate 2024. Things like the fact we’ve seen a huge surge in event creators offering greater purchase-flexibility to ticket buyers. And that there's a growing theme of ‘giving back’ across events in general – indicated by an almost 20 percent jump in money raised for charity through our Donations feature.

8 event planning trends that are set to characterise 2021

8 event planning trends that are set to characterise 2021

With the Covid-19 vaccine being rolled out as we speak, and with this year of unprecedented challenges drawing to a close, 2021 sits on the horizon like an official beacon of hope. But among the celebration and tentative spirit-raising, is the awareness that things are by no means about to revert to the ‘normality' we once knew overnight.

With all this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the event planning trends we can expect to see over the course of 2021 (and, in some cases, beyond).
