Webtickets Pick n Pay partnership captures digital ticketing space in one year

In only one year, the relatively novel concept of buying a ticket for any event on a digital web-based platform, has made significant inroads in the Namibian market.

Webtickets, the company that functions as an online ticket sale outlet, has won over a large number of clients, including such mega events as the annual Biltongfees and AutoShow.

With a flexible and cost-effective ticketing and event registration solution that includes a bargain of full online distribution, advertising through their marketing partner WhatsOn Namibia, as well as physical outlets, and onsite services, Webtickets Namibia officially set its footprint in September 2016.

Webtickets Namibia manager, Drienie Ellis said that the part clients find most attractive is the live tracking of sales, attendance reports and SMS tickets, because it enables ongoing evaluation of the event sales that indicates improvement areas and solutions prior to the big day.

“Throughout the year there has been many highlights. What pleases us most is to see the consistent drive that Pick n Pay shows in supporting local businesses. This gives us self-belief that with great team work, we can achieve great successes in more years to come. When looking at the entertainment environment within Namibia, there is countless growth potential. Webtickets in partnership with Pick n ay has sold almost 63,000 tickets to date,” Ellis added.

As operational partner, Pick n Pay stated that it greatly benefits from the partnership with Webtickets.

“We are very happy with and excited about this partnership and look forward to many more exciting and growing years together,” Pick n Pay Brand Manager, Dandago Uiras said.

In conclusion, Uiras congratulated Webtickets on its first year of success. She re-affirmed the retailer’s commitment to assist the Webtickets Namibia team on their journey to creating their ideal future.
