Gateway Ticketing gears up for 2019 WWA Annual Symposium
Gateway Ticketing Systems, a world leader in ticketing software, admission control and revenue-generating solutions for attractions for over 30 years, is exhibiting at this year’s World Waterpark Association Annual Symposium from October 7-10 at Walt Disney World Resort. Gateway will be at Booth #413.
“Gateway Ticketing Systems has a vibrant user community within the waterpark space,” says Chad Wallace, business solutions architect with Gateway. “We always look forward to reconnecting with those customers. But we also love meeting with new waterparks, listening to their challenges, discovering their needs, and discussing how we can help increase their attendance and revenue.”
The company is excited to discuss new features in Galaxy, its flagship ticketing and admission control software. Gateway is currently developing integrations with Microsoft Active Directory, Apple Wallet and GBG Loqate, which will help customers maintain the utmost of guest data integrity. The company is also continuing its focus on its highly flexible next-generation custom Ticketing and F&B kiosks, improving accessibility functionality, and maintaining domestic & international data security compliance.
Gateway’s Galaxy Ticketing and Admission Control software offers a highly-configurable suite of solutions tailored to the needs of attractions, including the ability to sell tickets on-site, through kiosks, online with a responsive design web store, through group sales, and via resellers and third-party distributors.
Through over 30 years of operation, Gateway has developed robust functionality around annual passholder, membership and donor management, as well as targeted upsell opportunities and the efficient scheduling of groups, private tours, advanced bookings and timed events. Galaxy will also unify your ticketing, food & beverage and retail sales.
In recent years, the ticketing provider has developed their Reporting Plus and CRM Plus modules which capture all the transactional data from Galaxy and aggregate it into easily accessible and actionable reports used to make smarter business and marketing decisions.
They’ll be available to discuss Galaxy Connect, the award-winning cloud-based platform that connects their attractions with any number of third-party distributors with a single integration to enable selling of live tickets anywhere in the world.
“To date in 2019, Connect customers have sold over $130 million in tickets and over 1.3 million customers have skipped the redemption line and gotten into their attractions sooner,” says Chad Wallace. “Connect currently works with 44 online travel agencies, with additional OTAs being added each week.”
To encourage booth visits and engaging conversations, Gateway is offering their current customers a special gift if they come to the booth with a friend and potential new customer of Galaxy [and their friend gets the gift too!].
