UK event technology company Event Genius has announced the launch of a new reserved seating platform.

The new feature integrates into the company’s existing platform of solutions and will be used by Ibiza Rocks Hotel (pictured) to sell a variety of seats inside their VIP areas at the hotel’s events across the summer.

Built into the platform used to manage ticket on-sales for festivals such as Lost & Found, Detonate Festival and El Dorado Festival, the reserved seating solution makes it easy for promoters and venues to add seating plans for events from hundreds to tens of thousands of seats.

“We’ve spent a lot of time making our platform as easy as possible for customers to buy tickets from any device,” says Event Genius’s managing director, Reshad Hossenally. “Whether your customer is on a mobile, tablet or at their computer, they’ll be to view the best seats available, handpick a seat for themselves and inspect seat views  without fuss.

“We’re thrilled to be able to add reserved seating to our suite of services. Adding reserved seating as an option alongside our other award-winning technologies, such as Event Genius Pay, contributes to our aim of becoming the ultimate one-stop shop for event organisers and venues of all sizes.”
