BHS partners with Eventbrite; secures reduced rate for chapter and district usePosted on
This summer, BHS entered into an exciting partnership with Eventbrite, a ticketing platform used to host, promote, and manage events. During July’s Nashville International Convention, we began selling 2017 Midwinter (San Antonio) and International (Las Vegas) tickets using Eventbrite. The most exciting part about this partnership is that we were able to negotiate a significantly REDUCED RATE* to use Eventbrite AND this rate is available to ALL districts and chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society!
*Standard rate at Eventbrite is $0.99 + 2.5% of ticket price, with a max fee of $19.95 per ticket. BHS’ negotiated fee is $0.99 +1.5% of ticket price, with a max fee of $5.95 per ticket.
Eventbrite created video tutorials specifically for BHS, so you can decide if using Eventbrite for your events is the right decision for your chapter or district. You can access those video tutorials here!
We have created some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for your reference.
Once you review the materials and decide Eventbrite is right for you, here are the steps to signing up:
1)Go to www.eventbrite.com , sign up for an account, and create one paid ticketed event- keep in mind that you should avoid personal email addresses when signing up. Choose an email address that will remain the same regardless of your current officers. Do not start selling tickets for the event until AFTER the discount has been applied to your account.
2)Once you sign up for an Eventbrite account, click here to fill out an interest form (https://docs.google.com/a/
barbershop.org/forms/d/ 1P1olAqoRKDOq- 39tMWxaCBj0dO35KTfbHekUot0eWn8 /edit). Eventbrite will be notified and then apply the price break to your account. Please allow up to 3 days to apply the discount. Again, do not start selling tickets for an event until AFTER the discount has been applied to your account.
3)A representative from Eventbrite will then email you notification that the discount has been applied to your event and you’re ready to go live with selling tickets!
