Are you meeting customer expectations?

Did you know that most Australians prefer to  purchase tickets online?

Now every dance studio can afford to sell tickets and accept registrations online
…and it takes just minutes.

Created for community organisations like dance studios, schools and theatres, TryBooking is Australia’s easiest, most affordable and accessible online ticketing system. 

“My goal was to develop a program that would make it easier for community groups to sell tickets and manage RSVP’s for any type of event or registration. I knew it had to be accessible and affordable to work within the limited resources of charities, schools and community organisations.”  Grant Dunoon, founder and CEO TryBooking

Not an IT whizz? Doesn’t matter! Anyone can set up ticketing for any event in just minutes. 
Simple wizards will guide you through the entire process so you don’t need any training or special IT skills. Everything you need is at
www.trybooking.com. You can work from any computer that’s connected to the internet and people can access your tickets from any web browser, anywhere.

You can even accept online registrations for workshops, auditions and classes. Use TryBooking to gather RSVP’s or create guest lists for award nights, certificates and dinners. The entire service is free for free events!  

Parents and guests love the convenience of buying tickets when it’s convenient for them! Many schools find that they sell out of seats faster when ticket purchasing is online because it’s so much easier for patrons. Upon payment, people simply print their tickets from home. Now you’ve eliminated ticket printing and handling!

For registrations, using TryBooking eliminates writing out forms, managing paperwork and double handling data. You become immediately more efficient because all your information is instantly available and ready to download into your own spreadsheet. Too easy!

With the lowest fees in the industry, there really are no excuses for manual ticketing.

  • 30¢ per ticket is all that purchasers pay
  • You are only charged 2.1% + 50¢ per transaction to cover banking costs.

That’s it. No more fees or charges and there are no contracts. Use TryBooking once or all the time. It’s always the same cost.

Customer service is paramount when switching to a new ticketing system and that’s why TryBooking has dedicated Dance Consultants that will ensure your transition is smooth and easy. Your consultant will even set up your first event for you (no charge of course) to get you started quickly and to help build your confidence. In no time you will be enjoying the many benefits of online ticketing. Most users report that it’s actually fun to see what they can do:

  • Design tickets with your colours, graphics, logos and images
  • Create interactive seating plans for any venue (better than many major theatre companies)
  • Easy to integrate into your existing system (you can still take manual payments)

“Once the tickets went online, all we had to do was sit back and watch all 4 shows sell out in record time! Our patrons loved the accessibility of the website, especially the opportunity to select their own seats and print their own tickets. We will continue to use TryBooking for all future events; they come with my strongest recommendation!”
Steve Marshall, Theatre Manager, Prendiville Performing Arts Centre

“We have sold more tickets than any other concert. Due to the ease of the system and that it is accessible all the time, people are sharing the how to book and just going to the website to book more seats. All the feedback has been positive and it’s taken a lot of workload off us.” Kylie Drew, Dance Connection Studio 

“Managing the ticketing for our showcase and showtime performances was always a very time consuming and political process when we ticketed the performances by hand.  Last year we used TryBooking, which was such a positive experience.  It was easy to use and very convenient for families.  Parents no longer had to queue for hours and our administration was significantly reduced.   But most importantly, online ticketing gave me total control to monitor sales at any time.  I could see which students had booked in, how many tickets had sold and had instant access to all financial information. TryBooking is a very professional and affordable system I can recommend to dance studios/ the performing arts”.
Kevin Coyne, Choreographer, Director, Michelle Slater Performing Arts.
