Reserved Seating FAQs

Can customers select their own seats with reserved seating?

Yes! When attendees go to the web page to purchase their ticket, the event organizer can offer attendees the option to select their own seats based on how the venue is arranged. During checkout, attendees can see which seats are available for purchase and which seats are already reserved.

How do I set up the seating chart for my event?

Easily! For your first event, you’ll be prompted to list how many rows or tables will be in your venue, then how many seats will be in each row or table. (Pro Tip: Once you complete this step, save it as a template, and you won’t have to count seats again moving forward.) Most event organizers can complete this step in just a few minutes. Then you’re ready to start selling tickets for your event. You can also include reserved seating ticket printing, so attendees who print their tickets know exactly where their seats are. If you would like to have help building the venue, Vanco’s team can do it for you on your paid events. All you would need to provide is a seating map.

Can I assign different prices to different seats?

Yes! Event organizers can assign different prices for different seats. This is common in large theaters where pricing may differ based on seat location relative to the event stage, but this feature can be used in variety of other situations as well, including VIP seating.

How do I handle group ticket purchases with reserved seating?

Event organizers can offer a group ticket purchase ticketing option, and attendees can select all the seats they want in one purchase session.

Can I reserve seats for VIPs or other special guests?

Yes! Event organizers can reserve or block off seats for VIPs and other special guests. These seats will be marked on the seating chart as the event organizer indicates.

How do I handle refunds or exchanges for reserved seating tickets?

You can easily refund tickets in case of event cancellations or if an attendee can no longer attend. In the event of a rainout or if an event must be canceled entirely, bulk refunds are also an available option. 

Is the reserved seating feature secure?

Yes, the Vanco Events payment processing feature is fully encrypted and PCI-compliant, the highest standard for credit card processing. This ensures all transactions are safe and secure, meaning event organizers can be confident that their customers' payment information is protected.

Can I use reserved seating for multiple events?

Yes! We have several clients who set up all their events for the year in one session and then take tickets at the events as they come up. Vanco Events can even manage multiple events occurring on the same day. 

Can I customize the seating chart for each event?

You can do so if needed. Most clients only need a few venues that match their event setups. With our template feature, event organizers can create their theater venue and then use that same venue setup moving forward. Event organizers also have the flexibility to create multiple customized seating charts for different venues or update the seating chart for a specific event as needed.

How do I communicate seating information to my customers?

That part’s easy! When attendees check out, they will be prompted to select their seats and their tickets and seats are reserved.

Can customers change their seats after purchasing a ticket?

Yes, Vanco Events offers this capability, but allowing changes is up to the discretion of the event organizer.
