For performing arts, theatre, and sports teams, the Brovoice (a brochure and invoice combined) is designed for season subscriptions and renewals.  It contains personalized information for the patron’s selection of shows, dates, and seats.  The Brovoice also presents marketing information for the upcoming season and about the event sponsors.  Worldwide Ticketcraft offers fulfillment services to handle the packaging and mailing.

Worldwide Ticketcraft also demonstrated the features and benefits of hard cover books for season ticket packages.  The hard cover books are personalized for the season patron on the outside cover and throughout the interior pages.  These special books can contain much more than the season tickets.  Other items can be bound in the books for the patron, including standard items like parking passes, drink coupons, patron ID cards, and sponsor advertisements.  Other unique items can be added such as VIP credentials, wristbands, scratch-off tickets, stickers, souvenir autograph pages, and more.

Worldwide Ticketcraft exhibits at the INTIX trade show each year and this was a successful opportunity to greet current customers and meet new sales prospects.  The Company looks forward to participating in future INTIX conferences.
