Ticketeazy wants to boost mobile ticketing

There’ve been talk about mobile ticketing for a long time already, but still we don’t see much appearing on the market.

One of the latest initiatives is Ticketeazy, a project developed by Nick Van de Velde and Thomas Verhaeghe during their final year in college. They want to ease waiting lines at events through mobile ticketing, using twodimensional barcodes (QR codes) on the mobile phone.

When buying a ticket online, the user receives the bar code on his phone.  He simply has to scan that code at the entrance of the event to get access.  A copy of the bar code is sent to the mailbox, so it can be printed and scanned on paper as well, for those who are less confident the mobile technology will work properly.

At the moment, Ticketeazy targets small to medium large events.  They don’t have any test cases yet, but they are in talks with parties such as Tele Ticket Service, who has shown an intrest in the mobile service.

See you there! at Customer First and joined several other exhibitors at the second edition of Customer First, last week at Tour&Taxis.
In 2006, the first edition drew more than 1600 professionals. This year the organiser Best of Publishing chose to spread the event over two days. And while officially there were about 2300 visitors, the hall looked disappointingly empty most of the time. Many students though, who -as one pointed out to me- are “the future of the business”… Oh well.

We organised a game to promote our MMS application; the mobile pictures were taken all over Customer First and then displayed on our flat screen. Participants could send in the code that matched their picture. From all those participants we picked a winner: Nicolas P. will receive a nice Nokia mobile phone – congratulations!

Check the MMS picture gallery here.

MobileWebbers Sven Bally & Danny Lein also held a workshop, presenting several interesting Mobile Marketing and Mobile Internet case studies.
