We are happy to announce that we have teamed up with Fatsoma to be able to help our existing members and future members be able to promote events, sell tickets and reach more people through our new ticketing platform.
By partnering with Fatsoma we are now able to promote events that are listed on our website, Co promote events and also enable members that need or would benefit from the ability to sell tickets direct through our new ticketing platform powered by Fatsoma (Flat rate 10% fee charged per ticket sale). We have already got the New EventsnWales Event & Ticketing platform set up and can be used straight away. So if you would like the ability to sell tickets even if they are Free (no fee charged either) then you can and all under the EventsnWales brand. Any events that are set up through the platform we will add to the events listed so they will still have a page listed on the main website as well as being able to be searched through the fatsoma website and app. All tickets sold through our platform will help to keep our website sustainable with EventsnWales receiving a % of the fee for all those that sign up with us.
That’s not all, for those events that are happy for us to Co-Promote your event then an amount of commission can be agreed for us to help promote your event further. With designated shout outs and marketing campaigns to help. We will always send a Co Promotion request to events listed but it is entirely up to the individual event/organisation if they would like to take this up. The event will still be listed on the main website even if we are not Co-Promoting it. Any events that are listed through the new platform that we are co promoting you will be able to locate under a new menu section Co Promoted Events.
Its an exciting time for EventsnWales as we are looking to the long term for the brand and to enable us to continue to help promote all events that are listed on both platforms and this will hopefully generate the income to enable us to keep the general membership free and also provide you will a larger spread of people visiting your own event listings. Please make sure that you sign up to receive updates of our newsletters and events to keep up to date with the latest in Wales. Make sure you pop over to the new platform and follow us so you get the regular updates and others to do so too.
We look forwarded to both existing and new members and organisations being able to use the ticketing platform and have a way of selling and monitoring ticket sales without the hassle of taking payments themselves and issuing tickets or email confirmations this is hopefully your all in one solution.
We have been asked by some of our old friends that we have helped out over time and that are carrying on the great fundraising started by their Late Father Les Lavender, to help them with a signed Joe Calzaghe Boxing Gloves Charity Auction. Of course we were happy to be able to help in anyway, especially as they have had the Charity Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long event listed on our website. The gloves have been kindly donated by Ron Davies a friend of Wendy Mitchell who continues the great fundraising spirit that Les had. Ron also ran the Manchester marathon earlier this year in aid of Cancer Research Wales.
