As the country and globe phase into a new normal, venues are struggling to adapt seating to new ticketing and seating scenarios. has been busy sharing information with clients to educate them on the existing capabilities of the ProVenue® system to better prepare them for upcoming events.

“We always want  to provide venues with options,” commented Derek Argobright, Chief Technology Officer at “Venues wishing to adhere to social distancing guidelines can leverage ProVenue’s native support for Social Distance Seating.  Our products are easy-to-configure and able to support both back office and online sales.”

What is Social Distance Seating?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a need for people from different households to maintain a safe and respectful physical distance to reduce any risk of cross-contamination. At events, this means that patrons will have to enter the venue using social distancing guidelines and be seated where no one in any single party is within a pre-determined distance from  another party.

Venue Entry Considerations:

  • Staggered physical entry into the venue and seating area(s) allows patrons to enter in a way that adheres to safe distance practices.
  • Self-service (unattended) entry kiosks provide a means for ticket validation without the need for interaction with a nearby attendant.

Seating Configuration:

  • Within a specific row, considerations may require whether a given party of patrons should have to pass by another party to get to their seats. Depending on the size of parties, that might mean that no more than two parties can be seated in the same row.
  • Within the same row, a specific number of empty seats may need to be maintained between parties.
  • Potentially, a party sitting in a specific row should not have any party sitting in a row directly in front or behind their seating location.

Each organization will need to evaluate their venue configuration to determine adherence to appropriate governmental guidelines. 

With ProVenue and MyProVenue™ venues can manage entry by configuring seats with specific entry and time slot details.  Each ticket can have an assigned group number printed on it, used to stagger entry into the venue.

The dynamic nature of the Social Distance Seating capabilities is unique.  Clients have powerful and flexible options when it comes to re-opening events under social distancing guidelines.

Social Distance Seating employs Hold Codes to determine which seats are available for sale and which remaining seats to block when a set of contiguous seats is locked for sale.  For example, if a party of five purchases seats from a group of six seats, the remaining seat will dynamically be blocked from sale.

Sports and entertainment organizations face new challenges to provide safe and secure venues for live events. Utilizing existing features available today in products from gives venues the needed flexibility and functionality to enable Social Distance Seating.

Indianapolis Indians See New Possibilities with CrowdConnectPlus

Founded in 1902 The Indianapolis Indians are a professional Minor League Baseball team based in the International League and the Triple-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Indians play at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.

Recently, the Indianapolis Indians, upgraded their email marketing services from CrowdConnect™ to CrowdConnectPlus with The decision to upgrade was based on seeking more advanced ways to efficiently market upcoming events to their patrons and increase their engagement. 

In the fast-moving ticketing space, email is a powerful tool. Email is naturally more captive and provides a direct link to patrons. Building that relationship requires the right tools to create, execute, and track email campaigns, according to the Shayla Smith, Digital Marketing Manager at the Indianapolis Indians, commented that,

“CrowdConnect is so easy to use. Building campaigns requires no prior coding experience. The backend of campaign building is user-friendly and has a great creative library with the ability to reuse hex codes.”

From custom fields to segmentation tools, there is so much opportunity with CrowdConnect to engage patrons with a cadence. All of which was not fully realized until the Indianapolis Indians, added CrowdConnectPlus.  According to Matt Guay, Assistant General Manager of Tickets and Operations “our biggest challenge is to integrate with ProVenue®.”

Now the Indianapolis Indians have the ability to tap into ProVenue patron information seamlessly. By directly synchronizing with ProVenue, CrowdConnectPlus removes the need to work in two systems, automates manual processes, and provides the Indianapolis Indians with key patron data points from ProVenue to optimize campaign performance. Since launching on CrowdConnectPlus, Smith state segmentation us improving and,

“Open rates and click rates are higher and people are buying things more readily.”

In the upcoming season, the Indianapolis Indians look forward to increasing use of A/B testing, building more if/when statements, increasing the number of advanced segments, and re-targeting.

Our students and visitors have also been very positive about the move because the platform is so user-friendly, and the entire customer experience is so much better. We are extremely impressed with the technology and everyone at, and we’re really excited for what new features are to come.”

Once a section is selected, MyProVenue displays seat tiles containing pricing details, as well as an icon for displaying a 3D view from the selected seat. The 360° seat view provides venues with increased visibility of the property, the ability to sell premium areas and provide powerful information to share with performers.
