Lord Mayor’s Show renews technology partnership with

An annual event, the Lord Mayor’s Show marks the inauguration of the new Lord Mayor of the City of London. The three-mile long ceremony dates back more than 800 years, when the City was first granted the right to elect its own Mayor. In that time, whilst the route has been adapted and changed through the years, the procession has taken place almost every year, including surviving two bouts of the plague and the Great Fire of London.

Up to 500,000 people line the streets to view the procession completely free of charge.  However, for those who would prefer a little more comfort, the event offers two grandstand seating areas near St Paul’s Cathedral, which regularly sell out.

Show Zones are also set up in nearby Paternoster Square and Bloomberg Arcade.

The procession attracts a diverse, large-scale audience and so to facilitate these unique technology and logistical requirements, The Lord’s Mayor Show works with for management of all ticketing for the grandstands, including the availability to purchase tickets online, by phone or by post.

This entire process – from orders through to fulfilment – is powered by, including staff assistance, and continues to play an important role in the successful delivery of the event.

“We’re very happy with the service that provides; the team is incredibly accommodating and well-trained, well able to support our guests with any queries they may have,” says Helen Field, Head of Business Engagement, who works with the Pageantmaster.

“Over the years the partnership has evolved into one that means is now much more than just a ticketing supplier; we get excellent feedback from our attendees and the support we receive is fantastic.”

The 2019 Lord Mayor’s Show will take place on Saturday 09 November and tickets are now on general sale. Click here to buy tickets online

Membership & Loyalty Launched in ProVenue

We’re excited to announce the introduction of Membership and Loyalty features to our ProVenue® platform, the innovative technology built by that enriches the patron experience while providing venues with new streams of revenue.

The highly anticipated features allow partner venues to reward loyal patrons and cultivate engagement beyond the live event experience.

By incentivising purchases, the Membership and Loyalty features create the foundation for repeat business, and provide venues with the ability to track and build on relationships over time. For example, a multi-level Membership programme encourages members to advance levels for acquiring additional venue-customised benefits.

To enrol members, partner venues can sell membership individually or grant it freely, either by itself or as a side-benefit for a package sale.

Using the ProVenue® Loyalty feature or a third-party solution, venues can also encourage members to earn higher levels of membership by acquiring ‘loyalty points’.

A Loyalty programme assigns point values for purchases and other activities, such as the use of a digital ticket instead of a paper ticket to enter the venue.

To motivate point accrual, venues offer rewards, such as exchanging points for a unique fan experience or merchandise, requiring a certain number of points for the opportunity to buy high-demand tickets, or requiring a certain number of points to advance to the next level of membership (from a “Silver” level to “Gold,” for example).

The power to manage Membership and Loyalty programmes directly through ProVenue® is a substantial contribution to the platform – and to the ongoing commitment to help venues create captivating patron experiences and lifelong memories.

If you would like to enable this feature, please contact the UK sales team on 01908 232 404 or at
