skip to Main Content partners with Caymax Sports to deliver inaugural Cayman Islands Classic is proud to announce a new partnership with Caymax Sports Ltd., which will see all ticketing for the inaugural Cayman Islands Classic managed via the ProVenue® platform.

Taking place in November 2017 and founded in conjunction with Global Sports Management, the Cayman Islands Classic is a new preseason basketball tournament which will welcome eight top-flight teams from across the US as part of the NCAA Division I preseason tournament schedule.

The three-day competition will be held at the John Gray Gymnasium, a new multi-sport 2,000-seat facility, and will aim to mirror the success of similar tournaments including Hawaii’s Maui Invitational and the Bahamas’ Battle 4 Atlantis. 

The event is also backed by the Cayman Islands government as part of its strategy to attract more visitors to the island, and forms part of its longer-term plans to host a growing number of multi-sport international events throughout the year.

Using ProVenue®, spectators will be able to purchase tickets online and use the MyTickets™ account management platform to manage all aspects of their bookings. 

This will include ticket forwarding and exchange, online voucher redemption and access to targeted promotions and offers.

Through MyTickets™, patrons will also have access to Consign-Back™, the resale platform which allows patrons to re-sell unused tickets through primary sales channels.

Designed to help combat the challenges surrounding the secondary ticketing market, Consign-Back™manages all sales through ProVenue® and offers a secure and trustworthy platform for both sellers and buyers. 

The advanced functionality and patron-centric design of ProVenue® – with reference to its mobile-first approach – were also cited as primary reasons for Caymax Sports’ decision to partner with and ProVenue®.

The Naples Players extends partnership with ProVenue® migration

Nationally recognised US community theatre The Naples Players (TNP) has extended its partnership with technology solutions provider

The new agreement sees the popular Florida venue migrate from its existing system, ProVenueMax, to ProVenue® –’s most advanced platform that provides clients with a 360˚ view of their patrons’ buying habits and preferences.

Founded in 1953, The Naples Players has become one of Southwest Florida’s most popular theatres and hosts more than 220 performances every year. The venue comprises two theatres: the main stage Blackburn Hall and Tobye Studio, a more flexible space that has supported the growth of a wider breadth of show content over recent years.

Alongside its busy performance schedule, The Naples Players also runs a youth theatre education programme, ‘KidzAct’. What started as a summer program, KidzAct now runs all year round, providing local children and young adults with the opportunity to develop their skills in acting, theatre production and leadership. 

Part of the decision to move to ProVenue® was to support the theatre’s fundraising initiatives. With ticket sales covering just over half of TNP’s annual expenses, donations remain a vital source of revenue for the theatre and allow TNP to continue to deliver professional-standard productions at competitive prices for visitors. 

ProVenue® permits donations to be made online via the organisation’s website, where visitors can also purchase tickets and merchandise. 

The flexible nature of ProVenue® will also allow The Naples Players to engage better with visitors via mobile devices – another reason cited for the system migration and an ever-increasing trend in ticketing. 

Patrons of the theatre will also benefit from the introduction of MyTickets™, an account management platform that allows ticket forwarding and exchange, ticket resale via Consign-Back™, online voucher redemption and targeted promotions. MyTickets is supported by the extensive data capture and analysis features of ProVenue®.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer our patrons world-class ticketing solutions”, said TNP’s Artistic Director Byce Alexander, “enabling our box office to be more efficient, but also allowing our audiences to engage in the theatre in easier and more customisable ways.”

Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre moves onto ProVenue®

The award-winning Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre has become one of the latest UK venues to migrate across to’s ProVenue® platform.

Located in the village of Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, where Roald Dahl lived and wrote for 36 years, the museum has been a customer since 2005 and welcomes approximately 70,000 visitors every year.

Popular with school groups, the museum houses original manuscripts, documents and ‘ideas books’ that detail characters and storylines from some of the author’s most popular stories. It also hosts children’s workshops and events, designed to enhance creativity and writing skills.

It was the growing popularity of the workshops that supported the museum’s decision to move from ProVenueDatabox to ProVenue®. The new system will support the venue’s aim of increasing the number of bookings made online; the museum is also preparing to introduce paperless ticketing, a feature which is also facilitated by ProVenue®.

The impending UK roll-out of MyProVenue®, the platform’s next-generation web application designed to optimise the user’s desktop, tablet and mobile experience, was also cited as a reason for the migration across to the new system.

In addition to online bookings, the museum welcomes a significant number of walk-ups and anonymous sales, where the level of information required from those visitors differs from advanced bookings – the flexibility of the ProVenue® platform has made this process more efficient for both visitors and the museum’s staff.

Since going live with ProVenue®, the museum has already experienced a change in purchasing behaviours, as Anita Richardson, Retail and Visitor Experience Manager, explains: “Our ticketing processes differ to that of a sports venue or theatre, but the flexibility and functionality of ProVenue® meant that the system could easily be adapted to deliver to our requirements.

“In the few months since ProVenue® went live, we have already seen an increase in online bookings which is a very promising sign. Our staff are also finding the system easy to use and the transition from ProVenueDatabox to ProVenue® has been seamless, with the team providing fantastic support throughout.”

The Harlequin Theatre welcomes ProVenue® migration to boost online sales

Longstanding UK client, the Harlequin Theatre, has recently introduced ProVenue® to manage all ticketing requirements at the Surrey venue.

Previously on ProVenueMax™, the Harlequin Theatre will use the new platform to support its digital strategy as Ian Orrick, Front of House Manager, explains: “One of our aims at the Harlequin is to drive more sales through our website and the move across to ProVenue® is central to this.

“Its responsive design makes it easy to view and use on tablet and mobile, and the extended interactive seat selection options will give patrons more choice and flexibility when booking online. As a web-based system, ProVenue® will also permit access for all our staff – something that has previously been limited to certain computers – which will be of huge benefit to the box office team.”

As’s most advanced platform, ProVenue® has been developed with both venues and patrons in mind. The system’s extensive data capture and reporting tools enable venues to design and implement targeted marketing campaigns – another reason why the Harlequin Theatre made the switch to the new system.

In addition, ProVenue® will also enable the theatre to implement patron-centric offers, upsells and retail packages online, as well as support the venue’s longer term aim of moving across to paperless ticketing.

As one of’s longest-serving customers, the relationship with the Harlequin Theatre dates back more than 20 years and remains one of the reasons why the venue continues to work with “The team are fantastic – extremely helpful, supportive and nothing is ever too much trouble,” adds Ian.

“The sales team understand our requirements and challenges and they’re great in advising solutions that really deliver what we need. The support team too are always on-hand to assist and have been excellent throughout the system migration.”
