Event Innovation Inc, a Washington, D.C. based enterprise software company for sports arenas, concerts, and performing arts theaters, has developed new technologies for collegiate sports and campus based activities. The company says its Campus Card System manager can manage student ticket requests, automate ticket lottery capabilities and assign tickets to students to eliminate paper tickets.
Through what the company calls “social ticketing,” students, faculty and staff can also request a ticket for an upcoming game or event, transfer tickets to each other, transfer or donate tickets back to the ticketing system for reissuing to others and purchase concessions and merchandise at the event.
Event Innovation was founded by several executives from campus card provider Blackboard, including Stephen Gilfus, Event’s CEO and a Blackboard founder, and Ron Dinwiddie COO, former product developer of the Blackboard Commerce Suite.
Event Innovation does not sell or transact tickets. The company partners with ticketing software companies to provide an extension to their current capabilities.
