The New TicketCity Website – What To Do This Weekend?

This is a first in a series of posts that will show off some of the new features of the TicketCity website. Our main goal with the redesign was to make it easier for customers to find the tickets they wanted. Sometimes that’s as easy as plugging your team or performer into the search box and seeing what comes up.

Sometimes you may not know what you’re looking for, or you’re just looking for something to do this weekend. The Calendar View on our City Information pages is designed to make it easy to take in a week’s worth of events in a particular town at a glance.

Here is the basic calendar view for the rest of the week in Austin, TX, showing me what options I have to catch a show this weekend. Friday I could check out the Coz or Eddie Izzard, for instance. If nothing else, I know I have some extremely varied choices in stand-up.

I can choose to sort the view by type of events, if I’m looking only for theatre, comedy, or shows.

If I rollover one of the entries, I get more information on that particular show. It displays the venue information and gives me the option to view the available tickets. Rolling the mouse outside the pop-up window will remove it.

Finally, if I need to plan ahead, I can use the date selector to choose a different week of events to display in the Austin area.

This is just one taste of our new features. I’ll be bringing you more as the weeks go on.
