SMACC Ticket Release Begins Monday, 20 August 2018
The opening of ticket sales is always one of the most exciting days on the SMACC calendar! This year we have developed a new process for the sales (in response to all your feedback), which we believe will be fairer, simpler and hopefully much less frustrating. This is how it will work:
- Sales will occur via a ballot which opens on Monday, 20 August 2018
- The ballot registration will only require some simple demographic data (name/age range/gender/country), work name, and your email so that you can generate a unique identifier.
Note: There’s no advantage to entering more than once by using a different email as your unique identifier is based on your demographic data and work institution name! Duplicates will not be entered in the ballot. Offers of registration are not transferable to different names!!
- You can register a friend in the ballot using the same simple process above but you will need to enter their demographics and email, so they too will be identifiable. (This prevents people accidentally double purchasing for each other)
- The Ballot will be open for 7 days from Monday, 20 August 2018
- Tickets will be allocated to geographical locations around the globe to ensure that each region is represented
- Most of the registrations available will go into this first ticket release although as with prior years we will hold a smaller portion of tickets back for a 2nd release in mid-November 2018 and then a small 3rd release in late January 2019. This still means the best chance of securing tickets will be in the first release
- Once the ballot closes tickets will be allocated in each region and delegates will be then notified a week later confirming ticket availability and purchasing details.
- Notified delegates will then have 7 days to purchase a ticket. If they fail to do this then the tickets will revert back into the ballot. Delegates who enter the ballot and receive an allocation but fail to take up the allocation will lose their chance in the ballot and will need to re-register for future ballots later in the year
- Delegates who register for the ballot but miss out on a ticket allocation will automatically be placed into a wait list for allocations that have been offered but not taken up after the first week. Once all balloted registrations have been taken up any delegates remaining on the waitlist will then be automatically entered into subsequent ballots later in the year
- Equally any un-allocated tickets will be redistributed to later ballots.
