Express Ingress: Security & Ticketing

First Impressions Matter

Faster Ingress = Better Experience

The visitor entrance is the first impression that guests have of your venue, and their experience here sets the tone for the event.

The goal of any stadium is to get fans through entry as quickly and safely as possible. This provides a better fan experience, but is also tied to increased revenue via concessions and merchandise purchases.

Using Wicket with Evolv allows customers to bring their venue to the forefront of the modern visitor experience. Through the use of cutting edge technology, the most common pain points become things of the past.

Best Practices

Process & Layout

A process integration that’s flexible enough for any venue or use case.

Wicket and Evolv share many customers who all have unique physical environments and logistical considerations that factor into how solutions are deployed.

1. Identify your bottleneck areas

Physical limitations such as gates or roads may affect ingress. Bringing express lanes to these areas will help reduce overflow of people.

2. Determine the right entry workflow

Depending on entrance design, it may make sense to have security then ticketing, or vice versa. Our solution is portable for any layout.

3. Create dedicated “express” lanes

Dedicated lanes allow for easy management and issue resolution, and also increase awareness and enrollment by drawing attention.

4. Deploy signage and staff to guide

Having directional signage with enrollment QR codes and staff to guide fans makes it feel like a VIP experience for every fan.
