Today the official website of Lucca Comics and Games 2015 has been renewed. Like every year changed layout of the site and added some new features. Among the new pages appeared a notice regarding ticket sales.
AND YES, THERE WILL BE ‘LIMITING THE TICKET SALE OF 80,000 PER DAY.
CONSIDERING ALL 4 DAYS TICKETS WILL BE ISSUED 320,000.
OTHER GREAT NEWS ‘AND’ THE BEGINNING OF ADVANCE FROM 1 September 2015 INSTEAD FROM BEGINNING OF OCTOBER.
COSTS WILL BE LINKED TO TYPE OF DAY AND WILL PRESS IN NEXT FEW DAYS
Concerns have rightly immediate, but doing some calculation you can see that the values are not as restrictive as you might think.
Whereas in 2013 it is sold 182,217 in 2014 and 240,000 approximately, we can estimate a slow growth of about 60,000 tickets each year. Adding this 60,000 to last year we get right to 300,000. A 20,000 tickets more security, are a mandatory option.
The real question will be able to contain all visits for Saturday and Sunday, the days typically peak of the fair. We have the official data of the tickets sold in four days, but was never specified the sale for each day. Neither should we forget subscriptions, which can not be considered the same way as ordinary tickets for the daily limit. You should consider a subscription as 4 individual tickets. Then when the person buys a ticket for 4 days, it will be accepted only by three days because Sunday is sold-out?
To go beyond limits and costs, personally I think it’s just a tactic to increase trade tickets sold online. Creating fears in the visitors do not arrive in time to buy the ticket, there will be a rush to buy. Also there will be a volunteer force in changing the day visit to the people who will be considered beyond the limit of tickets. A stretch wanted to distribute some of the visitors of the weekend to weekdays.
