How do I create an event?

When you showcase your event(s) on Sticky Tickets, each event is granted its dedicated web page. This page serves as the central hub where you can input event details, incorporate logos/images, and most importantly, provide a seamless avenue for patrons to acquire tickets or register for attendance. The flexibility we offer allows you to set up and manage multiple events concurrently on the Sticky Tickets platform.

To initiate the process of creating an event, it's imperative that you've completed the registration as an organiser. Once your registration is complete, you can delve into the process by either watching our quick demo or following the step-by-step guide outlined below:
