Formula 1® Rolex Grand Prix Hits Australia 14 March – 17 March 2013

Gentlemen (and women), start your engines! If you’re a racing fan in Australia, one of the most exciting events of the year is soon to come your way. Starting 14 March, Melbourne’s fabulous Albert Park will become home to the first leg of this year’s Formula One World Championship™ season.

Local fans have a lot to look forward to with two well-known Aussies, Mark Webber and Daniel Ricciardo, lined up against each other for the second consecutive year.

Not only that, but with more than four Formula One World Champions™ listed on the track, this event will no doubt be very exciting start to the racing season.

Breakfast with the Stars

Just one of many events that will take place during this action-packed weekend, the exclusive Grand Prix Breakfast will be hosted Saturday the 16th at one of Melbourne’s chicest venues, the Crown Palladium.

This brand new 2013 event will feature notable appearances from special guests in motorsport and racing, like Kimi Räikkönen, Jenson Button and Sergio Perez. You’ll also be captivated by performances from popular names in entertainment, like Ricki-Lee Coulter and Aussie Legend Jimmy Barnes.

And if that’s not enough to feed your fancy, you can relish in performances by Cirque du Soleil’s Australian tour of OVO.

Buy a premium ticket to this event, and you’ll get the incredible chance to have one of the top names in motorsport to join you at your table.

Tickets, Get Your Tickets!

Ticket buyers have the option of purchasing a four-day pass as well as individual, daily passes. Not only is this convenient for the fans, but you can even attend the event on Thursday for FREE!

See the Total Oil International Sports Cars Qualifying Session and the Mazda 6 Celebrity Challenge Qualifying Session, in addition to numerous practice sessions, at absolutely no charge to you. Does it get any better than that?

It certainly could! If you can get in free on Thursday the 14th, why not celebrate the money you saved by hosting your own motorsport get together?

Instead of dishing out a pretty penny to buy day-passes, find some low cost event tickets and host your own race-viewing event on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

You could have it at the local pub, in your own home, or anywhere there’s a telly big enough for all your friends to see the racecars zooming, and loud enough to hear the engines revving.

Jazz it up!

by admin on January 20, 2011

Are you a starving artist or a struggling musician? If you’ve devoted your life to creative pursuit, it can often be difficult to shift gears and turn your attention to the making of money, but, no matter how much your music sustains you, you still need money to live. Independent artists who are in any part responsible for enticing fans to attend their concert can take a few simple steps to start selling more event tickets.

Consider this: if you have fans, they’re already interested in buying concert tickets. Your fans like you and want to hear you play. So, are you doing enough to give them what they need? The best motivation for true supporters to attend your shows is advance knowledge.

You don’t need an expensive advertisement campaign. Rather you need to focus your efforts. Those fans who wish to purchase event tickets to hear you play: where are they?

  • Record stores
  • Dance clubs
  • Concert Venues

Think about where they’re likely to be found, and invest a little money in some eye-catching Posters or Flyers. You’ll get the maximum return in tickets sold for the minimum investment. For a few dollars, you can reach hundreds of people.

More that likely, your fans are also on Facebook and Twitter. Are you? If you haven’t created a Facebook fan page and begun reaching out to your existing fan base while creating new listeners, go do that right now!

If you do have a fan page, make sure to communicate regularly, at least once a week, although once a day is better. Don’t overdo it, but do make sure to offer a few posts reminding people of upcoming concerts, letting them know when and where they can buy tickets, along with all the details about the upcoming concert. Some bands report that these Facebook posts are the number one motivator in selling concert tickets!

All Together Now

by admin on August 24, 2010

Planning a charity event? The perfect combination of charity, venue, sponsor, and entertainment can benefit everyone involved, long after the event ends. Here’s how:

Your charity stands for something. You know what it is, and so do your supporters. Your event should earn money for your charity through Event Ticket sales, and it should entertain your supporters, but it should also attract new supporters, provide exposure for those who give generously of their time, and, if you are clever about it, really benefit your sponsors as well.

Rather than renting out a hall, perhaps you can make a deal with a popular local venue. Do you already have a relationship with a particular pub? Is it located in the centre of things, near foot traffic and other night spots? Ideal! Rather than paying the full fee to rent a space and hire people to serve drinks, you can hold your event in a pub. They’ll benefit from increased drink sales during your event. If you’ve chosen a good location, you and the venue can benefit as passersby see there is something special going inside and decide to check it out.

If you can find performers that support your charity or relate to it, they may be persuaded to donate the evening’s entertainment in exchange for the exposure. New bands may be happy to perform, but think outside the box. Does your charity help animals? Perhaps you can work with the local human society. An animal fashion show or an adoption event may help everyone. Consider who can help, and how they might benefit.

As for sponsors, many local business are happy to donate their name and their goods to worthy charities. It’s wonderful exposure and good business. Selling Raffle Tickets with Event Tickets can help them earn more money and increase traffic to their shops. Simply being affiliated with your group can earn them goodwill, and, of course, their charitable donations should decrease their tax burden.

So, before you plan your next event, consider all the people you could be helping, and then plan accordingly.
