Webtickets is a business initiative developed by Silverspider web systems in 2001. Since Silverspider's inception the business has been providing e-commerce and content management solutions to businesses in South Africa.
Webtickets is the market leader in South Africa in providing niche integrated ticketing solutions to a range of event organisers that puts you in direct control of their customer relationships, brand and revenue potential.
Innovation in the Ticketing Industry
Webticket's ticketing, marketing and development solutions are changing the industry by enabling venues to directly manage patron relationships. Unlike ticketing providers that compete with sports and entertainment organisations for consumer spend, Webtickets enables venues and event organisers to sell directly to their customers. In doing so, Webtickets helps these organisations to sell available tickets, capture unrealised revenues, strengthen their brands and foster intimate and profitable customer relationships.
