2020 Tech Events You Should Be Looking Into (Yes, We Know It's Early)

It takes a long time to plan a tech conference, but takes a long time to choose which tech events to attend, too.

Conference organisers are releasing details of their events earlier and earlier these days to give attendees a better chance to plan ahead and prioritise their networking and learning opportunities ahead of time. With that in mind, we wanted to share some fresh tech events that have recently released early details for 2020 to give you an insight into what opportunities are already available and to help you get your calendar in order as early as possible.

We'd love to have you at our inaugural workshop!

We have a beautiful product that makes organising an event easy. We take a lot of pride in what we do because we care about giving organisers and their attendees a delightful experience.

There is a lot of depth to Tito, in some ways we're a lot like In-N-Out Burger. Bear with me on this. There is so much that you can do with our product, but not everyone knows of all of it's capabilities.

We want to help our customers become power users of Tito; to get the most value out of the Tito tools, and to help make their events successful in any way we can. That's why we have created our first half-day workshop. It will take place on Thursday the 21st of March in Tito HQ in Dublin, and we still have some seats left.

Tito Activities Explained (Finally!) – With Video

Activities is one of the most powerful features of Tito. And one of the most misunderstood…

Generally when we explain our Activities feature to customers, they say something like “Oh, that’s really cool! But that’s not what I would have expected it to do, based on its name”. That’s a fair point. In our defense, naming features is hard! But we want to help clear things up.

Quick Tricks #2: Displaying a selection of tickets

Welcome back to Quick Tricks, a fortnightly series of posts sharing an actionable tip for how do something fun (and a little bit secret) in Tito. 🤫

What? Today’s post will show you how to display a specific selection of tickets on your homepage, rather than the default view of all your public tickets.

Why? When you have a lot of different ticket types, your event homepage can start to look cluttered. Sometimes you want to be able to share a link which just displays certain ticket types, and not others. For instance you might want to add a “View sponsorship packages” button on your website, which then links out to a version of your Tito event homepage showing just your sponsorship tickets. You can also use this trick to link to multiple secret tickets at once.

How? You may already know that each ticket in Tito has its own unique reference which is used to generate a direct URL to that specific ticket. It looks something like this:
