"We have been marketing our events with DesignMyNight since covid hit and they have been incredibly valuable as we looked to rebuild.
Now the project is stronger than ever, and we know that our ideas or concerns will be attentively heard by our communicative and insightful account manager, George.
We have found the software to be user-friendly and full of helpful features. We look forward to continuing to grow with DesignMyNight."
“The Tonic system is very user friendly and easy to get on with. As we work on a ticketed basis at our venue the Tonic system helps allocated slots and to add or increase our capacity.
Little things like moving tickets – which happens a lot – obtaining guest lists and giving refunds is very easy.
The team are always on hand to help. Marketing is always great, especially for a small brand like us getting exposure on the DesignMyNight website and on social media.
The team are always friendly and happy to help within fast timescales, which is also a bonus.
We work with other providers and their systems are nowhere near as efficient. We love having DesignMyNight as our main ticket provider and the direct link for our customers from our website.”

Ticketing software FAQs
What is an event ticketing system?
An event ticketing system provides a digital platform for the promotion and management of ticketed events. By using a digital ticketing platform event planners can sell tickets 24/7 online and monitor every sale through an online dashboard.
Some event ticketing systems also support a quick and easy check-in process for attendees on the door by use of a scanning app which helps with organisation of busy events and helps deliver a better experience for your attendees.
Event ticketing software enables hospitality businesses to diversify their offering to attract new guests or promote their venue to a new audience.
Is an online event ticketing system free?
Online event ticketing systems are often free to use with a fee taken from ticket sales. Access Tonic is free for operators to use and set up on their website, with a fee taken from each ticket sold. You can control if that fee is absorbed into the ticket price completely, the customer pays it via a booking fee, or it can also be split depending on the percentage you choose.
Are there any hidden fees?
No, there's no hidden fees.
There’s also no upfront cost to list your events through Tonic; we operate on a booking fee basis which you can either pass on to your customer or absorb in the cost of the ticket price.
Our standard rates are as follows:
Free tickets – no fee
£39.99 and under – 10% fee
£40 to £69.99 – 8% fee
£70 and above – 6% fee
We differ from most competitors in that we are one fixed fee – we don’t pass on card processing fees/add ons - this is all covered in the above pricing structure.
