Hero powers Rugby League Championships

Hero is proud to be the official event ticketing partner of Visit Moreton Bay Region for the 2018 Rugby League Commonwealth Championships.

Held at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium in the lead-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Championships boasts two days of world-class rugby league nines action. Ten Commonwealth nations will compete in a nine-a-side exhibition competition including six open women’s teams, in addition to eight men’s under 23s teams and three teams including players with physical disabilities.

Hero Events utilises hardware and software developed specifically to operate in an ‘offline’ environment, essential for events held in locations where internet access may be limited.

Hero CEO James Clay comments, “We have designed and built Hero Events with reliability in mind, suited to event locations without internet connectivity. All ticketing data is synchronised in real-time across scanning devices at the gates ensuring fraudulent tickets are not permitted. Guest lookups, ticket information, split arrivals, pass-outs and VIP functionality are all catered for within the solution, providing visitors with a streamlined entry experience.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism, Digital Marketing Manager Renee Gusa said “We plan to use Hero Events for as many future events as possible, both festival and business, given the ease of use and reliability of the system. The fact we can use iPhones and iPads to manage the ticketing process in an offline environment makes this product perfect for our needs”.

Built specifically with regional tourism in mind, Hero enables event organisers to sell tickets online, standalone or packaged in combination with local tours, activities, transport and accommodation. This provides a unique solution for boosting local tourism, encouraging extended stays and additional spending within the region.

Renee Gusa agrees, “Because Hero allows us to package event tickets with accommodation, transport and other local tours and activities, we are able to encourage visitors to stay an extra night or two and experience some of the other great attractions we have to offer in the region.  This has a huge positive impact on the local tourism industry, as guests are more likely to stay longer and experience more, rather than coming just for a single event.”
