@ray1claw Of course the best case is to completely remove physical/paper tickets and for that they will have to lobby event organisers.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to ray1claw

@ray1claw They can also send out passbook passes with barcode/QRs which would make things faster and eco friendly.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to ray1claw

@ray1claw Manually hunting a long printed list of ticket holders is obviously inefficient. Better way is to use bar codes/digital means.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to ray1claw

@ray1claw Did you watch the video? They know the expected volume/class of tickets and yet the counters are not prepared to handle the crowd.
