Maximise promotion and ticket sales.
Whatever type of event or festival you run – large-scale music event, small family fun day, annual festival or sports event – you can diversify your distribution or become bookable online for the first time, to drive bookings via your local destination website.
Pay nothing until you sell tickets online
Promote your event or festival through as many channels as you like, you will only be charged for tickets sold – just 2.5 percent + VAT commission to TXGB, plus any commission due to your chosen distribution channels.
Partner with your destination on ticket sales
TXGB enables festival and events organisers to support their local destination while benefitting from direct, low-commission bookings. With commission levels on average between zero and 7.5%, you can be part of smarter regional and national marketing campaigns that are focused on conversions. The ‘what’s on’ and event listing features will start to drive direct bookings, using your own terms and conditions, with full ownership of your own data. Improve your customers’ journeys by making it easier for them to go from ‘look’ to ‘book’ on destination websites.

Still got questions?
How much does it cost to use?
Event organisers pay a 2.5% plus VAT booking fee to TXGB for each booking, and then any commission owed to distributors as agreed when you opt into their channels. Distributor commission is clearly displayed prior to opt-in and the 2.5% plus VAT booking fee is only paid out when a TXGB originated online booking takes place, not before. There’s no cost to register.
What size business is TXGB designed for?
TXGB has been designed to enable bookings for everything from large scale tournaments, through to small local festivals and events. No matter your size or scope, we can accommodate you in the booking exchange.
How do I get payment for bookings through TXGB?
For bookings made via a direct booking website the money goes straight into your account. Distributor commissions and booking fees are automatically settled by TXGB in the following month.
For bookings through online travel agent (OTA) websites, which use ‘on account’ payment, you’ll receive your money according to their individual processes. TXGB will send you an email reminding you of the booking and the need to collect payment from the OTA or agent.
What if I don’t have my own website?
You don’t need a website to link to TXGB but we strongly suggest that you have one. Your website is a really important marketing tool – where consumers will go to look, and often book. You can create booking pages for your own website from the TXGB platform, once you’ve bought a domain name and done some basic website design.
What if I don’t have a booking system?
If you don’t have your own booking system, we can still get you up and running on the part of the system called TxLoad. This allows you to load up your availability and prices manually.
We recommend that you sign up for a booking system further down the line, but if you don’t have one yet, then TxLoad is a good starting point.
