Graphically Driven Maps

Our maps are built to be true-to-form with all the curves, rows, and isles. Everything is shown true to scale. Additional images and graphics can be added such as legends, logos, sponsors…anything you can think of.map-graphics-using-Purplepass

User-Friendly Map Builder

Promoters have the ability to design their own maps with Purplepass. Our map builder is incredibly intuitive, allowing you to effortlessly create custom pricing tiers, seating sections, tables, rows, shapes, and more, all tailored to your event's unique needs. Say goodbye to convoluted processes and sluggish software - our user-friendly platform streamlines the map-building experience, ensuring you have the freedom and flexibility to bring your vision to life.

Color Codes and Pricing Options

Visually show the pricing and sections of seats by color coding on the map.

This makes it easy for your guests to get a bird's-eye view of the price of the seats and decide which one they want to purchase.


Seating Map Stats

You will have access to a comprehensive stats tool designed to provide detailed insights into your seating map's configuration. This tool can display various crucial metrics, including the status of each seat—whether it's on sale, on hold, or hidden. Additionally, it offers a breakdown of the total number of tables, the rows, and the number of seats each row contains. 

Custom Preview of Stage

You have the ability to upload photos of the stage from the perspective of each seat. This unique functionality grants your guests an immersive, hyper-realistic view of the stage, allowing them to envision what it would be like to occupy a particular seat. Say goodbye to guesswork and hello to unparalleled transparency - our platform offers your guests an authentic glimpse into their event experience.seat-preview-purplepass-seating-map

Handicap Seating Support

Clearly indicate which seats are reserved for handicapped seating; accessible seat, companion seat, wheelchair space. 

In addition to showing a wheelchair icon over the seat, you can also add alerts and confirmations to guests to ensure they realize a given seat may be handicapped or even that it’s a wheelchair space.

Support for Every Size

Whether your venue holds only 25 people or has over 20,000 seats, it’s not a problem with Purplepass.

Create Custom Messages for Guests

You can add customized notes on seats to pass on valuable information to your guests.

If a seat is on hold, available only at the box office, or even if the seat is reserved for sale through an outlet, you can identify all of this, so guests have all the facts in front of them when deciding which seats they want.


Add media, images, graphics

Add an array of custom images and graphics, from legends and logos to sponsors and icons representing the location of the bar and coat check. Our intuitive interface gives you complete control for adding media, selecting images from the image library, icons, graphics, etc. 

Add built-in icons and symbols

We have several built-in icons that can be easily added to your seating map to indicate the location of the bathroom, bar, coat check, merchandise booth, security, first aid, ATM, concessions, and so on.

Support for tables, rows, booths, etc. 

Our seating system allows for huge flexibility. Whether you are selling seats in rows, seats at a table, whole tables, selling booths for your vendors, or a combination of all of them, they are all supported and easily shown on your seating map.


Auto Social Distancing Tool (ASD)

ASD is the solution to assigned seating in the COVID-19 world. Meaning, the tool will give promoters the ability to define social distancing space on their seating maps, while maintaining it throughout the event(s). 

Here’s how it works. 

The tool will automatically apply space around seats within a group or individual seats. Promoters can start by having all their seats for sale via Purplepass using a seating map. As customers purchase tickets, the system will automatically put seats on hold around the party based on the distancing values set in their account. 

Guests can purchase individual seats or sit together; regardless of their party size, the system will still distance them properly. You can learn more about the ASD tool here
