We build your maps for FREE

Although you have control to build and manage your own maps, we know you are busy, would rather do more important things like promoting your events.

So send us your map, and we will build out your venue map quickly and for free.

For venues up to 10,000 seats, we can usually have the map built and ready to go within 24 hours.


Color codes and pricing options

You can visually show the pricing and sections of seats by the color coding on the map.

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


Custom preview of stage

You can upload photos of the stage from the seats, so guests can really see what it will look like from the seat they are looking at.



Handicap seating support

Clearly indicate which seats are reserved for handicap seating.

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 guest have all the facts in front of them when deciding which seats they want.



Add media, images, graphics

You can add as many images and graphics as you like to your seating map.

This can include a legend, your logo, sponsors, or icons indicating the location of the bar and coat check.

You have full control over how beautiful your seating map is!


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 a 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 out properly. You can learn more about the ASD tool here
