How Tickethour is going for gold at the Baku 2015 European Games

May 25, 2015

Tickethour’s success is based on its smart, scalable and reliable ticketing technologies —mobile box office, electronic ticketing, priority purchase, Print@Home, multi-feeder printers, FID technology, flexible reporting, online/offline Access Control and clever QR Code ‘Find It’ information.


These key innovations have been deployed successfully on a number of high-profile international events, including the 2011 Asian Cup and the 2015 World Handball Championships. Moreover, plenty of these core technologies will also underpin the ticketing solution at the Baku 2015 European Games, which takes place in Azerbaijan from the 12th to the 28th of June.




Baku 2015 tickets will be available through an easy-to-use website (, as well as through a variety of box offices located on multiple sites across the city. Our mobile box office technology enables tickets to be managed and printed using only a laptop and a Stimare thermal printer, reducing typical box office costs and enabling a greater number of outlets to offer tickets.

Ultimately, Tickethour’s mobile box office solution provides the reliability and accessibility that big events like Baku 2015 require, together with the convenience that customers demand.


Using mobile box office technology, any tickets bought online can be easily redeemed for physical tickets at (currently) eleven different sales points around the city of Baku. The President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev, was the first to have a ticket printed for the First European Games using Tickethour’s mobile box office technology.


Queuing times can be dramatically reduced with Tickethour’s speedy online access control technology



The Baku 2015 European Games will host more than 6,000 athletes from across Europe, competing in 20 sports at 18 different venues. Tickethour’s online Access Control System, may provide an easier and much faster ticket validation process, reducing queuing hours, even for big venues such as the 68,000-seat Olympic Stadium.


The First European Games are shaping up to be one of the biggest sporting events of 2015.


Judging by the test events that have already taken place, it is safe to say that Tickethour will deliver a gold medal-winning performance in making tickets for the Baku 2015 games accessible, convenient and secure.
