A seamless ticketing system for all badge holders that opens up your Tom Tom experience!
Introducing the Tom Tom App
This year navigating Tom Tom’s hundreds of sessions will be easy with the improved Tom Tom App. Alongside a new master registration platform, Sched, which integrates with the Eventbrite ticketing platform, you’ll be able to build custom schedules, share them with your friends, meet other attendees, and review your sessions, among many other things.
With the App, everything syncs on your mobile device, and your own personal Sched will be right at your fingertips, which will come in handy during the Festival and Summits.
The Sched & Eventbrite Connection
You may have purchased a badge, an individual ticket, or even the Free Festival pass. If so, you likely did it through Eventbrite. All Eventbrite orders come with an email from Sched prompting you to create an account and start the registration process.
A QUICK TUTORIAL ON LINKING YOUR TICKET
Building your schedule!
Sched is our official Scheduling Platform. You can create a personalized schedule, share it with your friends, and sync it to your calendar. Having a Conference, All Access or Patron Badge grants you access to an amazing array of programming — workshops, keynotes, receptions, and more! In order to explore all that you can access, we encourage you to browse through all of our programming on Sched. Please note: You do NOT need to use Sched to reserve your seat in a session. All sessions begin seating 10 minutes prior to start time and are seated to capacity. All headliners and keynotes have reserved seating for Patrons, and preferential access is given to smaller rooms that frequently reach capacity.
