Graduation ceremony party tickets are the entry passes or tickets to a ceremony, which is being held to celebrate the graduation accomplishment of the passing out class. The ticket serves as permission to enter the party as well as enjoy the happenings of the party. The tickets are issued by the organizers and purchased by the potential attendees by paying the price of the ticket.
A graduation ceremony is an important event not for the institute, but for the students and their parents as well. Therefore, it is celebrated with full zeal, and all efforts are extended to make the day a memorable one. The costs that are incurred in the organization of the ceremony and party are mainly covered by the income generated by selling the tickets.
It is not necessary that the graduation ceremony party is organized by the institute. A group of friends, juniors, seniors, individuals, etc., can arrange such a party as well. The purpose remains the same, i.e. the celebration of the graduation. Ticket selling is the usual tactic to cover the expense, except for when the party is being thrown by the friends, who are not charging anything.
In addition to the cost coverage, tickets have another role to play. Sometimes, the graduating students want to celebrate with their friends and family. If the tickets are available to people other than the students, it becomes possible for the family and friends to purchase the tickets and attend the party.
When the institute organizes the party, it usually occurs after the main graduation ceremony. The party tickets are made available at the institute premises as well as some other chosen and advertised places, which are easily accessible to the students and their acquaintances. The number of tickets is specified, and no extra tickets than the available capacity are printed and issued. This helps in better organization and management of the party.
The type of tickets could be more than one. Often, there are some free passes, which are the tickets that are given to a few special people without any charges. Another category is the VIP tickets, followed by the general category. The former one costs more than the latter and is accompanied by more offerings.
The information mentioned on the tickets is very important, and hence must be chosen and reviewed properly. The details can vary, and depend on various factors, such as the organizer of the party, the capacity of the party, etc. Nevertheless, the following details are usually included on all the graduation ceremony party tickets:
- Organizer (name, brand name, etc.) of the party.
- Any slogan, logo, or other images.
- Date of the party.
- Time of the party.
- Type of the ticket.
- Price of the ticket.
- No. of attendees per ticket.
- Seat number/special slot, if applicable.
- Offerings, such as music, food stalls, fireworks, photographers, etc.
- Free stuff, like free drinks, one free photograph, etc.
The graduation ceremony party tickets are one-time tickets, which means they cannot be reused. To mark the used tickets, often the ticket is partly torn by the organizers once the ticket-holder enters the party. In addition, after the date of the party gets passed, the ticket becomes invalid and worthless. The organizers try to control the ticket selling by specifying the selling spots, but ticket scalping or ticket reselling often becomes an escapable and difficult thing for the organizers to manage.
The initial ticket buyers may resell the tickets at a higher price to others and make a profit. Such acts are illegal, and legal action can be taken against the culprits.
