Ready steady launch!
Last week, tickets went on sale for the Olympic Games via the official London 2012 website. In a week which saw both the unveiling of the ‘official’ countdown clock and its spectacular breakdown only hours later, all eyes have been on the website to see if it would cope with the sheer volume of people looking to purchase tickets for the different events.
We don’t host the website, but as a fellow hosting provider, we are pleased to say that so far no hitches have occurred at all and despite the constant flow of traffic, inquires and information, it is holding up very well.
As past concerts and sporting occasions have shown, getting the online ticket service right isn’t always easy and in many cases sites have gone down within minutes of them going live – creating consumer frustration and a sheer buying panic. A lot of pressure and national pride is riding on the success of the London 2012 Games and this was the first major hurdle organisers had to face. As proud hosters and Brits we are pleased to see the process go smoothly.
Now let’s bring home the gold!!
