As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee.
Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?
You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name).
I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?
Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event.
