As you may be aware, any ticket that you issue for your event is created in the background as an NFT by GET Protocol.
This creationary process is deliberately kept hidden behind the scenes so that issuing tickets & servicing your event is incredibly user friendly & puts the attendee experience first.

NFTs offer completely new avenues for achieving this objective through digital experiences & collectible moments, so learning how to use your NFT Tickets can provide a lot of benefits to your event.
