Before I begin with project specifics, I just want to let you know that this website is for a client of mine and doesn't involve any E-commerce and can be coded in anything, as long as it has all the features, but I prefer Wordpress.
Example Websites from Competitors
We can use any templates that you have or can get, but there will be features that need to be implemented for this website to work according to clients needs.
The website will allow a person to do the following:
1) On the Homepage they should be able to search/select a show
a) Either from list drop-down menu, b) Specifc Date, c) Date Range (ex: 12/2/2012 - 12/5/2012)
2) On show page, they will need to be able to select the date they would like to attend the show
3) After they select date, they will be taken to a page where they fill in basic information.
4) Once submitted, they get taken to a ticket page which has their information on it, as well as the address of where the show will take place. User will need to be able to also print this page.
Somehow, 3 days before the date of the show, people who have signed up for a ticket to a show should get a reminder via email, and in the email they will need to confirm if they are attending or not, this can be an easy button, which should this information should show for the client when viewing who is attending the shows.
This information will all need to be saved somehow in order for client to access this information, by selecting show and seeing list of people attending and who is confirmed or not. User should be able to add shows, show dates, show descriptions, images, and videos.
Let me know if you have any questions.
