The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted virtually every industry, including the performing arts. Due to restrictions associated with the pandemic, ticket sales plummeted to an all-time low. According to this study, ticket sales dropped by 86% between March 2020 and March 2021 in the US.
As we are easing from the grip of the pandemic, many businesses have digitized their processes to match the growing digital population. Performing arts organizations have not been left behind as performing arts digital program books are slowly gaining traction.
Here is why you need to publish digital program books.
Digital program books eliminate the extra cost of printing, shipping, and delivery of printed program books. Additionally, digital program books cost about 80%-90% less than printed ones.
