Ticket Bundles / Multiple Event Passes
Set up ticket bundles - for example selling a All Access Pass (all events) or a Pass for a couple of events that provides either tickets for each event and/or for limited seat events a count per pass purchased towards each single event included in the pass.
This is something we are specifically hoping to do when we build recurring events support for Event Tickets. (see http://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3685663-recurring-event-support-for-tickets)
Please please please do this.....it is really needed.

Another benefit of this:
Automatically provide a membership to someone who purchases a ticket.
For example, someone purchases and attends my Training Camp. By default, they now have access to exclusive content online. WooCommerce Memberships can do this right now. The problem is that I have to continually add new tickets to the Membership settings that will trigger entrance.
Solution? MULTIPLE EVENTS, SAME TICKET :)

Multiple Events, Same Ticket
It's simple but powerful. Create one ticket. Apply it to multiple events.
We run training camps. The pricing is always the same: Early Bird, Regular, and Day Of. It's a hassle to create unique tickets for each event. But... But if you allow the Same Ticket to be used for Multiple Events, well, then I say to you: PROBLEM SOLVED!

A true recurring event is repeated, and each event can stand on its own, like church is repeated every Sunday.
A series has beginning and an end, and not all events in the series are created equal. Generally someone must sign up/purchase a whole series, like a four week class, where you can't just show up on week 2 or 3.
I suggest a series should have these added features:
* Option to list where event lands in the series in event Title (week 1 of 4, week 2 of 4, etc)
* Option to always hide all instances beyond 1st from list views (remain on monthly calendar view) - I feel this needs further explanation. I want somone looking at the monthly calendar to see that classes are running tonight (especially useful for people currently enrolled), but when they are looking at the list of upcoming classes (/events/category/classes/list) they don't need to know about a class that started who weeks ago and still as two weeks remaining (currently this is what happens. When week one has passed, week two remains on this list. Once this is over, week 3 is on the list). This crowds out the actual information they are seeking, which is a new class series in which they can enroll.
-perhaps I would be satisfied with a button to "duplicate this event" and then let me manually add in weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. This way I can retitle them as needed, and give all the week 1's a separate 'category' to pull for the list view. While this solution isn't as good, it would still save us some time.

I am re-doing the site of a non-profit teacher organization which has an annual training conference. Like most conferences, there is an opening 'general session', followed by a series of 'breakout' time slots, each of which could have multiple (4-6) choices, and a closing general session. As a means of gauging interest and allocating the various sizes of breakout rooms, I need the ability to allow an attendee to indicate which breakout sessions they plan to attend. Separate attendee lists for each breakout session would also be most helpful.
Ability to bundle individual events into season ticket passes and still be able to view the attendees for each event included in the season and view the individual events on the calendar.
Example: I offer a knitting series "Knitting beyond the basics" it is made up of 5 classes each covering a different topic. Cables, Lace, Color work, ect. My students can sign up for any class they want to for $25, but if they sign up for all 5 it only costs $100. It would be really nice to offer this type of grouping. I don't know if the tickets you use can use the woocommerce product bundles plug-in or not but that might be a way to make it work.
Figured it out for my situation. For WooCommerce, there's an addon you can get called Product Bundles. You can group a bunch of tickets into one product and sell them together. Tickets come through just as they always have. Perfect.
Still be cool to be a part of the plugin though.
Yes. Any chance of this happening... in the next few days at all? I'm working on a project and this would be exactly what I needed.
I need to sell "tables" of 10 for a certain price. I only want people to see one price and get all ten tickets at the same time. Any way to do this even with a hack of some kind?

This would be particularly handy for multiple events - like classes. For example, a class pf 10 events, that can be sold together or individually, where the customer doesn't necessarily need to attend all 10, but could get a discount by purchasing maybe 4 or more.
What's more important though, is giving the ability to show these bundled tickets correctly in reporting, because currently any ticket bundling doesn't report correctly.
Cool idea, thanks for posting!
