Before your event can be put on sale, designate a Ticket Manager and fill out a "Box Office Requirements Form." Then meet with the Manager of Student Ticketing Services, Jason Govostes, to review policies and procedures six weeks prior to your event. The "Consignment Ticket Request Form" is used for requesting tickets on consignment after an event is on sale. The "Harvard Box Office logo" should be used on all posters and/or publicity for events ticketed by the box office.
