About the client

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) is the largest nature conservation charity in the UK, dedicated to protecting species and habitats.


RSPB hosts events at their nature reserves, providing unique opportunities to connect with nature and get behind the scenes to experience their reserves. Wildlife events occur throughout the year at their 186 nature reserves throughout the UK, with a range of experiences from boat trips, insect trapping, bat detecting and indoors learning. 


The COVID-19 pandemic certainly represented a major challenge for venues. Many organisations were forced to quickly adapt to the restrictions imposed on the event industry. 

The RSPB team wanted to turn challenge into opportunity. In cooperation with the Nutickets team, they took the downtime as a chance to invest in technology and, move their event management solution to the cloud.

Nutickets was selected as the full-cycle unified platform, best suited to meet all RSPB's event and venue management needs:

“We are thrilled to be powering events for the largest nature conservation charity in the UK. We will be offering our newest event platform to streamline the processes and events and experiences across RSPB’s nature reserves allowing the teams across the UK to focus on their important goals – playing their part in the fight against the nature and climate emergency” said Phil Haynes, Key Account Manager at Nutickets.

Visibility Groups

RSPB manage 186 nature reserves throughout the UK, each offering their own unique conservation work and events to enjoy the great outdoors. They needed a complete system that allowed individual reserves to manage events, but also allowed high-level control governance. The Nutickets visibility group feature gave the local reserves sight of their own events, reports and customers, whilst automatically syncing the data to the RSPB parent account.

Fully branded

It was important for RSPB to be able to maintain its instantly recognisable branding to continue the connection to its community. Nutickets customisation allowed RSPB to imprint their colour, theme and layouts until the entire experience was seamless. The result was a professional, fully-branded event website, event listing and landing pages for their reserves.

Custom integrations

The Nutickets team developed custom integrations, to seamlessly support RSPB’s existing IT infrastructure. Custom development allowed RSPB to connect multiple vendors, including a financial management application, to the Nutickets platform. Nutickets API access and development support allowed RSPB to simplify how they manage events.
