Yep we used Tickets for the Detroit Free Press Marathon..  Also integrated it with aprs and instamapper trackers..   the tracking integration was so so.. but not sure if it was on our end or not..  we had APRS running on other screens so that wasn't too big a deal.  

I also used Tickets for our county's devils night event.  Where we have 2 separate dispatch centers running and a coordination center running..  was nice to see one CAD system in all locations. as the 2 dispatch centers run different not networked systems..

It's been deployed by a good number of ARES/RACES teams, particularly for use in coordinating special events, and more than one team has kicked it into gear when they were activated.

Although Tickets was available to the voice net control operators, I do not believe they interacted with it as much as I did. We are (slowly) melting the two together and refining the system. But, yes, Tickets can be a good supplement to the APRS operations.
