How to create different ticket types in FooEvents using WooCommerce variations and attributes

One of the many strengths of FooEvents is that it leverages powerful functionality that is built into the WooCommerce core. A good example of this is the way FooEvents uses WooCommerce Variable products to create different ticket types.

For example, you may need to sell different types of tickets at various prices based on the area of the event that the attendee should have access to.
