Our Hot Tickets Programme invites leading organisations to the Forum who are looking to evaluate upgrades to their ticketing, CRM, membership or digital marketing platforms in the next 18 months and will be ‘shopping around’ on site.

With networking at the heart of the Forum, the programme was introduced to facilitate the most succesful networking opportunities in the industry.

The programme was a huge success over the last two years, with a huge list of organisations attending in Dublin and meeting with some of the indsutry’s key suppliers – and the feedback was that, as a result of the Forum, a fair few exciting decisions were made on site.

For 2018 we will host 50+ Hot Tickets on site in Manchester on 17-18 April, joining 500+ ticketing business leaders… we like to call them ‘Hotties’.
