So here’s the thing. Sometimes, ticketing folk are given a bit of a hard time… but, WE know that you are doing amazing things every day. We think everyone else should know this too.

Did your team smash a ticketing record? Did you survive Beyoncé’s onsale? Are you making steps to rid the world of touts? Or perhaps you simply always have smiles on your faces…

Let’s shout about it.

Tell the world how hard your team work, how utterly dedicated your squad is, how innovative your colleagues are, and how you are changing the future of the industry one ticket at a time.

The competition

We launch our brand new campaign #MyTicketTeam, inviting you to do just that. Tell us why you are the BEST, to be in with a chance to win a team off-site trip to Manchester worth more than £15,000.

How to enter

Entries are open NOW. All you need to do is:

  1. Fill in the online entry form (for up to 10 team mates)
  2. Post a short video on our Twitter page, explaining why your ticket team is better than anyone else’s

The Rules

As with any good competition, there are a few rules. Your video entry must:

  • Begin with the phrase ‘my ticket team is better than yours…’
  • Be no longer than 45 seconds in length;
  • Feature all of your team members in some way;
  • Persuade us why your ticket team is the best on the planet, in any way you see fit (don’t be afraid to get creative);
  • Outline your key achievements as a team;
  • Be signed off to share publicly;
  • And it must be posted on our Twitter page @TheTicketingBiz, including the hashtag #MyTicketTeam.

But we are not filmmakers!

Don’t worry, neither are we. We’re not expecting Spielberg-esque production values or fancy CGI, just grab your smart phone and make a compelling argument as to why you should win. And, of course, be ready to have your video shared with our 30,000-strong ticketing audience.

How do you define a ‘ticket team’?

We are open for all. We welcome submissions from any organisation that sells, delivers, markets, prints, distributes, processes, or has rights to tickets for the sports, arts, cultural and live entertainment sectors… and every supplier, agent and consultant in between.

How long do we have to enter?

Entries will at the end of October (extended deadline)

How will the winners be decided?

Once submissions are closed, we will review each video we’ve received in full. The winning team will have put forward the most compelling argument, will stand out from other entries, and set an example for the industry as a truly great ticket team – ambassadors for us all.

Winners will be announced late October, giving us plenty of time to plan your amazing trip!

What if we don’t win?

Even if you’re not the lucky team this year, you’ll enjoy free global promotion in front of our audience of 30,000 ticketing leaders (from 42 countries across 5 continents) and you’ll earn yourselves exclusive discount to join the Forum, should you wish to attend.

We’re already registered for the Forum, can we enter?

Of course! Even if you’ve already reserved your place for the Forum, you’ll still receive all of the prizes above if you win, so no excuses.
