At the record-breaking Ticketing Technology Forum 2017 in Dublin (5-6 April 2017), our industry-leading attendees were offered exclusive return tickets on site to join the (newly rebranded) TheTicketingBusiness Forum 2018 at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester (17-18 April 2018).

The return offer included exclusive pre-sale discount and complimentary hotel nights at (the not even built yet) Hilton Garden Inn on site at Emirates Old Trafford… and as a result, before we even launched 2018’s Forum we are officially SOLD OUT at HQ Hotel.

Planning on joining but missed out at HQ hotel? Not a problem. We’re already taking bookings at our overflow hotel – Hotel Football – with a FREE hotel night included with Super Earlybird passes. Book yours now.

Ian Nuttall, Founder, commented:

“We have no doubts that the Forum is fast becoming THE ticketing meeting of the year around the globe, but we didn’t anticipate announcing a hotel sell out more than a year in advance, before we’ve even officially launched the event, and before the hotel is even built!

With 40+ countries now represented, top industry names jumping at the chance to get on our stage and an internationally-recognised Awards event, we’re ready for some serious growth in the coming years… and we’ve only just begun.”

Official general tickets will be released very soon, but if you want to get involved in EMEA’s #1 ticketing business meeting get in touch to pre-register.

The best networking place I've been to. I was able to get very high level leads and meet relevant partners. You did a great great job to gather such high level and exhaustive people!

At the Forum we made concrete progress with regards to selecting a new ticketing provider. I would be happy to recommend the Forum to other venues in the future.

If you’re curious about the future, if you want to see how things are developing, if you wanna get to know your peers... you need to be at the Forum.

For me the most important thing was to meet with all the different companies in ticketing and I’ve managed that, and I left with many business cards!
