We have an action-packed day ahead of us so get ready to learn new ideas from the brightest and best in the ticketing industry at Ticketing Technology Forum 2015.

Michael Spradbery of IBM Cloud Software will be kicking us off this morning with a session on “what’s happening in the world of mobile phone technology” while Andy Maguire from Ipsos MediaCT will be examining trends in mobile phone and social media usage.

Following a short break and opportunity to network in The Marketplace, a panel session on turning engagement into ticket sales will feature representatives from Servette FC 1890, Red Bull Air Race and Minor Entertainment.

Then we’re into driving revenue and interaction on-site with Steven Armstrong of Feld Entertainment followed by a case study on 3D mapping from Paris Saint-Germain and PACIFA decision.

Once we’ve all enjoyed some lunch and more networking, we’ll come back to the quickfire Innovations Showcase and then opportunities within cloud technology with Beat Schwegler of Microsoft.

One more break in The Marketplace and then we examine new technology with a session covering the online payment journey with Worldpay and then finishing up with a panel discussion on major event sales, with Sports Ink Associates, MATCH Services and Lancashire County Cricket Club all taking part.

Even after the sessions are done, the day’s not done yet as there’s an International Networking Party in the SkyBar (at Hilton London Wembley) from 19.00 to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Join us for a Guinness and some Jameson Irish Whiskey as you relax before Day Two!
