Clear skies and a (relatively) warm night have set the scene for the international welcome reception to kick off the fifth edition of Ticketing Technology Forum this evening.

It’s finally here! Delegates have flown in today from over 40 countries, representing many of the world’s most significant ticketing organisations to be a part of EMEA’s #1 ticketing meeting… and we have a feeling it’s going to be a good one.

The free Guinness bar was put to good use and it was warming to see familiar faces reconnecting, and new introductions going smoothly over a glass of Ireland’s best.

Ian Nuttall, Forum Founder commented: ‘I’ve already met delegates from Spain, France, Portugal, Canada, Australia, Norway, Greece and beyond… and it’s only been 20 minutes. It’s very humbling to see that a meeting that was just an idea 5 years ago has spread all over the world. I cannot wait for the next two days’

Something special for ticketing is happening in Dublin right now, don’t forget to follow us live on Twitter @TicketTechForum.
