Our unique Hot Tickets initiative provides guest passes to those organisations which are looking to restart and reimagine their ticketing offer. This might involve evaluating upgrades to their ticketing (or payments) platforms, or considering a new CRM back-end, or perhaps a digital marketing toolkit.

In effect, the Hotties (as we call them) will be ‘open to new ideas’ and – one assumes – new products and services during the Forum.

Here’s the venues, teams and rightsholders – including our Hotties – who have already confirmed their attendance at the 2021 Forum:
