Ismail Elshareef joined Ticketmaster last year to help build a platform that drives both internal and external product innovation worldwide. The gateway to this platform is a set of empathic APIs that developers will love. Its future customers are the API clients who will need to use the platform without having to learn the intricacies and understand the complexities of Ticketmaster’s systems.


Ismail Elshareef will be presenting at Ticketing Technology Forum 2016

As VP of Open Platform and Innovation at Ticketmaster, Ismail’s team has been hard at work over the past several months simplifying the complexity of the systems and focusing on the developer experience with a set of clean, well-documented APIs – with a first release earlier this year.

He’s now been out on the road at Ticketmaster’s devjam and hackathons, educating and embracing the developer community.

“Open APIs level the innovation playing field for all, which in turn lights a fire under everybody to think big and deliver fast,” says Ismail.

It’s the first time he’s presenting his work to a European audience, and we’re delighted to have him with us in Dublin at #TTF16.

Meet Ismail and get the inside track on Ticketmaster’s Open Platform and API initiatives – exclusively at #TTF16. Book your seat here.
