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!
