Ticketing People are People Too – Bolton Wanderers FC

Our Hot Tickets Programme invites leading organisations to TheTicketingBusiness Forum who are looking to evaluate upgrades to their ticketing, CRM, membership or digital marketing platforms in the next 18 months and will be ‘shopping around’ on site.

In an effort to get to know our Hot Ticket recipients (we like to call them Hotties), we asked each of them a few questions in a quickfire interview.

It would be pretty boring to just ask about the upgrades they are evaluating at the Forum (although of course we asked this too), so we threw in a few curve ball questions too. Enjoy!

Next up is Daniel Scott – Ticket Office Manager for Bolton Wanderers Football Club, who will be joining the Forum on 17-18 April at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.
