For the past seven years, TheTicketingBusiness Forum has been connecting the ticketing eco-system together. This year’s event brought together a global gathering of business leaders who are delivering the next generation of entertainment, ticketing, marketing, CRM, and data solutions.
Our founder, Ian Nuttall, reminds us that ticketing is no longer in isolation. We need to make sure we don’t miss out on fantastic networking opportunities such as TheTicketingBusiness Forum – and we’re here to show you how our event can make a difference to your businesses.
Ian added during the conference: “Everybody here (TBF19) has something to offer to the future eco-system. So let’s get connected.”
We caught up with a few of our sponsors, who can better explain what TBF19 has done for them and the value of getting the top minds of the ticketing industry under one roof.
James Kirby, director of Tixserve, a white label B2B digital ticket fulfilment platform, said: “Tixserve was proud to sponsor the Ticketing Business Forum. Each year, this conference gives companies the opportunity to present in front of industry leaders and decision makers. The two day event included seminars and discussions that provided insights into the future of ticketing.
“It is the perfect event for pushing your company forward, with Q&As, presentations, seminars, you are guaranteed new client leads after attending. The Ticketing Business Forum provides the perfect platform to grow, once you take the opportunity.”
Cameron Hoy, chief operating officer and head of ticketing of TEG, our Ticketing Business of the Year said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the ticketing and technology industry and all who work in it. The forum has provided invaluable insights and connections. I leave the forum invigorated by the event.”
PixelPin, who were a big hit among the ticketing industry this year, are an image-based authentication software solution.
“One of our main clients are ticketing websites, such as TixCraft in Taiwan. If users want to buy a ticket, you can login using PixelPin.
“This is our first ticketing conference, and we’ve seen it as a huge opportunity to make many new contacts.”
Softjourn’s Lyubomyr Nykyforuk told us: “This is our first time exhibiting here. It’s great, you can make arrangements for meetings with potential clients, network and actually expose ourselves.”
TodayTix, an international theatre ticketing platform, said: “This is our first year at the conference. A lot of us at TodayTix read the newsletter, and after learning about the forum and looking at past attendees, we thought ‘that’s a great group of people we can learn from and talk to. We’re here mostly to see what’s new and find out where there are partnership opportunities.”
