Future of Ticketing Summit
In what is set to be a major year for high profile events, with two men’s World Cups in rugby and cricket, two women’s World Cups in football and netball, and the return of Glastonbury, we are pleased to invite you to join us for our Future of Ticketing Summit.
Protecting fans, preserving the integrity of ticketing programmes and making sure ticket proceeds end up in the right place are priorities for any major event organiser. The risks and opportunities around ticketing have never been greater as you will hear from those transforming the sector including, speakers and panellists from the RFU, the police, Monterosa and Aventus, as well as John Steel QC.
We will cover the challenges of touting and the secondary markets, the limitations of the current legal framework and how best to harness the law and modern technology to ensure that financial integrity is preserved and fans’ interests prioritised.
Our panel of expert speakers will lead the discussion along four key themes:
- “How can the law be used more effectively?”
- “Is technology the solution?”
- “Major sports events: What measures are sports event organisers taking in different territories to address ticketing issues?”
- “Rising to the enforcement challenge – public/private initiatives”
The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
