Charles Russell Speechlys hosts Future of Ticketing Summit

As part of Charles Russell Speechlys’ ongoing Integrity Services series, our sports team hosted an interactive round table last month, exploring the major issues in ticketing for sporting and entertainment events, particularly surrounding ticket touting. The event featured speakers and guests from a variety of sporting and entertainment fields, discussing the technology that might help pave the way forward to a more transparent system in the future.

We were delighted to welcome amongst our guests John Steel QC, who shared with attendees his experience dealing with ticket touts at Cheltenham Racecourse. To view our interview with John, please see the video below.
