This evening, the 10th edition of TheTicketingBusiness Forum will kick off at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester. 

On Thursday and Friday (July 7 and 8), attendees will be able to listen to talks and panels featuring the industry’s top executives from some of the largest ticketing and venue organisations, such as Ticketek, Seat Unique, Smeetz, Tix Ticketing, Tixserve, The Royal Opera House, Bristol Old Vic and more.

Topics for sessions include the exploration of dynamic pricing, the re-opening of venues and theatres post-COVID and bringing a human touch to e-commerce transactions. It is also the event’s 10th birthday, so there will be a little bit of celebration thrown in there. 

Guests will also be able to explore and discuss new opportunities in the Marketplace, a dedicated networking area and mini-expo with exhibitors waiting to answer questions and consider new ideas. 

On Thursday evening, guests will be able to attend and enjoy TheTicketingBusiness Awards, which recognise companies and individuals from across the industry. 

Categories for the awards include TheTicketingBusiness of the Year, the Disruptor Award, the Impact Award, The Executive of The Year Award, the Campaign of the Year Award, the Guest Experience Award, the Insights and Analytics Award, the Product Innovation Award, the Unsung Hero Award, and the Outstanding Achievement Award.
