Ticketing: Paying the price
Room 1 | 14:00 – 15:15 | Wednesday
Chair: Tim Chambers, TJ Chambers Consultancy (UK)
The first point of contact for fans, the evolution of ticketing continues to be driven through innovation and new technology. Consistently one of ILMC’s most popular sessions, the 2018 debate will put pricing under the microscope, as well as the volume of inventory that pre-sales are now removing from the market; improvements in pricing strategies; transparency in pricing and fees; and bundling – how concepts such as ‘slow ticketing’ and Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan are changing the way in which the business transacts with fans. Chair Tim Chambers will also consider updates on secondary ticketing, including lessons that primary ticketers have learned through their resale rivals, and recent successes of various campaigns to persuade legislators to regulate the sector.
