Ticketed organisations can often play that “we sell more tickets than you” game.

Well for our closing keynote, we are delighted to have one the best at this game – The Edinburgh Fringe Society.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world’s largest Arts Festival, who distributed over 2.3 million tickets for 50,000 performances of 3,314 shows in 313 venues in 2015. The annual festival, which takes place over 3 weeks in August, has gone from strength to strength and, in its 69th year, remains a space for innovative performance work you can’t see anywhere else.

In just over an hour Head of Operations Lyndsey Jackson will walk (or run) us through how they manage or at least try and cover many of the aspects covered in the previous 23 sessions at Ticketing Professionals 2016, everything from search engine optimization, data protection, system resilience and staff communications.

This session promises to be a fitting closing key note for the first ever Ticketing Professionals Conference.
