We can now announce the outline speaker order for Ticketing Professionals Express on 12th July in Edinburgh.

The theme of the day is “Revenues – Making more and Spending Less”, so we have assembled speakers from suppliers and venues with great case studies or stories to tell on how venues continue to develop new income streams, whilst controlling, or reducing their expenditure.

Don’t worry through, these won’t be sales pitches from suppliers, they are providing their time and experience to share their knowledge, from around and beyond the arts industry.

If you have not yet registered, a few places remain. It’s free to attend, but we’d love to know you’re coming.
