We are delighted to be able to announce our first round of speakers for #TPC2016.
With over 25 sessions currently planned across the two days, we will be announcing the sessions the executive team have programmed slowly over the coming weeks.
The four learning tracks for 2016 are
Technology and Trends
Compliance and Regulation
Leadership and Management
In early October we will be calling for papers from the industry professionals, suppliers and other interested parties, so if you are wanting to have the chance to submit, make sure your subscription to TPC2016 has this preference. The easiest way to do this is by click the button at the bottom of this email and placing a tick in “interested in speaking” box.
So, let us introduce your first four speakers;
Barry will kick off the revenue learning track with practical steps for venues looking to launch or boost their group sales activities. From the importance of coach company relationships to the Women’s Institute Annual conference, this is be a session aimed at helping venue ‘learn and earn’ more from their group sales.
As part of both Technology and Compliance Tracks, Ben will brief on Cyber-security and how it does affect you! Recent ‘hacks’ like Sony and Ashley Madison will be explored, along with the three pillars of security and why they matter. He will argue that perhaps your greatest risk is not hacking but ignorance and how to you keep the lights on without busting the budget? Oh and what ever happened to PCI compliance?
No prizes for guessing this session sits in the revenue learning track! The main rule of commercially focused theme parks is to make money. Bill will walk his session through how technology is increasing opportunities for consumer spend, the impact of loyalty and how other venues could learn from this model and approach.
As a key theme in Leadership and Management learning track, Martin will highlight the steps needed and organisational benefit of making your ticketing operations and events in general “inclusive”. What does that mean in the modern era? The value of the “Purple Pound” and other key touch points on disability and inclusion will complete this session.
With up to 21 more sessions to be announced, including industry experts, leaders and new thinkers, Ticketing Professionals Conference 2016 will be the definitive UK forum for learning and development, we do hope to see you there.
