What is Ticketing Professionals, who is it aimed at and why do you need to be there? 

Ticketing Professionals was founded in 2015 and the first Conference took place on 25-26 February 2016 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, UK.


This inaugural event brought together almost 300 delegates for twenty four sessions over two days of professional development, personal growth and peer networking and is aimed at anyone directly or indirectly involved in ticketing the arts, sports, arenas and festivals, ticket agents, entertainment management and marketing.

The ICC in Birmingham was the venue for the first TPC


The event was THE place to see new technologies, learn, network, socialise and develop through a packed programme of keynote presentations and multi-stream educational content, alongside an exhibition and marketplace of ticketing products and services, delivered by innovative industry suppliers.

The Ticketing Professionals Conference remains a great opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and to learn alongside others in similar roles.

Our programmes are designed to provide a forum to support you and ensure the success of your organisation by discovering and sharing new ideas, through both presentations and round-table interaction and discussion covering all areas of the industry, including technology.

Year on year TPC attracts the top suppliers to exhibit new products and services


Fast-paced technology innovations and changing leisure behaviours in a tough economic climate have affected many organisations. Ticketing professionals are constantly challenged to generate more revenue by developing successful new sales techniques and pricing strategies whilst striving to minimise operational costs by driving customers to engage with new technology to book tickets.


We encourage potential delegates to take part in a conference that aims to motivate professionals to implement new ideas and make improvements once they return to work.
