Social and Networking Events

#TPC2022 is full of great chances to make new contacts and reconnect with others, in sessions or refreshment breaks.

Here are just some of the other great events that we have planned for 2022 delegates, included with your registration.

Resorts World Arena Tour 16/03 15:00-15:45 or 16:00 - 16:45

Come and take a backstage tour of one of the country’s leading arenas, Resorts World Arena at the NEC. This 16k capacity arena opened in 1980 which over the past 42 years has played host to the biggest names in music and leading sporting events. This summer it will be one of the host venues for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Situated opposite Resorts World (home of the Vox where the conference takes place) on the NEC campus this is a unique chance to take a look around this iconic venue.

There are two time slots available with each tour lasting 30-45 minutes. The tour is free, but places are limited so will be issued on a first come, first served basis so registration is a must.


Tessitura First-timers and VIP Reception - 16/03 19:00 - 20:00

Ticketing Professionals 2022 kicks off with an event aimed at first-time attendees to the conference. 

This is a great opportunity for those who have never been to the event to meet new, or perhaps existing contacts over a drink and to learn from others  how to get the most out of your first TPC event. 

A huge thank you to Tessitura Network for being our core sponsors for this valuable part of our programme.

Ticketmaster Welcome Back Party - 16/03 20:00 - 23:00

Once again, Ticketmaster have committed to hosting another great social event at TPC. 

This year’s opening reception is titled the ‘Welcome Back Party’ and will take place at the stylish high-line New York Lounge and Bar within the same Resort’s World complex as TPC.  

This event gives a first chance to reconnect with colleagues, or make new ones as we return to in person conferences. 

This event will have a complimentary bar, but pre-registration is essential as there is limited capacity.

Thursday Big Tix Bash 17/03 - 20:00 - Late

We are thrilled that Tix Ticketing has stepped up to be the headline sponsor of Thursday’s Big Ticketing Bash – or the ‘Big Tix Bash’.

This event will take place at Revolucion de Cuba in Birmingham City Centre, just a stone’s throw from New Street Station.

An evening of Cuban-inspired food and drink awaits, with some great music and dancing to boot.

Listening to previous feedback, the two floors allow you to have a ‘loud and lively’ or a ‘smoothed and chilled’ evening with your new and existing contacts.
