Talking Technology 2020

Talking Technology
a tentative exploration of common standards in ticketing technology

Monday 16th March 2020 2.00pm-4.00pm   To be rescheduled for a date later in 2020
Delfont Room, Prince of Wales Theatre, Coventry Street, London, W1D 6AS

Ticketing technology is constantly developing, particularly in efforts to improve access control and through digital tickets that can help address issues of security, counterfeiting, fraud and unauthorised transfer.

This meeting aims to bring together those with the best technical brains in ticketing to discuss what opportunities there might be for common standards between systems, particularly to help improve customer experience, defend against fraud, control the transfer of tickets and, where possible, to encourage co-operation through common technical standards between ticketing platforms.

This is a unique opportunity for ticketing technology experts to come together in conversation; to pool their frustrations, ambitions, disappointments and hopes for how the industry might be able to work together better…or not.

This is a closed-door meeting for invited attendees only. We understand and are sensitive to the fact that there will be limits to what can and can’t be discussed. Part of the purpose of this meeting is to have a better understanding of those limits, but also to identify those areas where better co-ordination and co-operation are possible.

We very much hope you will want to participate. Each company attending should aim to bring along two people – one with a good technical understanding of the relevant ticketing systems and another who is knowledgeable about the practical mechanics of ticketing and relationships with other ticketing companies, venues and event organisers.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the meeting further, please contact Jonathan Brown.
