MusicTank to focus on ticketing

Business News Education & Events Live Business

MusicTank

As AEG enters the ticketing market, and the secondary ticketing debate continues, MusicTank will throw the focus on all things tickets with its final Think Tank event for 2012.

The event will include two panel debates, one looking at innovations in the primary ticketing market, and the other at the continued issues around resale services, both involving artists, managers and promoters, and ticketing experts. Aline Renet of French live industry body PRODISS will keynote the secondary ticketing session, while We Got Tickets founder Dave Newton will lead the innovation panel.

MusicTank Chair Keith Harris will moderate, and he told CMU regards the secondary ticketing element of the event: “Four years ago when MusicTank first took on this issue, the alarm bells were ringing, but the government and the industry hit snooze. Now it’s definitely time to wake up and get to work on solving this problem, before it’s too late”.

This will all take place in London on 5 Dec from 5.30pm-9pm. Info via this link.
