Why is the Ticketing Professionals Conference so important for the industry?

If you follow Booking Protect on LinkedIn, you’ll have seen how much we’re looking forward to attending the Ticketing Professionals Conference at the end of this month (20th-22nd).

We can’t wait to see all our friends and colleagues from the ticketing industry, as well as meeting some new faces.

But, as fans of Booking Protect will also see, this conference isn’t our first rodeo. In fact, you could say that we’re serial conference showcasers.

And we’re often asked what it is about the Ticketing Professionals Conference, or the INTIX Conference, or the Audience View Conference that makes us so excited each year when they come around.

The answer is pretty simple; idea sharing.

The ticketing industry is one of the most varied sectors in the world of business. There are so many differing opinions and ways of doing things. The industry constantly pushes itself forward through friendly competition and challenging the norm.

If a member of the industry chose to work in silo, they’ get left behind. Knowledge sharing helps us all to progress.

We know that better than anyone. The whole idea of Booking Protect was devised from listening to the ticketing world and realising there was a real need for a top quality refund protection provider. And we continue to lead the way in refund protection to this day, by taking on board the wants, hopes and fears of our industry partners, and adapting.

And in fact, the benefit we receive every time we attend a conference is the exact reason why we were so delighted to announce that our Business Development Director, Cat Spencer, has joined the INTIX board.

When we came home from the INTIX conference at the end of January, we weren’t patting ourselves on the back and congratulating ourselves for meeting lots and lots of new potential clients.

Instead, we were collecting our thoughts and analysing what we’d seen and taken in.

We even asked our friend, Dave Wakeman, to write a few blogs on the trends, ideas and people that had resonated most for him.

And we’re looking forward to writing some similar articles after we’ve attended the Ticketing Professionals Conference. The people will be different, the lessons will change but the positive benefit we’ll get from attending will be just as great.

Over the next couple of weeks, in the build up to the conference, we’ll take a look at what we’re looking forward to most from the TPC. That will include the thoughts of our CEO, Simon Mabb and our Business Development Manager, Cath Healy.

We’ll also release more information on how you can book time to see us in Birmingham.
