“We are delighted to welcome Phil to the TTF Advisory Panel,” comments John Pinchbeck, Founder, TicketingConsultancy.com, and Chair of the Advisory Panel.
“We are keen to explore the similarities and differences across all live (i.e. non home-based) entertainment sectors. Whilst there are some shared practices and even systems/suppliers across the Performing Arts, Sport and Visitor Attraction sectors, Cinema has tended to operate in isolation.”
“But Cinema has lead the way in developing National portals and Mobile ticketing, and its work in Social ticketing is also of great interest to the rest of the industry.”
“Phil is the ideal representative of the Cinema sector having forged a long and varied career at the cutting edge of technology and service provision for some of the key Cinema industry players. We look forward to learning from Phil and to sharing our knowledge with him in return.”
Ticketing Technology Forum 2013 explores, debates and showcases the latest trends, innovations and technologies that will deliver the next generation of live entertainment ticketing solutions.
