New Dates: [Venues+Events] x [Ticketing+Tech]

Published on March 17, 2020

Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and the related restrictions on travel and business, we have rescheduled both TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2020 (previously scheduled for April) and TheTicketingBusiness Forum 2020 (previously scheduled for June) and June to late September) to be co-hosted together on 29-30 September at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.

In addition, the two related awards evenings – TheStadiumBusiness Awards 2020 and TheTicketingBusiness Awards 2020 – will be presented online on their original dates of 21 April and 9 June respectively.

Our industry is in turmoil. Never before have so many events been cancelled. So many venues closed. Such broad restrictions on travel put in place. And there is little end in sight.

With the fantastic support of our hosts at Lancs Cricket – and the kind understanding of our sponsors, speakers and delegates – we will, in effect, move the entire programmes for each event to the new dates.

By co-locating these two industry meetings, we will create the largest ever gathering of venues, events, ticketing and tech. This unique (and timely) platform will explore how best our sport and entertainment sector rebounds in the post-virus world.

A very different events landscape awaits us all on the other side but one universal truth prevails: nothing beats the live experience. Getting together as human beings to enjoy, admire and celebrate our heroes is programmed into the evolutionary DNA of all of us. After months of social isolation, the fans will need us more than ever once this has passed.

Any questions? Do get in touch.

Meanwhile, keep safe and well.

– Ian, Angelina, Lizzie & the Xperiology team
