It is with great regret that we have to inform you that we will not be running a pop-up at this years’ Arts Marketing Conference in Birmingham.
We had been working on a comprehensive program with some fantastic speakers, but were unable to find a venue that could provide affordable costs for our event, despite the superb support and sponsorship by Tessitura Network who were the sole sponsors of the event.
In previous years, we have been able to find a no or very low cost venue happy to host us, along , of course, with the customary drinks afterwards. Running the event as a free to attend session, we just could not find venues to host us without significant financial exposure, being so close to the conference we had to take the hard decision not to run an event for the first time in five years.
However, Roger and Andrew are working on an informal event to allow some one-to-one sessions with consultants as well as general networking for those interested in ticketing as part of the greater marketing puzzle. This will be in central Birmingham on the Tuesday afternoon before the conference.
Both Roger and Andrew, as well as the Ticketing Institute’s US partner, Ron Evans from Group of Minds will be running sessions at the main conference, so will be around for discussion and networking throughout the three days.
