Pittsburgh is the site for the 14th annual Veritix Sports Facilities & Franchises conference and 4th annual Ticketing Symposium. The three-day program will lead off with the Ticketing Symposium on Tuesday, June 10. Once again this year, the Ticketing Symposium will closely examine the hottest topics in the industry and provide insights and key learnings on maximizing ticket revenue.
Beginning on Wednesday, June 11, the Sports Facilities & Franchises conference will bring together those charged with managing venue and team operations. Through a series of roundtable discussions, in-depth interviews and case studies, the conference will address venue sponsorship opportunities, ROI, fan engagement, emerging venue technologies, plus a host of other franchise and facility management topics.
Both events are designed for team presidents, CEOs and other C-Level executives (CFO, COO, CIO, CMO), as well as VPs of key functional areas: facility operations and management, ticketing, premium seating, corporate sales and marketing.
