Ticketmaster CEO says ticketing companies have role in event security

"What happened on Monday reminds that ticketing is about revenue, and it's about relationships, and it's also about security,” Hubbard said during a featured interview at the 2013 Ticketing Symposium. “I came from Australia a week ago, where the head of the Australian Open was showing me the 300 closed-circuit cameras that they have, that allow them to look under seats, and talking to him specifically about a solution that would help him make sure that they know everybody coming through the venue. That is a hot issue that we as an industry need to not lose sight of at the moment. There's a role that a ticketing platform -- whether it's us or any -- should, and had better, play. That's part of why data is so important."
