Ticketmaster CEO says ticketing companies have role in event security
April 18, 2013 05:17 PM
"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."
