Bringing together Asia's entertainment & eCommerce ecosystems

The Wave, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong 17-18 October 2023

Experiences. Entertainment. eCommerce!

Building on the success of its first special edition for Asia, TheTicketingBusiness team returns to Hong Kong in 2023 for our second edition.

We’re adding more speakers, more stages and more friends from across the Asia-Pacific region – to create the essential entertainment eCommerce business meeting for the huge, fast-growing (but fragmented) APAC entertainment market. We’ll explore what’s happening across sales, marketing and engagement tech for arts, culture, sports, live music, theme parks and visitor attractions.

And – for the first time – TheTicketingBusiness ASIA #TAS23 will take place ahead of TheStadiumBusiness ASIA (19-20 Oct) in the same week – bringing in venue leaders across entertainment, sports & leisure.

This is an invite-only meeting. Please complete the form below for accreditation/registration process.

    About #TAS23

    Welcome both to Hong Kong and to our second gathering for the Asia-Pacific market.

    Over the past decade – with an amazing set of partners, supporters and friends – we’ve built our European edition into the #1 ticketing biz meeting on the planet. Now we want to do the same for this mighty region.

    If you run a venue, fill spaces, create experiences or need audiences for your living, then TheTicketingBusiness ASIA is for you. We bring together event creators and promoters, with the marketing agencies and distribution channels – alongside the supporting cast of tech and service enablers.

    In short, everyone who can help generate audiences, drive event revenue and enhance the experience from ticket discovery and distribution, through data and analytics, to pricing and packaging.
