Our Industry Drop-in event is back!
On Thursday 16th November, we’ll take over Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design (BAaD) for a day of 1-2-1’s, industry panels and networking.
We’re bringing some esteemed guests with us, too. We’ll go into more detail further down the article, but the likes of Fraz.ier, Mike Grieve and more will be in attendance.
The Glasgow event follows our last drop-in event in Birmingham, with both events focused on putting our motto of being ‘More Than A Ticket Shop’ into action. We’re passionate about events and the culture behind them, so we want to help promoters and industry staff learn from the best out there.

Debate the hot topics of the Scottish music industry in our roundtable discussions

We’ve got three discussions lined up, with each one running at the same time. So, when you’re buying tickets, please only book a ticket for one table.
