Guide To Tackle Online Touts + Statement From MP Nigel Adams
This week the FanFair Alliance and the Music Managers Forum (MMF) published a new guide for managers to help ‘beat the ticket touts’, a resource that aims to help minimise touting and the resale of tickets on secondary sites at inflated prices. MP Nigel Adams also released a statement against online ticket touts. “Through meetings with industry experts and fans in my capacity as chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Music, I have come to understand the scale of the problem which is ripping off fans and powering a multi-million pound industry – with many individual touts registering as limited companies. Being a keen music fan, I want to see comprehensive reform of the secondary ticket resale market to put fans first and to ensure live music and other events are affordable for a wide audience.” You can read his full statement here and you can download the MMF & FanFair Alliance guide here.
