WTC Delay
Due to the severe impact of COVID-19 on our members, attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and the live entertainment industry as a whole, the decision has been made to delay the World Ticket Conference (previously scheduled for July 16-18). 

We know that attending this event is a substantial commitment, one that seems much larger now amidst the current landscape. We do not want to ask you to put further strain on your resources for the purposes of travel, nor would we ask that you put your health, or the health of your employees and families, at risk. 

We take great pride in being able to put this event on for you and have no doubt that we will be able to come back stronger than ever. As we all will. Together.

My deepest gratitude to Gary Adler for his skilled negotiation of these matters, as well as to Terry Stevenson, the WTC Committee, and the NATB Board of Directors for all the work they have been doing behind the scenes in the last several weeks. 

We will keep you apprised of the situation as plans are made to hold WTC at a time when it can be safe and successful. While it has not yet been determined when that specific date will be, please be assured that you will be provided with proper advance notice.

I hope you all stay healthy, and I look forward to seeing you all again when we come back from this.
