Former Ticketmaster CEO To Keynote Ticket Summit

LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The 2007 Ticket Summit Trade show is fast approaching, taking place at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, July 17-19, and could be quite the coup for the secondary ticketing industry.

Former President and CEO of the staunchly anti-resale-market ticketing company Ticketmaster, Fred Rosen, will be the keynote speaker, addressing issues that affect the industry in this modern, technology-crazed world. Rosen headed the ticketing giant from 1982 to 1998, creating the world’s leading computerized primary ticketing service, before the secondary market gained the online presence it holds today. Rosen will join the conference to discuss trends, legal issues, emerging markets, and several other factors related to the secondary ticket market.

The leading ticket industry conference and trade show, Ticket Summit features experts and leaders within the ticket community, including ticket brokers, ticket wholesalers, software vendors, venture capitalist firms, search engine marketing firms, concert and event promoters, agents and managers, to focus on issues pertaining to the secondary ticket market.

Additional speakers include representatives of, Theatermania, Goldstar Events, StubHub, EBay, Google, Control Scan, Advance ticket Systems, Tix4Tonight,, Venues Today, Association of Luxury Suit Director’s, Sports business Journal, Mirage, Venetian,, Hacker safe, and YOOnew.

Ticket Summit 2007 has also invited guests to the Tao Nightclub for its farewell gala to close the conference on July 19th with live entertainment, an open bar and fine gourmet food.
