Transport Ticketing Global once again showcased how the concept of ticketing is set to change over the decades to come. Peter Jackson caught a glimpse into the future of the sector

The turn of the decade coincided with a landmark change for Transport Ticketing Global, with 2020’s event moving from its established home at Old Billingsgate to the much larger Olympia venue in the capital’s West Kensington region. Despite the increase in size, the conference looked every bit as full and busy as last year’s, an observation backed up by Stuart Barker, Portfolio Director at organiser Clarion Events.

Introducing this year’s conference, he told the audience: “Eight years ago, when I started working for Clarion, we were in a smallish hotel in Kensington. It shows you just how far we’ve come since that we’ve been able to move into our new home at Olympia – it’s great to see the show going from strength to strength. At last count there’s been 25% more registrations this year, and people from more countries than ever before – 73 so far.”
