eos.uptrade at the 2nd Annual Ticketing Innovations Summit in Lisbon
From 15 to 16 June 2017, the 2nd Annual Ticketing Innovations Summit took place at the Pestana Palace in Lisbon. Experts from all over the world came together for this exchange of experience to discuss the latest trends in public transport and event ticketing.
The conference aimed at providing an exchange between different service providers from the area of public transport and event ticketing. Given that there are different prerequisites for issuing and inspecting tickets, the participants took part in lively discussions about the present opportunities and challenges in this regard as well as useful measures to prevent ticket fraud.
In his presentation, Michael Gross, Managing Director of eos.uptrade, focussed on connecting the ticketing systems of transport companies and event organisers to create combo tickets. He also took part in the panel discussion about the future of mobile ticketing, the general development in this area in light of smart devices and whether mobile end devices will substitute smart cards in the near future.
