A Message From The President
Welcome to the Ontario Professional Ticketing Association (OPTA) website.
It is my pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the Ontario Professional Ticketing Association Membership and Executive Board.
2014/2015 marks an important time in our history as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of OPTA at our general meeting in April 2015. Established in 1990 and with 115 members, OPTA is the oldest and largest regional ticketing group in North America. Together, we represent over 79 organizations from across the province. Our membership is varied, representing organizations with different focuses, including: theatres, performance venues, attractions and ticketing service providers.
Members include: box office managers, patron services directors, marketing and sales directors, and venue IT professionals, to name only a few. We are happy to count a number of industry supplier members among our ranks as well.
As an OPTA member, you will benefit from insider access to box office operations and best practices from arts, museums, attractions, sports and theatre environments to name a few.
Networking - Our group holds five general meetings during the OPTA season (September through June) hosted at various venues throughout Toronto, which provides additional value for your membership. OPTA members understand your business so bring your ideas or challenges to the meet and greet prior to each meeting and you will certainly get ideas that will put you on track.
Continuing Education – OPTA will endeavor to provide you with the highest quality professional development at the lowest price anywhere. We will keep you informed about breaking industry news and views, industry benefits, and career opportunities.
