Panel Discussion: Ticket Sales Act. 

On the panel will be three people well-versed in the formulation of the act having been involved in the government liaison process, it’s current state and current proposals to amend the act.

  • Erin Benjamin – Canadian Music Live
  • Jesse Kumagai – Massey Hall/Roy Thomson Hall
  • Kelly Meehan – Ticketmaster

  

The Ticket Sales Act was created in 2017, and there are some 2019 proposed amendments that have not gone through yet. Many people I have spoken to feel this act has missed the mark and the proposed changes may do more harm than good. This is a vitally important issue to all of us, and I encourage you all to attend the meeting for a discussion that will that will look at how the Ticket Sales Act was formulated, where it currently stands and what you and your organization can do to be part of the conversation.
