Ticket Zone recently joined The Association of Festival Organisers (AFO).
We attended this years' conference, as part of our ongoing marketing programme to both promote Ticket Zone services. We also wanted to meet like-minded festival and event managers who believe in learning and teaching, sharing and networking to continuously improve the festival scene.
