The arts and ticketing sectors are rapidly growing, and industry conferences have become an important staple of the Spektrix calendar as they’re key to keeping up to date with new developments in the arts world. This year we’ve already hopped around the country with Spektrix swag in tow, making appearances at INTIX in Anaheim, Arts Reach in New York and NAMT in Dallas, but things are only just kicking off. Here are some of the places that you’ll be able to find the Spektrix team in the next few months. If you see a flash of Spektrix green (it’s not too hard to miss...) come and say hi - we would love to meet you!
