Mastering Events Podcast Episode #3: Dale Ballentine (Eventim)

He is a two-decade plus veteran of the ticketing world, having also worked with Ticketmaster, Live Nation and Motorsport Tickets.

As part of his role at Eventim, he’s managed the ticketing operations for the London, Rio and now Paris Olympics. And to think, it all started with a job in the box office at his local cinema in Durham in the UK.

We talk about it all in this interview, from Dale's path into events and his encounter with Nelson and Winnie Mandela, to the logistics of overseeing the ticketing for the Olympics and his thoughts on the future of venue access.
