With just under two weeks until the International Live Music Conference (ILMC), we look forward to The Arthur Awards ceremony which sees the best in the industry recognised. The Arthurs are to be handed out during ILMC’s Gala Dinner, which will take place Thursday, 2 March 2023. We are delighted to have one of our own nominated for ‘The Golden Ticket Award’, Ticketmaster’s SVP of Field Operations, Doug Smith.
