Guests at Event Tech Live will be able to enjoy a game of indoor golf at the venue and have their shots broadcast live.
The show-stopping activity forms part of a stand that will exhibit cutting-edge event industry entertainment and hybrid technology, in real time. Thanks to a collaboration between TicketCo Media Services and Junkyard Golf Club the course will be open for everyone to enjoy and each hole in one will be rewarded with free entry to one of the club’s UK venues.
The activity will be filmed and broadcast online by TicketCo Media Services to demonstrate how simple its technology makes delivering hybrid events for organisers. Members of the team will be on hand to talk guests through the technology while enjoying a bit of fun via Junkyard Golf Club.
“We are the world’s only genuine hybrid events platform and we’re looking forward to demonstrating it to visitors at Event Tech Live,” said TicketCo’s Vice President of Greenfield Sales, David Kenny.
“Having one of Junkyard Golf Club’s holes will add some fun to the event and provides us with something to film and broadcast to show the simplicity of our platform.”
Junkyard Golf Club was TicketCo’s founding client when it entered the UK market and the partnership has seen both companies flourish.
“We’re very happy to be teaming up with TicketCo for this fantastic event, we have a very unique and interactive stand that we can’t wait to show off at Event Tech live next month,” said Jacob Business Development Manager at Junkyard Golf Club.
“They have been our partner for over four years and deliver our event payment system across our six sites nationwide, they are at the very forefront of event payments. We are delighted that events like Event Tech Live have returned and we’re very excited to be collaborating on this event together.”

Adam Parry co-organiser of Event Technology Live said: “I am no pro golfer, in fact the only thing I seem to get a hole-in-one is one of my socks, but I will certainly be attempting to get one with TicketCo and Junkyard Golf Club at Event Technology Live.”

It has venues in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, London and Oxford and has just opened a new club in Newcastle.
