The Good Business Festival is a global summit for action taking place in multiple venues across Liverpool City Region on 7 - 9 July 2021. The festival is curated by Culture Liverpool and creative agency Hemingway Design, with a focus on uniting business, civil society and consumers in a collective effort to tackle the biggest challenges facing our world.
The first act of the Good Business Festival was held as a one-day online event in October 2020 launched by Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and featured influential thinkers from across business, tech, activism and economics including Ann Cairns, Mastercard, Timpson CEO James Timpson, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Cobra Beer Chairman and President of the CBI, Lord Karan Bilimoria, Patagonia's Director of Philosophy Vincent Stanley, Greenpeace Executive Director John Sauven, and Oscar-winning director and screenwriter Richard Curtis
The original plan was to deliver a physical festival in October 2020 but due to COVID-19, the team implemented mitigation plans, pivoting along the way as lockdowns were eased and re-implemented resulting in a successful digital event, viewed in 43 countries worldwide.
In July 2021, The Good Business Festival will return with high energy, taking over parts of the city centre for an event which is globally relevant and culturally essential.
This isn't a conference. This is an event for anyone working to make their business more successful in the new mainstream, where already informed consumers are demanding to know more about where their money is going. Our target audience is diverse - from CEOs and policymakers to students and fledgling start-ups. The atmosphere will be busy, exciting, vibrant - a real festival - with events taking place in interesting spaces across the city.
Ticketing Partner Requirements
The Good Business Festival invites companies to tender for the provision, and hosting, of a multi-purpose back-end ticketing system for approximately 6,000 visitors attending in July 2021. The quotation must be inclusive of the design and build, hosting and integration of said platform into the front-end system whilst providing varying scales of on-site visitor monitoring and restriction that can be dialled up or down at short notice, depending on covid contingencies and government guidelines.
