StubHub Hosts State Legislators at Headquarters

Recently TechNet held their annual summit in San Francisco, gathering state legislators from around the country to convene and discuss policy issues that concern the tech industry. We invited a group of legislators and staff to take a tour of the StubHub headquarters in San Francisco in conjunction with the summit, which included Rep. Gary VanDeaver (R-TX), Sen. Joe Fain (R-WA), and Rep. Mike Fortner (R-IL).

This event gave us the opportunity to discuss ticket industry challenges and state efforts to protect consumers in the following matters: 

  • Fans should have the right to buy, resell, or give away tickets on the platforms or exchanges of their choice
  • Fans should not be penalized for choosing to buy, resell, or give away tickets on the exchange of their choice
  • Competition in the ticket market drives innovation, lowers prices, and improves the fan experience 

We would like to thank all of our guests for visiting StubHub headquarters. We look forward to continuing the dialogue on these important policy issues in 2018.
