Mitch Forster

Director, Sales,
Tixr Canada

Before landing in the ticketing world, Mitch Forster wore a variety of hats in the live events space. From stage hand, site ops, production assistant, artist transportation, and stage managing for CMW itself, he brings a world of experience to the ticketing space.

His array of experience working with events, paired with his technical background, landed him at Ticketmaster, where he spent time working with some of Canada’s largest event organizations such as MLSE, Caesars Windsor, Core Entertainment, Fallsview Casino, and more.

At Eventbrite he spearheaded sales for Canadian music clients, working with some of the largest independent promoters across the country. His clients included MRG, Collective Concerts, Inertia Entertainment, Concert Works, Spectrasonic, and many others who he guided through their migration from Eventbrite to Ticketfly.

Now as a Sales Director for Tixr, Mitch brings his years of industry expertise to oversee the company’s growth into Canada. His full understanding of the ticketing and event landscape has allowed him to provide intelligent insight and advice to partners and work directly with event producers as they explore unique ideas as part of their reopening strategies.
