Kahn’s keynote address “Dynamically Changing the Landscape for Sports Ticketing,” is part of the Beacom School of Business’ “Economics Lecture Series,” and will focus on advances in the setting of ticket prices for sporting events. As CEO and founder of Qcue, Kahn provides guidance to professional sports teams, concert promoters and venue managers on how to optimize revenue while providing the best value to fans. Qcue’s software is designed to assist sports teams, venues, promoters and ticketing organizations to establish better up-front prices, and adjust to shifting demand, changes in market conditions and real-time sales data. Several major league baseball organizations use the software, which has the capability to adjust ticket prices when taking into account an opposing pitcher, an opponent’s record, weather, sales history and other factors. Qcue’s clients also include professional basketball, hockey, soccer teams and NASCAR.
In addition to being an economist and recognized thought leader in the ticketing industry, Kahn is a frequent speaker, author and media spokesperson. He received a Ph.D. and an M.S. in economics from the University of Texas, and a B.S. in applied engineering physics from Cornell University.
