NBA All-Star 2020: Why tickets for All-Star Tech Summit are more expensive than the All-Star Game?

In an interview with USA Today, Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive said, “The NBA All-Star 2020 technical summit is one of the most important technology summits in the world. At most tech summits, you see one kind of person from the technology world. Here, you have entertainers, you have athletes, you have business people, you have technologists. It’s all about bringing (the) right people together, and this summit does just that.” 

The tech summit is an invite-only event and entry is limited to about 500 people. Attendees must check in to receive their credentials. Extra passes are unavailable. A ticket on the secondary market is totally out of the question.
