The speakers will share their unique case studies and experiences to throw light on the myriad of challenges faced by the sports venue sector and also deliberate upon the possible solutions.

Over 205 venue specialists have already registered to participate at the summit so far. “This is the biggest attendance for the European edition of Coliseum so far. The delegates as well as speakers are from very well known clubs and venues and represent a range of new and under-renovation stadium projects,” Rennschmied said.

Coliseum Summit offers a unique platform for experts from the stadium and sports venue business to come under a single roof to discuss the future of the sector. The conference is formatted to highlight 11 different segments of the stadium business, namely: Venue DESIGN, Venue CONSTRUCTION, Venue BUSINESS, Venue TECHNOLOGY, Venue EDUCATION, GREEN Venue, Venue OPERATIONS, Venue SECURITY, Venue VIP, Venue EXPERIENCE and DESTINATION Venue.

Beginning this summit in London, the conference has added two additional but crucial segments of BROADCAST Strategy and BRAND Development.

No other conference has such a variety of topics covered,” Rennschmied said.

The sessions at Coliseum Summit EUROPE would highlight experiences and stadium projects in the continent as well as from other regions of the world.

Participating delegates will also get unique ‘behind the scene’ experiences through two venue tours that would include the famous Wimbledon Stadium on March 20, a day ahead of the start of the summit; and also London Stadium, which was the home stadium for Summer Olympics 2012, on March 21.

It is the only global sports venues business summit with 5 dedicated stadium and arena conferences every year in 5 key regions in the world: Europe, US, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Latam.
