Coliseum Summit 2016 global schedule

The MJR Group has announced the schedule for its 2016 Coliseum Summits – the global brand in the field of stadium and venue business conferences. Continuing with its tradition of hosting four Coliseum Summits in four continents annually, the next year’s events are lined up as follows:

 
Coliseum Summit EUROPE (Feb 23-24, 2016 )
Venue: Amsterdam ArenA, The Netherlands

Having hosted international stadium conferences across four continents, Coliseum will host its first event in Amsterdam, the Netherlands next year. Europe is one of the most competitive and mature sports and stadium destinations in the world and the event will include special venue tours for the participants.

“We are very happy finally to reach the European market with our first event in Amsterdam. Coliseum Summit EUROPE will be geared to meet the existing challenges and open up new frontiers in the continent’s stadium business sector,” said Michael Rennschmied, the CEO of MJR Group.

 
Coliseum Summit AMERICAS (Mar 29-30, 2016)
Venue: Las Vegas, United States

Having entered the sophisticated American stadium market with its first extremely successful event in Orlando, Florida, US in 2015, Coliseum has chosen Las Vegas as its choice for the next Coliseum Summit AMERICAS.

“Las Vegas is abuzz with activity on the stadium venues front. With the city breaking new grounds, quite literally, on a range of projects with an estimated value of over $2 billion, the flourishing stadium market of Las Vegas became a natural choice for our second summit in the Americas,” Rennschmied said.

 
Coliseum Summit ASIA (Sept 27-28, 2016)
Venue: Beijing, China

China is emerging as one of the most promising stadium venues markets, not only in Asia, but in the world. Having hosted the summer Olympics in 2008 (Beijing) and Asian Games in 2010 (Guanzhou), China has already bagged the rights to host the winter Olympics (Beijing) and Asian Games (Hangzhou) both in 2022.

“With a series of big ticket sporting events lined up in China, the sports stadium business is poised to witness a huge explosion. We are proud to state that with Colisum Summit, we become the first stadium conference hosting such an event in China,” stressed Rennschmied.

 
Coliseum Summit MENA (Nov 1-2, 2016)
Venue: Doha, Qatar

The stadium business sector in the Middle East, and particularly the Gulf region, is abuzz with plans for new stadiums and a series of events lined up leading to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Doha, Qatar. Coliseum has already hosted four events in Doha with a focus on the World Cup and associated projects. Al Ain, UAE was chosen as the venue for the fifth Coliseum Summit MENA.

“The sixth edition of the summit will see us return to Doha once again. However the event will have a larger canvas focusing on the stadium projects around the region. Besides the 8 stadiums Qatar is building for the World Cup, Saudi Arabia is working on 11 new stadium projects, Oman on two stadiums and one each in the UAE and Kuwait,” Rennschmied emphasized.

Besides, neighboring Jordan will be hosting the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and UAE is scheduled to hos 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
