Basically, the conference will be a perfect blend of regional and international program topics facing the challenges of our times and will help the sports venue veterans to learn from each other’s experiences.

Some of the topics to be discussed are – Venue DESTINATION, Venue DESIGN, Venue BUSINESS, Venue TECHNOLOGY, Venue EDUCATION & GREEN Venue, Venue OPERATIONS, and Venue SECURITY, HEALTH & SAFETY.

Top-notch delegates from around 121 organizations will take part in the online conclave.

The last date for registration is February 11th, 8:29 am, Abu Dhabi Time.

‘Coliseum’ is keeping its fingers crossed and hopes to be back with the in-person version of the MENA summit in 2022.
