The Summit

Coliseum is a conference, a publication and an online-platform dedicated to design, delivery, operations and legacy of stadia and arenas globally.

The summits consist of exclusive presentations, case studies, interactive panel discussions, venue tours, a networking & exhibition area and an evening get together.

The events are dedicated to the various challenges and solutions; and the lessons which can be learnt relating to the sports venue sector around the world.

Coliseum is the only conference with a global presence in the key markets of the stadium and arena business: Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.

Coliseum believes in and encourages the idea of ‘one venue, one room’. The exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge under one roof between the experts and stakeholders create an opportunity of understanding of each others’ challenges, eventually leading to a better venue at the end. This is the reason why we do not have ‘break up’ sessions in our conferences.

We bring to the fore the key figures and personalities in the industries, together with their projects and ask key questions. We strongly believe people should always be challenged in looking across their own borders. This is the reason why we unite owners, stakeholders, investors, architects, consultants, contractors, operators, suppliers and fans under one roof – within the Coliseum Summit.

Coliseum Summits are structured in the following main sections: Venue TECHNOLOGY, Venue OPERATIONS, Venue SECURITY, GREEN Venue, Venue VIP, Venue EXPERIENCE, Venue DESIGN, Venue CONSTRUCTION, Venue BUSINESS, AUDIOVISUAL Solutions, BRAND Development, Venue DESTINATION and Venue EDUCATION.

Coliseum visits different countries on different continents. Each region requires an individual special tailored conference programme. But we strongly believe all the experts and stakeholders – from the first stadium design idea to the strategies of increasing revenue streams – should be united under one roof and discuss topics like:

  • What will be the real legacy of sports stadia/arenas?
  • How can the sport venue be integrated in the surrounding environment?
  • What is the current planning status of sports venues and bid plans?
  • Building standards and codes: real sense or buzzwords?
  • What is the right ticketing concept for the venue?
  • Should a venue/club create and maintain its own customer/fan database?
  • Should cities build expensive landmark stadia, more reasonable design and build venues or just modular stadia?
  • Renovate or build new?
  • How can revenue streams be increased and how can more events be held on non-match days?
  • What do the fans want? Current research results and trends.
  • How to finance a stadium?
  • How to upgrade the venue to a smart one (IT & AV)?
  • Are ‘green and sustainable’ stadia close to reality or fictions?
  • Information from the local, regional and international decision makers about their plans and concepts.
  • Information about the newest trends of building materials and technologies.
  • How a professional security concept can be effectively implemented?
  • Current outlook and preparations from the current host cities…

… and many more relevant and interesting topics.
