I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of our advertisers, contributors and readers a very happy New Year and say that myself and all the team look forward to bringing you all of the latest news on stadia, arena, sporting events and venue projects throughout 2015.
This year is another exciting one both for the sports venue sector that we serve, as well as for ourselves, with a host of stadium and arena projects due to open their doors, and others to commence. We are also very excited to be launching PanStadia & Arena Management magazine’s App and Enhanced Facility Watch, which will provide you with even more vital information on all of the latest sports venue developments and tender news from around the globe. (NB: You can view the 2015 Media Kit online at www.psam.uk.com which details all of the stadia and arena projects to be featured in 2015, as well as the specific industry sectors/topics to be featured in each edition.)
Our forthcoming Q1/Spring ’15 edition will also be a historic issue, as it will include the inaugural ‘Playing Surfaces Buyers Guide’; our independent guide to the leading companies involved in all aspects of natural, hybrid and artificial turf playing surface design, engineering, installation and maintenance, which we are producing in association with ESTO.
We are compiling this Guide to especially benefit our readers in emerging and developing countries by presenting them with a definitive guide as to the leading companies that they should be speaking to in terms of their playing surfaces needs. The directory will also include some independently commissioned articles covering all aspects of the industry based on feedback from our readers over recent years. It will take the same format as our hugely successful Architects, Engineers & Specialist Contractors (AEC) Directory that was included in our Spring ’14 edition and which remains online at: http://flickread.com/edition/html/index.php?pdf=544100a7e845a&w=1000&h=1414&p=51 with regular additions and updates.
In addition, this September will see the second edition of our ‘live’ event, the Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific conference and exhibition. We welcomed 500+ top-ranking attendees to last year’s inaugural event and we are expecting even more to attend this year’s event, once again being held at the Singapore Sports Hub from September 28-30, 2015. Exhibition space is selling out fast and we are now accepting speaker requests and asking you to advise as to the topics you would like to see covered during this world-leading event.
If you have any news you would like to share either about a sports venue development, whether it be a new build or revamp, an innovative product, service or solution, then please contact myself, Katie McIntyre, either via email at: email@example.com or contact me in the Irish office on Tel: +353 (0) 44 9335212.
In regards to speaker opportunities and possible topics for discussion at our Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific event, please contact either myself or Sam Wibrew via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For all the latest information both on the magazine and the show, please ensure to regular check out www.psam.uk.com (where you will find digital editions of the latest issue, as well as back-issues) and www.saevents.uk.com
On behalf of all the team, we look forward to working with you through 2015 and here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 12 months!
Best wishes and thank you for your continued support!
