ESSMA announces Stadium Management Workshop

The European Stadium & Safety Managers Association (ESSMA), has confirmed that it will be running a two-day workshop giving insights into different stadium-related topics, such as: daily stadium operations, engineering, ticketing, hospitality, accessibility, mobility, sustainability and CSR.

The Workshop will be held at Arsenal Football Club’s world-class Emirates Stadium, from May 31 to June 1, and will include speakers from clubs and institutions including: Arsenal FC, CAFE (Centre for Access to Football in Europe), Tottenham Hotspur FC, Forest Green Rovers FC and many more.

Presentations will be combined with Q&A (questions & answers) sessions, as well as an extended ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of Emirates Stadium guided by members of the venue’s operations staff, all enhanced by plenty of networking possibilities with stadium industry peers.

To stimulate interaction between the speakers and participants, and to ensure involvement in the discussion, the number of attendees is limited to a maximum of 50.
