Thomas Franke, VfL Wolfsburg head of infrastructure and organisation said of a previous event:

Everything was very well organised and I could get useful insights into many different venues, really helping to be able to improve several things in my home venue. I got so many useful insights into state-of-the-art venues, thanks a lot for that. It was perfect.

Birger Nass – DFL Bundesliga head of stadium & infrastructure added:

ESSMA brings value to the DFL Bundesliga because our clubs can take part in ESSMA events with major European stakeholders and we can share those experiences in Germany amongst all our members.
