Design. Operations. Technology.

TheStadiumBusiness team heads to Hong Kong for our much-anticipated regional meeting to bring together the owners and operators of stadiums, arenas and entertainment venues across Asia’s diverse, fast-growing market.

Combining the best of our two, established European summits, we are building the region’s essential gathering point for all those involved in the design, operation, fit-out, operations and programming of large-scale sports and entertainment facilities in the region.
