Excitement is mounting ahead of #TDS16 as we confirm more than €5.5bn worth of construction to be represented on site in Manchester/Liverpool (31 Oct-2 Nov).

With 36 projects represented so far (and many more to confirm later in the week), we are set for a record-breaking gathering of major sports venue projects when the doors open to the fifth annual Design & Development Summit this autumn.

Spanning across 13 countries (including Japan, Russia, The Netherlands and Italy), and featuring some the world’s most respected clubs, the project list grows daily and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome the delegations on site for 3 days of dedicated networking, expert tours and VIP speakers.

Our HQ Hotel has already completely sold out of rooms for the event, and our second hotel is filling up fast as delegates from around the world secure their place to meet with the industry’s finest.

Meet the Projects here

Who else will be there?

Meet the project teams all in one place, at one time on 31 Oct-2 Nov. Secure your place here (and have 2 free hotel nights on us).
