For our sixth edition of TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit, we welcome back to the stage Principal of MANICA Architecture, David Manica.

David believes in stunning design and innovative functionality as the path to successful buildings. In his 24 years designing large public assembly facilities, David has forged a vision for some of the world’s highest-profile stadium, arena and convention projects totaling over $10bn in construction.

His comprehensive experience spans all phases of project development. He values a collaborative approach to design that successfully solves all of his clients’ needs related to aesthetics, program, budget, function and schedule. David’s passionate commitment and dedication to balancing the complicated needs of his clients have earned him lasting relationships with them all.

In Barcelona, David will give his insights into creative thinking in enhanced revenue generation.

In our session – Premium Directions : Postcards From The Upper Limits – David will highlight some of the most current and innovative premium seating and amenity options. Drawing on examples from both stadiums and arenas, it is evident that creativity and a sense of fun are key drivers behind the latest “value added” amenities for the premium patron. Emerging concepts capture more revenue both from within the bowl and away from the field of play.
