Less than a week before the stadium industry is together in Manchester and we’ve had an exciting addition to our world-class speaker line up all the way from the US.

We have a late (but great) new addition to the TDS16 Summit: Tanya Dreesen, VP Partnership Activation and Special Projects at the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings will be sharing insights into the stunning new billion dollar US Bank Stadium. And she’s also looking for ideas for the Vikings’ 200 acre Training Complex which is now under construction. Tanya shared some of the latest renders for the planned development so we can have a sneak peek of what to expect in Eagan.


Tanya joins a host of global leaders who will be sharing their insights, experiences and expertise during the 3 days. The full programme was released this week.

Meet Tanya and 350 other industry experts in Manchester. Reserve your palce here.
