There are just 7 weeks to go until we will be on site with the stadium industry’s finest at TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2016. It’s also only 7 weeks until we get to snoop around behind the scenes at some of the UK’s most exciting stadium projects – particularly our host venue, Emirates Old Trafford.

We’re delighted to have partnered with resident club Lancashire County Cricket Club for the Summit this year – Chief Exec, Daniel Gidney, has been part of TheStadiumBusiness family for 10 years now and knows exactly what makes for a great Summit.

This means that our registered delegates are being treated to a private hard hat tour of LCCC’s most exciting recent development – the addition of a new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel at their home ground.

We previewed LCCC’s new partnership with Hilton last week, along with the club’s own redevelopment of The Point, which will be ready just in time for our arrival in October.

Daniel tweeted yesterday a very impressive image of the construction with the quote:

‘The new @HiltonGardenInn is flying up here @EmiratesOT. Our new 150-bed hotel will be ready next summer!”


On top of an exclusive tour of EOT, our delegates will take part in tours of Anfield’s stunning new grandstand, Everton’s new makeover, Etihad’s vast new campus and stadium, attend two dedicated networking receptions (including our ‘Night of the Living Dead’ party), see 40 world-class speakers and meet 60+ global stadium projects.

Now all we have to do is make sure that it all fits into just three days.

Our Earlybird offer (with 2 free hotel nights) ends this Friday. If haven’t registered yet, you can reserve your place here.
