Networking & New Product Demos


Alongside the international conference programme, TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit incorporates a virtual mini-exhibition of specially-selected suppliers – which we call ‘The Marketplace’.

The Marketplace is dedicated to all the latest innovations and solutions to the stadium design and delivery challenges. Each year we invite 25-30 specialist suppliers to showcase what they can do to help your project’s success.

Featuring product demonstrations, lots of interaction and open debate, The Marketplace really is the place to grow your business!

If you are interested in showcasing your product or service offering, then get in touch.
