An international audience of delegates spanning more than 30 countries across five continents congregated at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester earlier this week to strike new connections, meet old friends and unpick the biggest topics at the heart of the stadium sector.

The two-day conference programme for the 15th edition of TheStadiumBusiness Summit began in earnest on Tuesday after delegates were treated to a fascinating site tour of the nearby Etihad Stadium and AO Arena – two of Manchester’s state-of-the-art sports and entertainment facilities.

When the conference got underway, connectivity at the heart of an increasingly tech-driven fan experience, reimagining underutilised spaces, and creative solutions to convert stadiums into 365-day-per-year venues were among the key themes to be highlighted.
