It’s all about delivery – from breaking ground, to fan experience and tournament legacy
Year-in and year-out, after hosting leaders in the stadia and sports industry from across the world, the 8th instalment of the World Stadium Congress will be all about delivery as we see Qatar switch in to high gear for the delivery requirements for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Join these stakeholders and discuss pre-event, on the day and post-event delivery requirements – from construction, to fan experience, to legacy and beyond at the event.
The 2016 edition hosted over 400 attendees and a resounding 40 sponsors and exhibitors to showcase the latest innovations in stadium construction, event security and venue technology. 2017 will be no different as we host local organising committees, stadium owners and operators, major sporting federations, renowned sport architects and consultants as well as reputable contractors to discuss the next generation of stadia and arena.
