Director, Civil Engineering (UK) – Intelligent Engineering
The conference not only permitted our delegates to meet key industry stakeholders but also to gain insight into the entire spectrum of stadium activities. As an exhibitor, we were likewise impressed with the level of interest we received from the conference attendees. We have already signed up for the event next year.
Head of Wind Engineering - BMT Fluid Mechanics Ltd
We found the event incredibly well organised, with the balance between the exhibitors’ space and the speaking slots just right. Also, the organisers were incredibly helpful in connecting us with new potential clients. What did we get out the conference? Simple: new contacts and new prospects. We had a fantastic amount of interest in our services from a broad spectrum of attendees, especially architects from around the region keen to work with us on their future sports venue projects.
CEO, Melbourne & Olympic Parks
Last year’s conference was a really valuable experience for venue management professionals and I’m thrilled to be attending once again this year. I’ll be speaking on the current challenges involved in building emerging rugby and football clubs in the Melbourne sporting market – an environment that’s traditionally dominated by Australian Rules Football. I’ll also be discussing fan engagement and the role of the venue operator in this space.
PMC Design Manager, CH2MHill
Thank you for organising such a well-run and interesting event.
Business Operations Manager, DAS Audio
A great way to get to know designers and operators, as well as engineering companies, with whom we collaborate and work.
Senior Director, Integrated Security Consultants (ISC)
Firstly, congratulations on your inaugural event here in Singapore. It was an interesting few days and great to see so many international delegates here – and only yards from our new office! I thought it really proved how there is a healthy thirst to discuss and explore opportunities in Asia, so I’m delighted you are returning next year. Thank you for the very kind invitation to join the panel, and share some of our experience with your delegates. There are lessons to be shared when you step off a plane and set up to trade overseas – and particular lessons to be learnt in Asia.
Facilities Manager, Hong Kong Rugby Union
The event was fabulous. It served as a platform for industry practitioners to exchange and share innovative ideas, new projects, trends around the globe, and more importantly meet people who work in the same industry around Asia Pacific face-to-face. I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the organiser; everything was well organised. The event truly exceeds my expectation and I look forward to attending Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific again in 2016!
