In the run-up to the ESSMA Safety Management Workshop that will be organised in Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park from 7 to 8 November, ESSMA interviewed two of the Borussia Dortmund hosts: Dr. Christian Hockenjos (Director of Organisation) and Kai Ruben (Security Manager). Both of them are profoundly involved in Borussia Dortmund’s match day operations and are the ideal experts to talk to when it comes to safety management at Germany’s largest football stadium.

The European Stadium and Safety Management Association (ESSMA) will assemble during the Safety Management Workshop. This event will take place in Dortmund (Germany) from 7 to 8 November at Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park.
