The ESSMA Summit is the must-attend stadium industry event by ESSMA (European Stadium & Safety Management Association) in partnership with the EPFL (European Professional Football Leagues), ECA (European Club Association) and the ICSS (International Centre for Sport Security). 

Get an impression of ESSMA’s successful 2016. We enjoyed a great Summit in Bilbao, an inspiring small & medium sized stadium tour to Switzerland, Austria and Hungary and our second USA Fan Experience Tour took us to the West Coast, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. 

The Fan Entertainment Workshop took place in Valencia CF’s Mestalla Stadium 22nd and 23rd November 2016. There were interventions from Valencia CF, LaLiga and the AFEPE (National Association of Football Fans) on day 1 and Stoke City FC and Juventus FC on Day 2. This workshop offered a behind-the-scenes tour, guided by Valencia CF staff. 

Last month, Stadium Partner Philips Lighting, announced VfL Wolfsburg as the first German club to adopt its connected LED pitch lighting. Take a look at this video below what this means. 

The Pitch Management Workshop took place in Paris 30th and 31st August. Both the Clairefontaine National Training Centre and the Stade de France were hosts of this workshop. Read our full report here
