About Sports Venue Business (SVB) & its Founder

Sports Venue Business (SVB) is the brainchild of Founder & CEO Katie McIntyre; a name previously synonymous with PanStadia / PanStadia & Arena Management, as she spent 1997-2016 steering and then maintaining the magazine to the No.1 spot.


McIntyre joined PanStadia in November 1997 and under her leadership it became the leading publication for the sector. The title was acquired by Alad Ltd in 2013 and merged with Stadium & Arena Management to create PanStadia & Arena Management, on which McIntyre was Publication Director and Editor. She was also Head of Audience Development and a Panel Moderator on the company’s Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific event.


Having spent the last two decades working in and reporting on developments within the sports venues sector, McIntyre boasts a huge network of over 7,800+ high ranking industry professionals from clubs, stadia, arenas, leagues, federations, sports venues, mega sporting events, architecture, design and engineering firms, producers and suppliers, and more from around the globe.


Realising there was a gap in the market, McIntyre launched Sports Venue Business – which is already recognised as the leading platform for disseminating industry news, views and information on a global scale – in September 2016.
