We’re witnessing a rise in the redevelopment and refurbishment of sports venues, with additions like Tunnel Clubs and dining experiences, as clubs/venues employ innovative design concepts and clever stratifications of their Premium Seat offerings to deliver significant returns.
As the Premium Seat sector continues its ascent, with many European clubs and venues now sporting an array of offerings, and following continued to pressure to bring North American know-how and success stories to the region, the Association of Luxury Suite Directors (ALSD) and European Arenas Association (EAA) have teamed up to present Europe’s first Premium Seat show, ALSD International, which will be held in London this October, 11-12.
This high-level conference, which will feature interactive workshops and in-depth panel sessions with a stellar speaker lineup of industry experts from across the world, will examine premium seating and how to increase revenue with new builds, renovations, service expansions and new F&B offerings.

Sales Boot Camp
Successful premium seat sales programmes do not happen by accident – they are the result of careful planning, targeting, management and training…and this is where the specially-tailored Sales Boot Camp workshops, being delivered by a host of industry experts who have all secured huge successes at their own venues, will come into their own.
Insights from those doing it right, explaining how they reached their target market to achieve sell out, together with tips from industry insiders who have delivered sales training for teams/venues across the globe, along with practical advice on sales techniques and training/coaching tips for sales managers, will ensure the Sales Boot Camp workshops are a must-attend for all club and venue sales/commercial executives, where they can come together in a facilitated environment to share ideas, challenges and solutions.
