European Arena Yearbook: VIP & Corporate – A Suite Deal

The European Arena Yearbook is now established as the leading resource for arena statistics in Europe. Working alongside association partners the European Arena Association (EAA) and the National Arena Association (NAA), the EAY surveys over 100 arenas to discover the state of the business. Information published includes ticket pricing, genre demographics, technology, VIP and staffing. 


To complement each issue, the EAY publishes two features to run alongside the main regionally published statistics, which take a definitive look into a specific sector. This year, the features will focus on VIP facilities and the effect they have on arena business.


In this regard, the EAY have teamed up with ALSD International, Europe’s leading event for the Premium Seating and Hospitality sector, to find out how you are involved in this sector, from what is required of you, and how this area of the business has evolved, to your predictions for the future.


EAY’s writer, Eamonn Forde, would like to discuss these questions with you, with the view to including you and your venue in the piece. He can be reached via email at: To complement this, you may want to think about advertising your product or service to EAY’s readership of over 5,000 in Europe. More information can be found here.


Premium Seats & Hospitality in the spotlight

Sports Venue Business (SVB), which runs the ALSD International event together with the Association of Luxury Suite Directors (ALSD), will publish the above feature across the platform, as well as on the event website, ensuring exposure to 30,000+ industry executives across the globe.


SVB and ALSD International will also be compiling a complementary piece focusing on these same issues but for the wider global sports & entertainment venue sector.
