With the UK government having confirmed that mass participation events, including conferences and sports, can recommence as of October 1, ALSD International is set to be the first industry event back. The physical edition – being held in the recently redeveloped Main Stand of Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium – will be fully virtualised, ensuring a high level of interactivity for both in-person and remote attendees.
The comprehensive conference programme will cover a wide range of industry-specific topics, including:
- Reopening with Confidence
- Growing the Revenue Stream: What Adds Value to the Bottom Line
- The Big Event: How to Maximise Your Value
- The Future of Premium Seating
- Top Successes in Sponsorship Activation

As a new-normal event benefitting from both physical and virtual elements, attendees will be assured of not only optimised opportunities to knowledge-share, network and do business over the course of the two days, but now long after the physical event’s conclusion, with the microsite to offer a wealth of information, all available at the touch of a button.
