Looking Forward

The main goal of the Sports Venue Business (SVB) platform is to provide an independent forum for industry professionals to share their views on everything from the latest ‘hot topics’ and best practices to the innovative products, services and solutions that are changing the way in which modern sporting events and sports venues are being designed, built, operated and managed.



Just as the fan experience at today’s sporting events and sports venues has evolved, so has the way in which we expect information to be delivered. With this in mind, and to ensure a media-rich experience, the content for the news, views, interviews, case studies, project developments and reports published on Sports Venue Business – which also appear in our Weekly e-News Report as well as on our Social Media channels, i.e. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter – are all delivered via a host of different mediums, from written pieces to interactive webinars, videos and podcasts.



Adding an interactive element into the mix, YOU, our readers can highlight the kind of subject matter and content YOU want to see covered on the website via the Sports Venue Business Group page on LinkedIn; simply enter your ideas and note if you would like to provide input and join some 1,040+ top industry execs.


The Sports Venue Business Group page also makes for an excellent knowledge-sharing and networking platform.
