Sports Event Management Conference in London

Strategies for designing and delivering a seamless and effective venue overlay will come under the spotlight at the inaugural International Sports Event Management Conference at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London, on 22-23 November. Creating venue and event overlay has become a crucial factor in the management of all major events. It is the term for the design and provision of the facilities in and around a venue which enable it to meet the specific operational needs of a particular event.

Jeff Keas, Associate Principal at HOK Sport and a specialist in facility and overlay design, will draw on his experience of projects ranging from the 1994 FIFA World Cup to the Atlanta, Sydney and Salt Lake City Olympic Games, to lead a session which underscores the increasing importance of efficient and cost effective event overlay in the major events sectors.

The two-day ISEM conference is presented by Rushmans, organisers of the successful International Sports Security Summit for the last two years. ISEM has been developed to deliver key information and contacts to all those involved in hosting and managing sports events and the companies which service and supply them. A comprehensive exhibition of services and products which support and enhance the work of sports event managers will run alongside the conference. Breaks and networking sessions will be tailored to maximise exhibition footfall and the opportunities to mingle.
