Yasser Al Mulla is Landscape & Sport Turf Management Senior Manager at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy. He will be one of the seminar speakers during the ESSMA Summit 2018 and will take part in two seminars on Day 2. In the morning session he will participate in the Pitch Management Seminar where the main focus will be on Turf Development Projects. In the afternoon session, Yassel Al Mulla will update participants about the Stadium Progress of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar during the Stadium Development II Seminar.

In the run-up to the ESSMA Safety Management Workshop that will be organised in Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park from 7 to 8 November, ESSMA interviewed two of the Borussia Dortmund hosts: Dr. Christian Hockenjos (Director of Organisation) and Kai Ruben (Security Manager). Both of them are profoundly involved in Borussia Dortmund’s match day operations and are the ideal experts to talk to when it comes to safety management at Germany’s largest football stadium.

During the ESSMA European Stadium Tour to Russia (2-5 July 2017), one of the stadiums we visited was the future Dynamo Stadium. With the VTB Arena incorporated into the stadium, both venues and its surroundings are part of an enormous project in Moscow and we talked to the Head of Project at VTB Arena Park, Andrei Peregoudov.

From 29 August to 1 September, ESSMA will organise its Global Stadium tour to several venues in Miami and Minneapolis. Patrick Talty will show participants around the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Recently, ESSMA interviewed Patrick Talty, General Manager at the U.S. Bank Stadium about the day-to-day operations. 

Last week we had a chat with Michael Lloyd, Deputy Stadium Manager at Arsenal FC and speaker on the first day of the ESSMA-BASIS Smart & Sustainable Stadium Workshop that will take place at Emirates and Twickenham Stadium in London from 7 to 8 June 2017.
