The ESSMA Summit is the must-attend stadium industry event by ESSMA (European Stadium & Safety Management Association) in partnership with the EPFL (European Professional Football Leagues), ECA (European Club Association) and the ICSS (International Centre for Sport Security).

Get an impression of ESSMA’s successful 2016. We enjoyed a great Summit in Bilbao, an inspiring small & medium sized stadium tour to Switzerland, Austria and Hungary and our second USA Fan Experience Tour took us to the West Coast, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. 

The Fan Entertainment Workshop took place in Valencia CF’s Mestalla Stadium 22nd and 23rd November 2016. There were interventions from Valencia CF, LaLiga and the AFEPE (National Association of Football Fans) on day 1 and Stoke City FC and Juventus FC on Day 2. This workshop offered a behind-the-scenes tour, guided by Valencia CF staff. 

The ESSMA Summit 2017 opened with the Stadium Development Seminar, providing insights in different European stadium projects. The seminar welcomed 250 people, which is more than twice the amount of participants compared to last year’s edition in Bilbao. 

From 16 to 18 January, the third annual ESSMA Summit took place at Parc Olympique Lyonnais. With 350 delegates participating, this edition proved to be successful.
