Fan Experience Forum

Fan Experience Forum heads to Etihad Stadium, Manchester for 2013

Following the outstanding success of the inaugural event in Turin, organisers Xperiology are delighted to announce that Fan Experience Forum 2013 will take place at Etihad Stadium, Manchester on 5 June 2013.

A high-level networking and knowledge exchange event designed to address the specific needs of key executives engaged in fan-based sports facility businesses, Fan Experience Forum was launched in May 2012, alongside the second day of TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2012 in Turin, Italy.

“We were pleased with the success of our inaugural Forum,” explains Ian Nuttall, founder of Fan Experience Forum.

“The Forum was packed for all sessions – drawing a crowd out of the parallel Summit sessions – with plenty of discussion and debate.”

“Clearly there is an appetite for more content on the fan experience,” continues Nuttall. “Consequently, for 2013, Fan Experience Forum will have its own full-day programme.”

Fan Experience Forum 2013 will be held on 5th June 2013 at Manchester City FC’s Etihad Stadium; kick-starting the main visitor programme for TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2013 in Manchester (which runs 6-7 June 2013.)


Manchester City FC’s award-winning fan engagement activities have been recognised throughout football and the sporting world as ‘best in class’.

“From the pre-match City Square precinct to post-game digital activation, the club has defined and delivered a ‘holistic, lifecycle’ approach to fan engagement around Etihad Stadium,” explains Nuttall.

“As such, we’re delighted to be heading to Etihad Stadium for Fan Experience Forum 2013.” //Click here for more about the venue
