#SBA TheStadiumBusiness Awards

Venue set for TheStadiumBusiness Awards 2013

Organisers Xperiology have announced that the Gala Awards Evening for TheStadiumBusiness Awards 2013 will be held on 6 June 2013 at The Point; Lancashire County Cricket Club’s stunning new £12M conference and events centre at Old Trafford.

Inaugurated in 2010, TheStadiumBusiness Awards recognise leadership, innovation & achievement in the delivery, operation and management of sports facilities globally.

The Awards are presented annually during TheStadiumBusiness Summit; the largest dedicated meeting in the world of the owners, the operators and the developers of the world’s leading stadiums, arenas and major sport venues.

Earlier this year, Xperiology announced that the 2013 edition of The Summit would be hosted in Manchester from 5-7 June 2013.

And it is now confirmed that the Gala Awards Evening – which sees representatives of each of the 2013 shortlisted nominees joined by an invited audience that will include: delegates of TheStadiumBusiness Summit; the Awards judging panel; key media organisations; and TheStadiumBusiness Awards’ commercial partners – will be held at The Point on the evening of Thursday 6 June 2013.

“We are delighted to be hosting our 2013 Awards Ceremony at The Point,” comments Ian Nuttall, Awards founder and Chair of the Judging Panel

“Our 2012 Awards evening, held in Turin this past June, was a terrific celebration of our industry’s successes.”

“The Awards are a true highlight of our annual Summit gathering,” continues Nuttall, “And we look forward to welcoming the global stadium business family as we recognise our industry’s leaders, innovators and achievers at The Point on 6 June 2013.”
