TheStadiumBusiness is delighted to return to Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester for our 11th edition.

Emirates Old Trafford, home to Lancashire County Cricket Club, is a world-class international sporting stadium, playing host to some of cricket’s most iconic moments since 1857 and also hosting world famous artists such as Rihanna and Beyoncé, and the recent One Love Manchester benefit concert.

Ian Nuttall, Founder, TheStadiumBusiness, commented: “Over the past decade we’ve hosted TheStadiumBusiness Summit at such acclaimed venues as Wembley, The O2, Juventus Stadium, Camp Nou, the Bernabéu and Lord’s.

With its extensive conference and events facilities – along with the new, fully integrated Hilton Garden Inn hotel – Emirates Old Trafford provides not only a great host facility but also offers our international delegates a unique showcase for multi-use stadium operations.”

Daniel Gidney, Chief Executive at Lancashire County Cricket Club, said: “We are thrilled that Emirates Old Trafford has been appointed by Xperiology as the host venue of the prestigious TheStadiumBusiness Summit. That we will once again be welcoming the leading individuals from the stadium industry to Manchester in 2020 is a real testament to the continuing growth and development of the stadium and the city.”


PS. TheStadiumBusiness secured the entire new Hilton Garden Inn Hotel on site at Emirates Old Trafford especially for our attendees, with many rooms overlooking the pitch. But these rooms will sell out fast. Book now and get the best rate and the best location! More details here
