There are many benefits of being part of an industry leading organisation commercially, benchmarking and from information sharing of best practice.”
Collette Salmon, Sales Manager at Liverpool Football Club, and voluntary Chair of Stadium Experience, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome all of our new members this year. 2017 marks 15 years since the association very first started, and to see it grow by a quarter in the last 10 months is phenomenal growth. This really shows how the clubs highly value the sharing of best practice, networking opportunities, promotional activities, as well as recognising the best in the industry at our annual awards. We are very much led by our members, so if there are changing markets and new focuses then we prioritise these initiatives. We actively welcome any football or rugby stadium venue who would like to find out more about us, and potentially join our consortium.”
