About Stadium Experience

Stadium Experience is a not-for-profit marketing consortium and aims to share best practice and promote stadia as unique and prestigious venues for meetings, conferences and events.  The group was established in 2002 for football venues, and evolved in 2013 to welcome rugby stadium venues too.  With increasing membership, Stadium Experience has significantly stepped up its activities in recent years.  Some examples include; sharing best practice and ideas with five dedicated networking events each year, joint exhibition opportunities (such as BNC London, Venues & Events Live and Event Organisers Forum, The Meetings Show and more), meeting event buyers and key agencies as a consortium, regular newsletters, an annual recognitions awards celebration; The Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards and much more.

Tony Crosbie, Business Development Director for Creativevents at Charlton Athletic FC, commented: “We are delighted to be joining Stadium Experience and look forward to benefiting from being part of a large team of stadia experts. With this being Creativevents first stadium we are excited to share best practice with fellow stadiums, as well as benchmark ourselves against the finest in the industry.  We are equally excited by the opportunity of hosting some great conferences and events on behalf of the Stadium Experience.”  

Debbie Rigney, Marketing & PR Manager for Stadium Experience, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Charlton Athletic FC into our association, and look forward to working together to promote stadia as venues and continually sharing best practice to drive up standards across the industry.  We would love to hear from any football or rugby stadium venue who would like to find out more about us, and potentially join our group.”
