Stadium Experience is a not-for-profit marketing collaboration with around 50 major football, rugby and cricket club members. Our aim is to promote their non-matchday activities, such as a venue for conferences and events. We meet across the country five times a year, to discuss the latest industry updates and share best practice.
As part of these meetings, we can provide time for companies to present their product or service for use in stadium venues. The benefit of this opportunity is meeting many clubs all at one time, saving time and money in travelling to each club individually. This is the ideal opportunity for companies to get that initial foot in the door, and enable further discussions.
The main members meeting predominantly includes conference, events and sales managers from each stadium venue.
In addition, at every other meeting we also have the Public Catering management from each stadium in attendance. They have a separate meeting alongside the other meeting to discuss best practice for public catering on match days (i.e. public kiosks and bars). This audience is particularly keen to hear more about food and drink products as well as catering innovations.
Your presentation slot will include up to 20 minutes for your presentation to your chosen audience, and time for any questions. You are welcome to do formal presentations, more relaxed demonstrations, or something else entirely! This will be then followed with networking opportunities over an informal lunch, as well as a tour of the stadium. In the current climate, we are also exploring virtual meetings and have presentation slots available at these meetings too.
The list of meeting attendees and their contact details will be sent to you after the meeting for you to follow up directly with clubs. Your contact details will also be shared with all clubs that are part of the Stadium Experience group. All member venues (around 50) are invited to each meeting, and the list of members can be found here. Recent new members include; Burnley, Celtic, Charlton Athletic, Croke Park Stadium, Gloucester Rugby, Leeds United, Manchester United, Munster Rugby, Notts County, Ospreys Rugby, St. George’s Park, St Helen’s Rugby, Stoke City, Swansea City, Warrington Wolves and West Ham United.

Here are some testimonials from past presenters at our meetings.
Presenting at Stadium Experience meetings has led directly to a number of bookings for our digital media services at stadia all over the UK. Being afforded the opportunity to speak before relevant representatives from so many different venues greatly reduces the time and hassle of cold calling, and when presenting at subsequent meetings we have been able to call upon existing clients in the room to give their testimonials to the group, significantly adding to the trusted reputation we are developing in the industry. Investing in Stadium Experience presentations has been extremely worthwhile and we will certainly be continuing to present as well as exploring other ways to promote ourselves through the group. – Simon Sloan, Managing Director
Stadium Experience Members Meetings provide an ideal opportunity to present products & services to influential, knowledgeable, decision makers in an important commercial sector of the football industry. The Stadium Experience Management Team always provides a friendly and professionally courteous environment in which to communicate business and in which to network with their Membership from many different Stadia. We enjoy our relationship with Stadium Experience. It has proved commercially rewarding and we will continue to make provision in our marketing budget to attend Stadium Experience Members Meetings and to support the annual Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards. – Derek Collins, Director
It was great to have so many key people under one roof, it gave me a chance to not only present but also had time to chat to people over lunch which helped to build some good relationships, they got to see our personal story which is hard to get over in an email or over the phone. – Mark Stuart, Sales Director
Stadium Experience has given us the perfect platform to develop our business within stadia. Through Stadium Experience we have been able to meet the people we need to see in order to grow our business. We have won new business and we continue to speak to potential customers to gain further new contracts. We will continue to be involved with Stadium Experience in the future. – Shane McCarthy, Company Director
We continue to invest in our relationship with Stadium Experience, along with sponsoring the annual awards we recently attended a Stadium Experience Members meeting at Arsenal FC. That session allowed us to reach out to the members and engage with them regarding technology innovation in their sector. The feedback was priceless and helped to endorse our trusted advisor status in existing clients and new ones. This is an exciting sector to partner, and we found all the members to be engaging and innovative with their objectives. – Steve McArdle, Business Development Director

Our meeting opportunities are popular, and are often sold out several months in advance. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. If you are looking to present at multiple meetings, we recommend spreading this across the year to maximise your exposure and avoid repetition. Booking two consecutive meetings is not permitted to ensure variety at our events.
