Conference Overview

Sport continues to grow within the UK – whether its attendance and participation numbers or major growth across revenue streams including sponsorship and TV rights. This, along with the arrival of the Commonwealth Games and other major competitions, is seeing the need to expand stadiums, create new sporting venues and build new technologically advanced centres and training venues to gain an advantage against the opposition. The huge developments like this will be the focus of our next event in Birmingham as we gather those who’re putting forward new plans to speak about their vision for their estates and stadia. Speakers include:

  • Trevor Payne; Head of Estates at University of Birmingham. Trevor is looking to engage with the built environment industry to promote their new University of Birmingham construction and multi-disciplinary framework that they’re set to launch shortly which will support their ambitious £700m capital program. They’re set to establish their own frameworks over the next 12 months.
  • Nick Eastwood; Chief Executive Officer of Wasps RFC. The club are planning a new training centre of excellence – and they’ll be giving an update on where their scheme is at and how people can get involved in the project.
  • Neil Carney; Programme Director (Commonwealth Games 2022) and Ashley Innes; Project Manager (Athletes Village) at Birmingham City Council. After winning the Commonwealth Games 2022 bid the Council are needing to upgrade facilities across the West Midlands to host the event, and they’ll be talking through major schemes from the athletes village to the expansion of Alexander Stadium and their plans to ensure the infrastructure, hotels and other facilitates are all in place for the expected boost in visitor numbers.
  • Anne Shaw; Director – Network Resilience at Transport for the West Midlands. Anne will be sharing details of the infrastructure plans across the region and how they’ll be driving growth across the region through new physical development. With the arrival of HS2 and improvements across the transport network to help with the increase in visitors from the commonwealth games in 2022 there are plenty of plans ongoing.

We expect to be in a position to announce additional speakers shortly.
