Stadia & Arena Bolsters Speakers List

Six more speakers in the sports venue industry have been confirmed as speakers for the Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2015 conference taking place this September.

This brings the total number of confirmed speakers to more than 50 at what organizers call a must-attend event. Organizers attribute this to the fact Asia will host the next three Olympics following the Games in Rio in 2016.

"With Asia Pacific offering an unrivaled number of sports venue development opportunities over the next eight years, with the region playing host to the 2018 Winter Olympics, 2018 Commonwealth Games, 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Summer Olympics, Singapore is definitely the place to be this September if your company wants to secure involvement in any of these projects," organizers say.

Newly confirmed speakers include Trevor Easley of Host Country Security Design, Brian Morris of the Melbourne & Olympics Park Trust and Jin Teik Oon of the Singapore Sports Hub.

Also confirmed as the closing keynote speakers are members of the Disney Institute Alice Edinger and Wing Tan, two top executives within the company.
