ASPIRE4SPORT 2013 Congress and Exhibition, which will take place from 16 to 19 November of this year at Aspire Dome, will bring the world-class sports facilities conference, Coliseum SUMMIT.

With exclusive presentations, case studies and interactive panel discussions, Coliseum SUMMIT– part of ASPIRE4SPORT 2013 – is the preeminent conference in all stadium-related aspects, and brings to the fore key figures and personalities in the industry, together with their projects and discusses key issues.

This year at ASPIRE4SPORT, Coliseum SUMMIT will bring Professor VolkwinMarg, one of the world’s most accomplished stadium designers.

Professor Marg has been involved in a number of famous and award winning stadiums. These include two 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums in South Africa, the refurbishment of the historic 1936 Berlin Olympic Stadium, the delightfully angular Sports Center in Shenzhen, China, and the Warsaw National Stadium of Poland.

During his stay in Doha, Professor Marg will be delivering a presentation on the latest trends, ideas, and technologies in stadium design. He will also be in direct conversation with key Qatari decision makers in the sports business industry,as he will be part of an open discussion on the opportunities Qatar possess to deliver exceptional sports projects and events.

Professor Marg’s philosophy is to have a very spectator-focused design, which will allow a great viewer experience. Fans in Qatar will appreciate his designs as he easily creates the connection between the excitement of the crowd and the comfort and sharp view of the game, which is a combination admired by everyone in the stands.

“I want optimal density and vision for the fans. I have particular demands on the way I want to lead the public – from the different fans to VIP guests. The most important thing in differentiating stadiums is the location and the differing identity of their corresponding cities.”Says Professor Marg.

Hamad Saif Buhindi, Executive Director of ASPIRE4SPORT said: “ASPIRE4SPORT and Coliseum SUMMIT join hands to bring to the region the most respected figures in the sports business industry. Professor Marg is an iconic stadium designer, and bringing him to Qatar and the region through our event reflects our position as the gateway to the sports business industry in the region.”

Coliseum SUMMIT will be bringing together all stakeholders involved in the planning, development, and execution of the facilities in the sports industry, from city planning councils to sports venues professionals.

The summit is a conference and networking event dedicated to the various challenges and solutions related to the sports venue sector around the world. Part of the event is an international conference with exclusive presentations, case studies and interactive panel discussions.

The world-renowned Aspire Dome will once again host what has been established as the region’s premiere sports industry event.
