The ongoing success of the Adelaide Oval has been reflected in the elevation of Chief Executive Officer Andrew Daniels to the judging panel of the most prestigious stadium awards in the world.
Mr Daniels has been invited to sit on the seven-person panel for the 2015 Stadium Business Awards to be presented in Barcelona later this year.
He joins other high-profile stadium executives on the judging panel including Roger Maslin, the managing director of the UK’s famous Wembley Stadium, Peter McKenna of Ireland’s Croke Park, Marie Lindquist of Sweden’s Stockholm Globe Arenas and Al Guido of the San Francisco 49ers.
Award categories include Venue of the Year, Sustainability and Project of the Year. Winners in the 2014 awards included the Tele2 Arena (Stockholm, Sweden) which took out the Venue of the Year Award and First Direct Arena (Leeds, UK) which won the New Venue Award.
The awards are the highlight of the 2015 Stadium Business Summit – the largest dedicated meeting in the world of owners, operators and developers of leading stadiums – which is being held between June 9-11 in Barcelona.
