Arena Summit 2022 & Soccer Congress


goracon shows innovations at ARENA SUMMIT 2022 and at the soccer congress in St. Gallen

Autumn is congress and trade fair time, so goracon was represented with its team as an exhibitor at the ARENA SUMMIT in Frankfurt and at the soccer congress in St. Gallen, Switzerland. At both events goracon has been present for years and is looking forward to exciting lectures and good conversations every year.

For the fourth time, the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt was the stage for the ARENA SUMMIT, the leading event of the German-speaking sports facility industry. Also for the fourth time, goracon was on site with a team and presented the latest innovations.

The ARENA SUMMIT was again a great success for both the organizers and goracon. More than 700 participants came to the industry meeting with more than 20 expert forums and 100 top-class speakers.

Top attended expert forums, a large Exhibition Area with over 30 exhibitors and an atmospheric evening event: The ARENA SUMMIT 2022, hosted by the trade magazine Stadionwelt, ESB Marketing Netzwerk and Deutsche Bank Park, was the perfect opportunity for all participants to stay up to date, exchange ideas and network.

The 700 participants also included a good 50 members of the Association of German Stadium Operators (VdS). With this professional audience, two "excursions" were made to the new wheelchair courts at Deutsche Bank Park. Further application possibilities were discussed in personal talks with the staff on site and an open exchange was cultivated.

"The Arena Summit is one of the most exciting formats in the sports industry and offers us great opportunities to maintain existing contacts and make new ones", Thomas Pfeifer is satisfied with the event in Frankfurt.

In addition to an insight into the completed projects, Goracon also gave an outlook on the upcoming projects in Dortmund, Frankfurt and Berlin.

A little more contemplative but more international, the event took place in the idyllic St. Gallen, in the Kybun-Park, the home ground of the FC St. Gallen, about 150 experts from the soccer industry met and discussed the current situation and gave an outlook on upcoming challenges. Next year, the Football Congress will be hosted in Hamburg for the first time, opening its doors at the Millerntor Stadium of FC St Pauli in October. The team from goracon will also be there.
