The International Association of Event Hosts (IAEH) exists for representatives of international destinations to collaborate together to generate the best possible value from hosting major sporting and cultural events, and provide a voice for ‘not for profit’ hosts of events.

IAEH provides a platform for members to learn from the successes and challenges of major events, share knowledge and generate greater long term social and economic benefits from hosting events.

IAEH members benefit from ‘members only’ meetings and online sessions, a knowledge sharing platform, and advocacy at the international level. The IAEH work and activities are focused on nine key areas of interest including “measuring social and economic benefits from hosting major events”, “attracting visiting tourists”, and “ hosting safely, securely and on budget”. 

The IAEH membership is open for all cities, regions and countries that host major sporting or cultural events.

World Stadium Congress

World Stadiums Congress, run by global leaders in stadium and arena development, will be a 3-part series exploring the different strategies venue owners and operators must account for moving forward.

The age of coronavirus has seen the sporting and entertainment industry forced to adapt in remarkable ways to health and safety regulations. With the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games postponed, along with various sporting seasons either cancelled or on standby, stadium owners and operators remain focused on what the post-covid era will look like when re-engaging fans back into the stands.

In spite of navigating the immediate impact of COVID-19, stadium project planning, digital fan experiences and security remains intact – as evident from the commencement on construction of the $1.7billion Guanzhou Evergrande 100,000 seat stadium in April 2020.

Tune in to presentations and case studies led by speakers from Formula 1 (UK), Los Angeles Football Club (USA), Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam), Titanium Security Arena (AU) Singapore Sports Hub and many more!
