The deal will see the Forum create a Stadium Innovation Trophy, which will be presented by Philippe Auroy, Managing Director of the Consortium Stade de France, during the GSFB’s Official Trophy Ceremony, Thursday 8 March.
The GSFB will take place at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya in Barcelona from 7-9 March 2012. With its unique format that places delegates at the heart of the industry debate, the GSFB will feature keynote presentations from the likes of LOCOG Chairman, Sebastian Coe, former Manchester United legend, Eric Cantona, and London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games hopeful, Oscar Pistorius, as well as panel discussions and workshops with brands including Coca-Cola, You Tube, FIFA and b.win.
The Stade de France, owned and operated by the Consortium Stade de France, has a seating capacity of 80,000, making it the eighth largest stadium in Europe. It’s used by both the France national football and rugby teams, and regularly holds concerts and other major international events. In 2002, the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABC) awarded a prize recognizing the unique structure of the Stade de France.
