The seminar will provide an insight into some of the facility infrastructure for this summer’s Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and exploring the legacy benefits of hosting major international sporting events.

This networking event is bringing together clients, operators, and designers to discuss the design and operation of sports and leisure facilities that can benefit the local population, students as well as encouraging wider participation in sport.

Including a building visit, the seminar will give delegates a chance to learn more about the design and operation of the sports facilities at the university and a chance to explore them afterwards with a building tour.
