ServicesStadium development & management
We provided a number of training programs for the management of the current Petrovsky Stadium and new F.C. Zenit Stadium. The training program consisted of theoretical modules which could be brought into practice at (amongst others) ‘Sensation White’ concert in Amsterdam ArenA, a concert by the Dutch band ‘De Dijk’ in the Heineken Music Hall, and a concert by Madonna in the Ziggo Dome.
For the new F.C. Zenit Stadium we conducted an acoustic study with acoustic expert Rob Metkemeijer and Peutz, and executed a crowd simulation study with InControl.
