Stadium and Venue Design and Development Summit in Kiev to include Olimpiyskiy Stadium tour

A tour of the Olimpiyskiy Stadium by GMP Architects and Construction IQ has now been confirmed for the 3rd Stadium and Venue Design and Development Summit in Kiev. The 3-day event will take place on 28-30 October 2013 and will debate elements of European best practices.

GMP Architects and Construction IQ were responsible for the reconstruction of the original stadium (opened in 1923), including the construction of a new roof system, rebuilding of the 1948 plinth structure and redesign of the lower part of the stand.

Anastasia Reshetnikova, Summit Director said: "We are truly delighted to be partnering with GMP Architects for the Oilmpiyskiy Stadium tour. We cover a tremendous range of topics throughout the event, but actually seeing a stadium in real life and understanding how various technologies have been implemented is always a highlight. With the recent UEFA championships having been held here I can't think of a better stadium to visit".
