The entire conference was broadcast live on the web.

The meeting represented a fruitful opportunity to compare experiences developed within the STADIUM Project (recent demonstrations for the Football World Cup 2010 in Cape Town South Africa Commonwealth Games 2010 in Delhi India and forthcoming demo for Summer Olympics 2012 in London UK) and the current status of technology and organisation in terms of mobility transport networks and infrastructure in the countries hosting future sports events.

The event was also an occasion to present the interactive database of the STADIUM Handbook the output manual of the project containing guide-lines to be used as a model for the management of mobility during big events.
