Think Big and Hold Your Next Event in a Stadium

Think Big and Hold Your Next Event in a Stadium

Last month, Unique Venues held its annual member conference at Heinz Field in beautiful Pittsburgh, one of America’s best places to visit. The event was a success for many reasons, but one of the main ones was the fact that we chose Heinz Field for the venue. Heinz Field is the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Panthers of the University of Pittsburgh, and it delivers an amazing game-day experience. It is also used for various concerts and other entertainment events. However, that is only part of the story.

If you ever wondered what stadiums and arenas are used for when there isn’t a sporting event or concert, you should know that event organizers are booking a stadium or arena near them for a wide variety of events. At Unique Venues, we have matched them with memorable show-stopping stadiums and arenas for weddings, corporate events, tradeshows, family reunions, and more. A stadium or arena makes a big statement and signals right away that this will be an important and exciting event. If you are organizing a gathering or corporate event for a larger group of people, here are some of the reasons why we love the idea of stadium and arena venue rentals and you should too.

Technology: In order to create a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience, stadium designers need to always have the best audio and visual equipment. Stadium improvements to replace aging technology are very common. As an event planner who is renting the stadium for an event, you will have likely have access to that same equipment. Just think about it for a second: You could welcome your guests on the jumbo screen or create a stunning presentation using the stadium’s state-of-the-art lighting and AV equipment.

There’s Plenty of Staff Available: To ensure the event goes as smoothly as possible, you will need to have an educated, experienced staff that understands what is needed and how to spot possible issues. Stadium staff must facilitate events with tens of thousands of people at one time. When you rent a stadium for an event, you will also likely have access to its hired staff as well who will help make your event run like a well-oiled engine.

Parking: Have you ever gone to an event and the parking situation was a disaster? There is very little that can start an event on the wrong foot more than a lack of parking. Luckily, with a stadium or arena, this is not an issue. As we mentioned above, stadiums and arenas hold events with more than ten thousand people all of the time. Having adequate parking is a must, so you shouldn’t have to worry about this
