The industry has setting out to fill our venues, utilizing previously dormant areas, designing flexible spaces, and enhancing staff across the board. Corporate events, eSports tournaments, high school and collegiate games, and even sports gaming are coming to – or have already arrived – in our venues. To accommodate the increase in non-gameday events and opportunities, teams and venues have to tackle and balance topics like ancillary revenue and sponsorships opportunities, overuse and sustainability of venue spaces, logistics, staffing, F&B, and technology upgrades required.
