The Milwaukee Brewers and Delaware North Sportservice partnered to renovate all existing concession stands, as well as introduce new stands, portables, and three new bars to Miller Park, featuring 24 draft beers from all over the state of Wisconsin. New concession menus draw on Milwaukee’s rich food traditions and burgeoning restaurant scene to expand beyond the typical ballpark fare. By bringing exterior materials onto the interior façades of concession stands, and using a historic local painting practice, fans know what is available from a greater distance, allowing for faster queuing and service, especially with 33% additional points of sale.

New Elo 15-inch touch-panel tablets from Bypass were also installed for concessions ordering, as were HDMI wall jacks and audio jacks for customers that would like to do presentations before or during the game. Lastly, the Red Sox customized the Shoretel touchscreen telephones in suites to include corporate logos and signage.


 

From the arena down to the food, every detail was taken into consideration at Golden 1 Center. For Legends Hospitality General Manager Michael Tuohy, the idea was to not only create new menus that brought different cultures, tastes, and fresh options together, but also source 90% of the food featured within 150 miles of the arena. Golden 1 Center has proved that fast food can be delicious and healthy. And with 27 gluten-free options, five vegan options, and 12 vegetarian options, Golden 1 Center aims to offer many options for its visitors to choose from.

Ping HD’s “EngagePHD” cloud-based software was chosen by the Orlando City Soccer Club and ICON Venue Group as the content management system (CMS) to drive over 175 video screens at the recently opened Orlando City Stadium. The solution is used in Orlando to meet common operating challenges for F&B and technology in the venue marketplace, including internet protocol television (IPTV), digital menu boards, suite signage, and the scoreboard. This installation was done in conjunction with Samsung SSP screens and the use of no additional external media players. This project, with its specific technology integrations, is the first of its type in the industry.

HNTB, in partnership with Ross-Tarrant Architects, is designing a new 106,000-square-foot high-performance football center, outdoor practice fields, and outdoor training area. The two-level facility will be located adjacent to Kroger Field (formerly Commonwealth Stadium), and connected to the existing indoor practice fieldhouse. In developing a state-of-the-art facility, one of the primary goals was for this facility to be more than a glorified recruiting tool, and include program areas that were designed to optimize the overall sports performance of student-athletes.
