Inside T-Mobile Arena, the dramatic VIP entry emulates sedimentary layering with custom undulating wall panels. Event level suites and clubs alike feature custom-designed, plated bronze tectonic-style tables and beautiful windswept Las Vegas Rock. Two clubs on the main concourse reflect the day and night desert with back-lit soft magenta and blue ceilings respectively. The suite level finishes are inspired by the desert sunset. Innovative banquette seating in lieu of fixed arena seating allows patrons to spread out comfortably. Loge boxes and terrace tables offer first-class perks and exclusive privileges. And two tower clubs jut out of the upper deck, connected by the plush Hyde Lounge.

The newest private infield suite, named Lynx Mountain after one of Calgary Stampede's legendary bucking horses, sits just above the rodeo arena and accommodates up to 48 guests with up-close action in style. Rustic touches, including wainscoting and table tops made with wood reclaimed from a Welsh chapel, combine with modern touches like custom track lighting featuring the Calgary Stampede logo and brand. Design work is by Baboushkin Design Group of Calgary.


Two suite options are offered in Golden 1 Center – traditional suites and the unique living-room-style lofts. Both options have access to the arena’s farm-to-fork cuisine, premium clubs, and lounges. Each suite features cabinets and closets for storage, refrigerators, and televisions controlled through the Sacramento Kings + Golden 1 Center app. Guests can also use the app to control the lighting in the suites, summon a concierge, or access advanced stats. With networking and entertainment in mind, the lofts have a sustainable environment that utilizes materials harvested throughout the Sacramento region. All suites and lofts offer a premium experience in the Suite Level Club.


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.


Suite renovations at Progressive Field occurred in two phases. Phase I, which took place before the 2016 season, constructed ten suites in total, consisting of six Legacy Suites and four standard-size suites. Phase II occurred during this past offseason, and involved a larger number of suites. The project included taking 27 existing suites and remodeling them into 18 newly designed suites, consisting of four Legacy Suites, eight standard-size suites, and six party suites. Each suite is designed to provide a comfortable and luxurious setting to enjoy Cleveland Indians baseball. All suites are equipped with a large HD TV, comfortable seating, and an individual concierge for food and beverage orders.


As part of a $5 million upgrade project, STAPLES Center completed full renovations to all 154 private suites, 16 event suites, and the premium level concession stands. Each private suite has a sophisticated feel with new carpeting, cabinet finishes, and wood grain floor tile, that all adds up to a distinctly contemporary design. With a palette of materials inspired by the carbon fiber and stainless steel details, the new suite designs evoke the qualities of a dynamic and technologically sophisticated machine. STAPLES Center opted for a deeper color palette centered around a new high-top table.


Giving a glimpse of the backstage glamour and tucked away on the gantry of the American Express Invites Lounge, The O2 arena has created a luxurious and unique space for entertaining up to 12 guests, who can relax in the privacy of their own Dressing Room A before taking prime seats in the arena for the show. Guests get ready for their close-ups in the show-stopping star mirror. They can sip on signature cocktails, while watching the buzz of the bar below from a private window. A personal host will see that all guests get the superstar treatment. Design is by Brighton-based firm Platform Group.


The Nippert Stadium renovation project had two major goals: enhance the fan experience and strengthen the quality of the campus. This project on the University of Cincinnati’s confined urban campus raises the standard for collegiate stadium facilities. The dramatic architecture contributes to the distinctive surroundings by delivering a showcase building for the university and improving the gameday and non-gameday environment. All interior design aspects reinforced the building’s aesthetic, highlighting a large, diagonal truss system that conveys the overall scale of the building.
