PLACE:
The Rittenhouse Hotel, 210 W Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA 19103

PROGRAM:

Today, the venue itself is a major part of the audience’s experience of any modern sporting event. From camera angles to locker room facilities, concessions to seating, a well-designed and executed arena can turn the big game into a once-in-a-lifetime event. On the other hand, a poorly designed stadium can distract from the very athletic contest it’s supposed to showcase.

Our panel of professionals will discuss their experiences working with sports stadiums, the challenges such venues pose to their employees and the creative ways the panelists have resolved conflicts when they arise.
