It’s no secret that fans attend games for an experience. Today’s organizations are more focused on bringing fans an engaging atmosphere off the court more than ever. State-of-the-art venues are a key resource for teams to drive revenue and increase fan satisfaction. With this, innovative signage plays an important part of game day for any sporting event.
Fans probably never realize the impact digital, interactive signage makes during the game. Imagine announcing a starting lineup without the visual effects of a LED ribbon or quality scoreboard.
Creative uses for LED signage increase the demand for top technology and operation of these solutions. Location, content, and optimization are key elements for venue upgrades and stadium development. Today’s LED signage can be seen in elevators, at concession stands, VIP suites, and even bathrooms.
From Entrance to Exit
A fan experience begins from the moment a patron parks. Thin LED window hangs offer a new opportunity for external messaging without sacrificing internal natural light. The slim, low-res mesh design is versatile for creative design and graphics. FLEXClearTM is a unique, LED display that is 65-75 percent transparent.
Ribbon boards are the norm throughout the sports industry. They continue to evolve, increasing in size and resolution. LED ribbon boards are utilized for court activities, crowd commands, sponsorship elements and score updates.
With the help of LED solutions, the sports industry can leverage the main focal point of any event – the sporting floor. Whether it’s the court or concourse, floor graphics immerse the fan in a full 360 experience from the moment they step into the arena. In-floor lights, like LumiFLEXTM surface and floor products, can provide consistent, head-turning content from the upper deck to the hardwood. The possibilities are endless and add additional features to the entire game day presentation.
Increased Demand for Engagement
No matter the venue or event, at any given moment all signage should enforce the team brand. Features that display the logo, sponsors, and opportunities to create fan engagement are important parts of the entire patron experience.
With digital signage, fans now have an opportunity – and expectation – to be part of the action while in the stadium. The demand for fans to interact with content, such as social channels, contests, and polls through smartphones, make LED solutions more important now than ever.
