Final Four Fest is the annual celebration of the NCAA Final Four games. This year fans of all ages came to the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX for a weekend full of youth clinics, giveaways, concerts, interactive games, special appearances and autograph signings. Seating Solutions built a temporary stadium for this event as the venue packed in fans from Oklahoma, Syracuse, Villanova and North Carolina to support their teams.
This customized stadium consisted of eight sections of our “safety code compliant” Ultimate seating system that held over 2,500 fans comfortably in our Ultimate blue flip up seats. To turn these sections into an actual stadium we built a mid-level walking platform to connect all of the units with numerous egress staircases for entry/exit. An understand tunnel allowed player access to the court. For the media, we designed and built a 20 foot tall camera platform with an independent staircase for easy access. It is important that this platform is a separate structure so the camera stays in a steady position away from jumping and excited fans.
We were able to showcase the event sponsor all around the stadium with our hi-res drop-in rail signage panels. Our panels slide into our custom rail for a clean look and could be changed out in minutes. To finish the look and keep spectators (especially small children) from climbing under the system, we covered the under-structure with clean black scrim.
Congratulations to the Villanova Wildcats! We look forward to being at Final Four Fan Fest again next year!
