Seating Solutions teamed up with Luxury Brand Partners to provide seating for Front Row 2016. Front Row 2016 was a four-day event in which industry leaders delivered education and shared their experiences with top salon owners, stylists and trendsetters from around the world.
The event took place at the Mana Wynwood Studios in Miami and featured an array of talent from Oribe Hair Care, R+Co, V76 by Vaughn, Smith & Cult and Goldwell, including showcases from Howard McLaren, Garren, Thom Priano, Dineh Mohajer, Vaughn Accord, Ronnie Stam, Kien Hoang, Joey George, Coby Alcantar, Louis Orozco, IGK Salon and Vivienne Mackinder. Additional notable names included: Good to Great author Jim Collins delivering the key notes, Barney’s Creative Director Simon Doonan taking part in a special presentation, and comedian Natasha Leggero was featured as a guest host.
Seating Solutions was able to seat over 3,000 people comfortably with a combination of our 19.5” wide flip up stadium style Floortrack and tiered seating systems. With no front legs on our flip up seats and a 30” tread depth per row spacing, Front Row 2016 was able to get 20% more seats over conventional folding chairs. The Floortrack system was quick to assemble because the track laid flat on the ground and the seats locked into the track. For the events VIPs we supplied black padded seat covers for added comfort.
With the tiered system there was a challenge at hand as existing columns filled the space. With some design creativity and the modularity of the Ultimate system we were able to seat over 1,000 additional people with our safety code compliant, Ultimate tiered seating system. We helped showcase the events sponsors with our drop-in rail signage panels on the rear of the tiered seating system. To finish the look we covered the bottom 7’8” of the understructure with clean black scrim.
