Arena Americas Signs Exclusive 4-Year Agreement with USGA to Provide Rental Equipment for the U.S. Open
Arena Americas, a full service special event rental company, has entered into a 4-year agreement with the United States Golf Association to provide tenting, flooring and other rental equipment for the U.S. Open Championship.
The exclusive agreement includes the 2015 U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay in University Place, WA; 2016 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, PA; 2017 U.S. Open Championship at Erin Hills Golf Course in Erin, WI; and 2018 U.S. Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, NY.
Arena began installation in March for last week’s tournament at Chambers Bay, which included over 400,000 square feet of tenting structures and over 500,000 square feet of leveled elevated flooring. These pavilions were utilized for Corporate Hospitality, Merchandise, Sponsor and Media facilities, as well as Concessions, Admission and Security areas. Arena also installed a double decker structure which provided over 28,000 square feet of interior space and 600 feet of unobstructed viewing. This was the first two story structure of this type to be installed in the United States.
“Arena is proud and excited to be a part of the USGA team and this prestigious annual event,” said Jon Tabeling, Vice President of Operations for Arena Americas. “The signed partnership between the two organizations speaks highly to the commitment our team has made to be the elite rental provider in North America.”
“Throughout the planning and construction process for the 2015 U.S. Open, our team was very impressed with the resources and capabilities of Arena,” said Reg Jones, Senior Director, U.S. Open Championships. “We were very pleased with our temporary structures for the championship and look forward to continuing our relationship with Arena for the next three years.”
Arena Americas has been in the US since 1966 and supports a variety of events including some of the most prestigious sporting, corporate and private events in the country including NFL Super Bowl, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and the Daytona 500.
