Arena Americas Awarded Best Tent Installation at 2015 Special Event Gala Awards
The Gala Awards have been given by Special Events Magazine since 1986 and recognize the most exciting event work from companies worldwide. For the 2015 Gala Awards, the magazine received entries in 35 categories from nine different countries.
Arena Americas was nominated for and awarded Best Tent Installation for the temporary event space, Chrome, at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, WI. Chrome is a luxury three season clearspan tent modeled after the industrial look of the museum itself featuring horizontal tinted glass windows, custom silver-grey vinyl, carpeted floors, hydraulic double doors, ceiling liners, HVAC for climate control and a sound proof interior divider wall that can be closed to allow two events to take place concurrently.
Arena Americas worked closely with the museum to create the look and feel that they wanted for the space, providing multiple design iterations and photorealistic 3D renderings along the way. The resulting 14,000 square foot custom clearspan structure can accommodate up to 700 guests in theatre style seating or 450 guests at tables for events 7 months out of the year at the museum.
