Arena Group helps close off tennis season

On 20 November, Andy Murray lifted the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals trophy as undisputed tennis world number one at The O2 in London.

Arena Group provided 8,500sqm of temporary structures for the event, redesigning the layout of the event after the space used for the Fanzone in 2015 became unavailable.

The facility for players and sponsors was moved to a new temporary site adjacent to the venue and the Fanzone was relocated to the inside of the venue.

Arena Group also installed its new i-Novation system, which can create a venue with a more permanent feel.

Dan Bluff, project manager for Arena Group, commented: “There was a lot of consultation, planning, investment, innovative engineering and creative thought behind this project and I think it has paid off with the best structure we’ve ever produced for an event.”

Event director, Adam Hogg said: “The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals is the climax of the men’s professional tennis season. As such, we strive to deliver the best possible experience for all stakeholders at the tournament, whether that be the players, sponsors, media or fans.

“Working closely this year with AEG and Arena Group we were able to deliver a world-class event that provided all of these groups with an enhanced offering and a positive experience for their time at The O2.
