Tips on selecting the Best Stadium Seats
When it comes to stadium seating, the logic is not packing the largest number of seats per row and making the greatest profit margins. Arena seating is about achieving the ultimate consumer experience. What a logistics planner should remember is that many times the seat users utilize their seats for hours on end as they wait for a theater performance or during their favorite sports game. During this whole time, the fans should remember one thing whether their team wins or loses, they were offered a comfortable space and seat, in order to enjoy their view. There are several aspects that should be factored in when selecting the best stadium seats as we will clearly see in this article.
The main objective of a stadium seat is to offer the best accommodation and comfort for the user for the time that they will utilize their seats. Remember, fans and other clients’ book for weeks on end to get a seat in their favorite event, sports game, and theater performance. It is important for them to go out there and speak highly of the comfort of the stadium seats. This can be the make or break of a facility’s profit margins. After all, the biggest profit margins are found in consumer loyalty. The facility must offer such great satisfaction that the users look forward to the chance to come back again and again.
First and foremost, the seats should hold the weight of any user. The logistics team should go for strong and durable seats that can be used by anybody’s size and weight. Cheap and light seats will crumble under the weight of some users and require continuous replacements and repairs. The seats should be rigid and offer strong back support. Equally, there should be sufficient space between the seats so that the user is comfortable during the whole duration they are using the seats. This will ensure that the users of the seats do not keep squeezing and brushing shoulders with their neighbors.
It is equally polite for the planners to provide an armrest so that the user can relax whilst using their seats. The seats should also have an item holder to hold refreshment bottles and cups. There should also be enough space for a footrest. The planners should have in mind the tall users who need slightly more space to rest their feet comfortably. The other thing that is always overlooked is the space between rows. If there is insufficient space between rows, the users will struggle to get to the main aisles during short breaks and restroom breaks.
There are many other details that may seem trivial yet they play a pivotal role in providing the comfort of the stadium seat user. Many logistics planners provide colors that match team colors to entice the fans of these teams. However, the color of a seat can affect the rate that the seat absorbs heat. Some color hues cause the seats to overheat especially when the user takes short breaks. The planners should, therefore, be keen on the coloring of the seats.
