A central stage is essential to ensuring that your audience is seeing all the action. A typical Esports event will feature a dozen or more competitors. You need a space where they can all be well-seen by the audience.
At Le Reve Theatre, their theater-in-the-round set-up offers a prime Esports experience. Most of the chairs in the 1,600 seat venue offer upholstered armrests and seat backs with strong lumbar support. Special VIP chairs are equipped with intermediate drink tables.
Keep sight lines in mind when designing the space. Often, there will be screens mounted up above the action. Seating that reclines easily allows the audience to watch the screens without having to crane their necks up to see.
And, of course, it is also imperative that every seat in the house have an excellent view. Esports fans are fanatical about their teams and individual stars, and are excited to see them in person. Choosing a staggered layout that gives everyone a good look at the action means that everyone has a great viewing experience. There are a number of seating arrangements that can help you achieve this goal.
Moveable seats, whether telescoping or another style, can help your facility meet the varied seating layouts required by different events. Our telescopic units come in a range of sizes to suit your needs and can be easily moved in and out as needed to get the right set up for every event.
Esports events also vary widely in size. National and international tournaments can attract thousands of viewers from near and far. The inaugural Fortnite World Championship was held in 2019 at Arthur Ashe Stadium, with over 20,000 attendees. If you are planning to add Esports programming, modular seating makes it easier to adapt to both small and large crowds.
The Dickies Arena is an example of a venue that adapts seamlessly from one event type to another throughout the year. At any given time, the venue may be hosting anything from concerts to basketball to hockey to rodeos. They keep on top of the changing requirements with a flexible floor plan that incorporates telescopic seating units. Components like dual rise platforms and portable low-rise platforms make adding and removing seating quick and simple.
