The national stadium of New Zealand takes out international innovation award for its Staydium Glamping experience Eden Park having won an international award for ‘Product Innovation’ after defeating some big hitters in the American stadia industry.
Based in the UK, TheStadiumBusiness Awards recognizes innovation, leadership, and achievement in the operation, delivery, and management of globally leading sports facilities.
The largest stadium of Aotearoa was competing against global brands in the US including the Chase Center (home of the Golden State Warriors), the Staples Center (home of the Los Angeles Lakers), Levi’s Stadium (home of the San Francisco 49ers), and the Golden1 Center (home of the Sacremento Kings).
Staydium Glamping started in July of last year after the stadium identified spaces around the facility that could be used for new concepts. Located in the north-eastern corner of the 117-year-old stadium, two custom-designed domes overlook one of the most famous playing fields in the world.
Eden Park Chief Executive Officer Nick Sautner said that they are thrilled that Staydium Glamping has been recognized at the world level for the unbeatable accommodation experience it provides both local and international tourists.
In order to celebrate the win, Eden Park is providing special pricing of $199 each night and vouchers for future use.
The product attracted attention from both local and abroad tourism operators, demonstrating widespread interest in the experience. Given the growing reputation of the stadium for pioneering revenue streams, industry publications have closely followed updates which has cemented its growing position as a market leader.
An enviable view of the private bathrooms, hallowed turf, and premium finishings are some of the benefits that Staydium Glamping boasts to make sure guests not miss any of the action unfolding below them.
