Oracle Arena, the home of the Golden State Warriors, played host to the NBA Finals in Oakland, California in the summer of 2013. Approximately 20,000 fans packed into the sold out arena to watch the Warriors take on the Cavaliers for the national title and many of the fans with tickets in the lower bowl sat on equipment custom designed and manufactured by Staging Concepts.
Oracle Arena had the lowest capacity of the three California NBA arenas in 1996 when they began a renovation, adding nearly 5,000 seats to become the largest NBA arena in the state. Staging Concepts participated by designing the Warriors a flexible seating riser system that maximized their capacity within the existing space, adding seats and configuration possibilities for concerts and hockey games. One of the challenges in the renovation was using the existing storage areas to store the additional equipment when not in use, which ultimately required custom carts with the capability of storing multiple tiers high.
Staging Concepts went back to Oracle arena in 2013 to redesign the lower bowl as part of a project to enhance the VIP fan experience.
