Sponsor News: Stechert’s Smart Seating On Show At Design & Development Summit

Stechert is the latest industry supplier confirmed to exhibit at TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2013, in Nice (9-11 October).

Modern sports venues need attractive seating that are both pleasing to fans and cost effective for owners.

The Kango Smart from Stechert has been designed to combine modern aesthetics with high stability and optimum comfort. The seat has a unique design that fuses intelligent ergonomics with a patent-pending mechanism. The high-quality blow-moulded plastic forms part of the chair’s vandal-proof construction, while the seat has been engineered to comply with FIFA standards.

Safety and Comfort

Some 6,000 of Kango Smart seats recently made their debut at the newly built Weser-Ems-Halle multipurpose arena complex in Oldenburg, Germany.The main arena, which has a capacity of 7,500 visitors, is home to the EWE Baskets Oldenburg basketball team, who won the German League Championship in 2008/09. The ergonomic seating is enabling fans to watch their favourite team in their new home in comfort and safety.
