Intuit Dome, the future home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers, is one of the US’s most anticipated venue projects. Due to be opened in time for the 2024-25 season, the 18,000-cap arena is being designed around the fan experience – and we’ll delve deeper into exactly what that means during the A Frictionless Experience at Intuit Dome session at TheStadiumBusiness Summit 2023.
Presented by George Hanna, the Clippers’ chief technology and digital officer, and Aifi’s Rehman Mohammed, the session will explore the key role that tech will play in creating a unique fan experience at Intuit Dome: creating a frictionless experience that allows fans to get back into their seats quicker and so much more.
