The Arena in Los Angeles, California (US), home of the National Basketball Association (NBA) team Los Angeles Lakers as well as the National Hockey League (NHL) team Los Angeles Kings, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) team Los Angeles Sparks, and the NBA team Los Angeles Clippers, has selected the global event and venue planning software company OnePlan as its partner in order to help them host their 230 annual events.

‘LAKERS NATION’ stated that San Diego, California (US)-based OnePlan is the world’s leading event and venue planning software company. They are a supplier for some of the world’s biggest sports organizations including the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris and the Formula 1 British Grand Prix circuit (the 160,000-capacity Silverstone Circuit in England, UK).

The 20,000-capacity Arena is a multipurpose indoor arena in Downtown Los Angeles (US). The main attraction of the L.A. Live development (an entertainment complex in the South Park District of Downtown Los Angeles), it is located next to the 39,000-capacity Los Angeles Convention Center complex along the Figueroa Street.

The 2024 Summer Olympics, and commonly known as Paris 2024, is an upcoming international multisport event that is scheduled to take place from July 26th-August 11th, 2024 with Paris as its main Host City and 16 Cities spread across metropolitan France and one in Tahiti – an island within the French overseas country and the overseas collectivity of French Polynesia – as a subsite.

‘LAKERS NATION’ further stated that the partnership with the Arena includes the creation of a 3D digital twin of the iconic arena using the software company’s Venue Twin technology. This interactive platform is fully interoperable with the 2D GIS mapping view and will allow the arena’s production team to rapidly customize the arena for every event it hosts as well as collaborate with tenants, promoters and stakeholders in realtime to produce comprehensive event plans.

Venue Twin is part of the OnePlan platform, meaning it seamlessly integrates with any of the existing 2D, satellite and computer-aided design (CAD) plans. It puts all operational planning under one roof and gives one the ability to be interactive anywhere inside the venue.

This will also have a big impact on the security of the arena. The use of the software’s 2D and 3D toolset will allow the Arena security team to precisely plan the positioning of security staff and technology across the property. The platform will also function as a single source of truth for event organizers, giving the entire team a better insight of what is needed throughout the building and where.

Lee Zeidman, the President of Arena, the 7,100-capacity Peacock Theater and L.A. Live, expressed his excitement on the new partnership with OnePlan – “We are incredibly excited to partner with OnePlan and implement their technology into our day-to-day workflow. Our team is looking forward to utilizing OnePlan from production to guest services and security, to booking and marketing and operations, allowing us to be more efficient and provide our tenants, promoters and future events with a new level of world-class service that we pride ourselves on.”

OnePlan is already used by over 25,000 events and venues across the world in 110 countries and their founder and head honcho Paul Foster is excited for the Arena to join the family.

Said Foster, “We’re delighted to be working with one of the world’s most iconic venues that host over 230 events per year. It’s further evidence of how OnePlan can provide major time- and cost-saving efficiencies for venues of any size, as well as helping to bring in further commercial partners by using it as a sales and marketing tool.”

Paul Foster, CEO and Founder, OnePlan, UK, is a Member of Coliseum – Global Sports Venue Alliance.

In addition to the security benefits, OnePlan will also assist the arena’s Booking and Marketing Departments by enabling them to visualize and customize the arena for future events.
