The Experience

Tell us about your event and goals for it and we will customize a best in class solution that will take care of everything from determining the size and configuration of your rink, to custom branding with dasher board ads and embedded ice logos, lighting, seating, signage, skate aids, ice maintenance and best practices to ensure a fun and safe skating experience for your guests.

Other innovative ideas for use of our pop-up rinks include

  • Hotel activations to increase occupancy during the winter by adding a new amenity for guests.
  • Malls and new store openings – by installing an indoor or outdoor rink buzz to significantly increase foot traffic.
  • Charity events where a small fee may be charged to recoup the cost as well as generate donations.

Branding opportunities abound with custom ice logos and dasher board ads to assist in further promoting and exposing the brand as well as recoup costs.

“Gone are the days when you had to book the arena and go to the venue. Now you can create your own rink in any space, at any time and have your own personal rink maintenance crew at your disposal for your event”
Emir Ishmael, Operations Director at Center Ice Rinks.
