Baseball fans have eagerly been awaiting the debut season of the Wichita Wind Surge Double-A baseball team and a chance to see a game in the state-of-the-art Riverfront Stadium. But just as exciting for meeting planners, business owners and others looking for unique event space in Wichita, is that the $75 million stadium was built as a multi-purpose venue capable of hosting many other events besides baseball.
The new venue is on the west bank of the Arkansas River in downtown Wichita and has one of the best views of the city’s skyline from nearly every spot in the park. There are spaces for as few as 25 people for unique offsite meetings all the way up to large events using the entire facility. Riverfront Stadium can seat 6,500 in the seating bowl plus 3,500 more on berms and picnic areas for a baseball game. As many as 18,000 people can attend a concert or other event when the field is used for sitting or standing.
Wichita Wind Surge staff, who manage the operations of the stadium, know that having unique meeting spaces incorporated throughout Riverfront Stadium will draw everything from in-game group outings to standalone events such as board meetings, weddings and team building exercises. The Visit Wichita sales team is thrilled to have new inventory for meeting and event planners looking to book space in Wichita.
“Riverfront Stadium gives us additional hosting capacity for sports event planners considering Wichita for their events and it adds a new element for meeting and event planners shopping for potential host sites,” said Josh Howell, Vice President of Sports Development for Visit Wichita. “New facilities with flexible options, one of the best views in Wichita and the fun, vibrant Historic Delano District just outside the stadium allows event planners across industries to create unique experiences for their clients and attendees. Riverfront Stadium will help position Wichita as a must-visit Midwest destination to host successful events.”
The stadium has an in-house food and beverage team that offers upscale menu items in the suites and for special events at Riverfront Stadium.
