Evolv Helps Improve Security at Bridgestone Arena and Ensures Fans Never Miss a Puck Drop
Locally dubbed as “the biggest honky-tonk on Broadway”, the Bridgestone Arena is at the very heart of the entertainment district in downtown Nashville. It is one of the busiest entertainment venues in the world, hosting home games for the NHL’s Nashville Predators, Broadway shows, virtually every form of musical performance, the CMA and CMT Awards, among others. On January 21st, 2023, the Nashville Predatorsscored2 goals within the first 40 seconds of their game against the L.A. Kings. Previously, a large number of fans would have been stuck outside Bridgestone Arena in long security lines and would have missed that extraordinary moment. However, because of Evolv, those same fans were able to witness an incredible first minute of a game, which the Predators went on to win 3-2. Through implementing Evolv Express, Bridgestone Arena was also able to:
- Screened thousands of fans and patrons in the 12-minute "rush" before start times
- Reduced security alarms for secondary screening by around 40%
- Increased the amount of time fans and guests spend in pre-game festivities and concessions
