Case Study Vail
Date: March 11, 2015
Only second to the Olympics, the World Championships is the largest gathering of ski racers in the world. As a result, organizers needed to set up a temporary facility to accommodate the countless TV and radio broadcasters scheduled to cover the races. The facility, known as The International Broadcast Center, was constructed out of shipping containers-one per country. Broadcast and film-editing services were performed there nearly 24/7 during the two weeks of racing. Located on the very edge of the ski course was another temporary facility for platinum ticket holders. Its walls were made of glass, allowing spectators to watch the races right outside the windows.
