Arena Americas and PGA of America Extend Partnership Through 2030

Arena Americas, a leading provider of temporary and semi-permanent structures and event solutions, is proud to announce the extension of its partnership with the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) of America through 2030. This extension reflects the strong synergy cultivated between the companies since the inception of this partnership in 2017.

For more than six years, Arena Americas has consistently delivered top-tier event infrastructure for the PGA of America’s major championships, including the PGA Championship, the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, and the Ryder Cup, which occurs every four years in the U.S.

In 2021, Arena made history by being the first company ever to provide all flooring, seating, and tenting for the iconic Ryder Cup, which was held at the Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. The 2021 Ryder Cup included 1.2 million square feet of flooring, 650,000 square feet of tenting, and 8,500 seats. Enhancing the golf experience for players and spectators, Arena’s structures have become synonymous with quality and innovation at PGA of America events nationwide.

“We are honored to announce our continued partnership with the PGA of America,” said Jimmy Parks, President of Structures and Seating at Arena Americas. “This extension is a testament to the strength of our partnership, our commitment to excellence, and our dedication to mutual success. The PGA of America trusts us to deliver top-notch events on the world stage, and we are determined to meet and exceed their expectations.”

The PGA of America also expressed enthusiasm for the 6-year contract renewal, highlighting Arena Americas’ outstanding service and dedication to excellence.

“The PGA of America looks forward to continuing this partnership and relying on Arena’s knowledge and expertise,” said David Charles, Senior Director of Championships. “The reliability and excellence that Arena brings to each event, ensuring seamless operations and creating memorable moments, align with our mission to deliver exceptional experiences at our championships. Together, we will continue to raise the bar.”

At this year’s PGA Championship, which is taking place from May 13 through May 19 at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, Arena will supply hospitality structures, boasting over 725,000 square feet of flooring, 425,000 square feet of tenting, 3,500 seats, and a wide range of additional features. This contract renewal marks the ongoing success of our partnership, with both companies dedicated to excellence and growth.
