Arena Americas supported the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded, ill and injured Servicemen and women, held in May in Orlando, Fla. More than 500 military competitors from 15 nations participated in 10 sporting events.

The Oak Creek, Wis.-based company supplied rental equipment for the opening and closing ceremonies, track and field, and aquatics venues. For the event sponsor, Jaguar Land Rover, Arena supplied a 6-by-12-meter clearspan structure (pictured), hard wall, glass wall, doors, leveled BilJax® flooring with overdecking and premium carpet, ADA-compliant ramps and handrails, lighting and HVAC.

“The Invictus Games show the importance of healing through sport and highlight the tenacity and perseverance of these amazing Service members, and we couldn’t be more proud to have participated in this event,” says Jimmy Parks, vice president of Southeast Region for Arena Americas.
