The interview topics include:

  • What is the current state of demand for sports venue construction and renovation, and where is that demand coming from primarily?
  • What kinds of amenities are now “must haves” in sports venues?
  • Why is “desired atmosphere” rather than fan experience the first thing clients ask about?
  • What factors are determining whether sports venues are enclosed or open, and which preference is Turner getting greater demand for?
  • More sports stadia and arenas are being built as part of larger entertainment districts. Is Turner seeing this as a trend?
  • To what extent is Turner seeing demand for e-sports venues?
  • Will sports betting soon take place within sports venues?
  • What technology we'll see in future stadiums to attract younger viewers – and the associated cost/revenue considerations
