European Championship to be shown at Grand Hôtel

UEFA EURO 2020 is about to begin and for the first time fans will have a chance to watch the games in the legendary Vinterträdgården at Grand Hôtel in Stockholm, as the venue transforms into a pop-up restaurant during the tournament. Creative Technology will, in addition to projecting the games on a 7 meter wide screen, also create a 360 degree audience projection on the walls to bring the right live feeling.

– It feels almost unreal that Grand Hôtel will have a sparkling football scene during the European Championship. We arrange all kinds of events in Vinterträdgården every year and it feels great that we can use the venue and perhaps above all, the technology installed, to show sports. It will be a really cool experience, says Pia Djupmark, CEO of Grand Hôtel.

From June 11, when the Championship begins, until the final day on July 11, Vinterträdgården will be transformed into an exciting football venue and the restaurant will offer a sports influenced menu. As Grand Hôtel’s largest event arena, Vinterträdgården is equipped with cutting edge AV technology which now for the first time will be used for sports. Creative Technology is the hotel’s technology partner, and will be projecting audiences imagery on all the walls to create a feeling of being in the center of events.

– We look forward to creating an awesome football experience for all guests using technology, says Jan Hedlund, project manager at Creative Technology.

During the tournament, the restaurant’s menu will be characterized by classics in combination with a couple of selected football dishes. To simplify the flow and maximize the guest experience, food is ordered to the tables with an app. There will be a limited number of seats available, and reservations are made via Grand Hotel’s website. All current restrictions and recommendations issued by the Public Health Agency will be followed.

Grand Hôtel will show selected matches of the European Championship. The venue will open one hour before game start.
