Site Visit Invite - BYU 4th of July
We at BYU would like to invite you to join us for a wonderful event and experience you soon won't forget. Each year LaVell Edwards Stadium at BYU hosts the annual "Stadium of Fire" event. It is on and around the 4th of July. The theme is centered around the 4th of July, patriotism, and fun. This year’s program will be OneRepublic, one of the world’s most popular musical groups for more than a decade, will be the headliner at Stadium of Fire on July 4th, 2018, at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah! In addition to OneRepublic, guests will enjoy the beloved patriotic tributes and exciting thrill acts that Stadium of Fire is known for—as well as the largest stadium fireworks show in the nation!
We feel this would be a great opportunity for many to come see a stadium concessions operation in action with over 40,000 in attendance and at a time other than football season. We open over 50 locations with all types of food and vendors. Here is a link to a map which shows our 2017 offers. 2018 will be very similar. http://dining.byu.edu/concessions/documents/LVEStadiumConcessionsMap%202017.pdf. We open three sides of the stadium, north, east and west. The stage is set in the south end-zone. Here is a link to our concessions web site for additional info: http://dining.byu.edu/concessions/.
In connection with the event we will offer tours of facilities prior to the event as well as tours during our hours of operations. We also would like to have some time to hold a meeting in connection with the event. Depending on the wants, desires and needs of those who express interest in attending, we can do that on the day of the event, before event day or even after or some type of combination. Any meetings and meals associated with meetings would be provide free by BYU. This would also include attendance to the event and concessions at the event. It would also include family/friends you might choose to bring as well. The bottom line is if you can get here we will take care of you. We would love to have you join us for a great time to learn and celebrate what we do as collegiate concessionaires and our membership in the NACC.
