Qudos Bank Arena, Australia’s largest indoor entertainment and sporting arena, situated within the Sydney Olympic Park Precinct, has partnered with Civiq to revolutionise the way concert-goers access drinking water. In an effort to reduce plastic waste and promote environmental consciousness, Civiq has installed two state-of-the-art premium drinking water stations in the arena’s main foyer.
Addressing the Challenge
As a prominent venue hosting numerous concerts, events, and conferences throughout the year, Qudos Bank Arena recognised the need to provide a reliable source of drinking water for its patrons. Prohibiting outside cans and bottles for safety reasons, the arena aimed to minimise plastic waste resulting from the purchase of bottled water within the facility.
