Designed along the lines of the world's largest and most modern arenas, Rio Arena has consolidated its position as one of the most important venues for every kind of event. With the best acoustics in Latin America, it is one of the favorite places by major international stars due to its combination of comfort, convenience and quality.
Since 2007, managed by the Brazilian operation of GL events, one of the world's largest companies in the events industry, headquartered in France, Rio Arena has already played host to innumerable successful Brazilian and international artists, such as Paul McCartney, Roberto Carlos, Bob Dylan, Beyoncé, Eric Clapton, Sade, Lionel Richie, Maroon 5, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Bublé, Joe Cocker, Luan Santana and Amy Winehouse. In 2016, Lionel Richie and Iron Maiden also performed in the space.
With 10 ceiling beams that support up to 6 tons each, the 2,400 m2 space has versatility as one of its greatest advantages, and it offers the possibility to adjust the internal layout to the size of the event, due to its modular structure. Its operation, with retractable bleachers, offers dozens of layouts to organize events with audiences ranging between 300 and 18,000 people.
Among its facilities, there are corporate boxes, production support rooms, dressing rooms and an auditorium for press conference.
