The Alerus Center
The Alerus Center is an indoor arena and convention center located in Grand Forks, ND. The facility is owned and operated by the city of Grand Forks and opened on February 10, 2001. The arena’s major tenant is the University of North Dakota football team. The arena also plays host to many large concerts, sporting events, and trade shows.
The convention center section of the facility includes a 26,000-square-foot ballroom and 12 meeting rooms. The convention center is used for conferences, seminars, banquets, parties, and smaller concerts.
When the existing flex neon failed the lighting service company turned to Wiedamark for a reliable and advanced solution. Wiedamark supplied the lighting company with a silicon digital flex neon product which offers both a longer life for the extreme weather conditions of the north as well as the advanced ability to display digital light shows.
The exterior of the Alerus Center now features two 330’ long flex neon accent lighting strips on both the east and west sides of the building. The added feature of the digital functionality of the lighting gave the facility the flexibility to display different lighting schemes that help communicate to the public the events happening within the facility.
