Does anyone know how large event facility flooring systems are handled. IE: a facility that has rodeos, concerts, basketball, ice hockey etc.

Does the Owner purchase various moveable flooring systems, for each type of event? How is the ice floor installed for hockey or Ice Capades. If so, anyone know who manufacturer's them?

From limited experience and knowledge-- seems concrete floor slab is installed; then dirt added for rodeos, motorcyle/motorcross races, tractor pulls, circuses, etc.; floor is flooded with appropriate surrounding barriers/curb to form the ice hockey rink; basketball floor is a portable [floating]system [sometimes due to event timing, located on top of the hockey ice.; concerts, graduations, revivials, etc all held on the concrete floor slab itself.

Ralph Liebing is correct. However, the concrete floor may require several inserts to accommodate circus events. The ice is generally 1 inch thick and frozen by an in-slab system provided by specialty subcontractors. Accommodations for draining the floor when the ice melts, and for a Zamboni machine need to be considered. The hockey walls may serve as a curb for the ice containment. Robbins manufacturers removable wood floors
