  • Translucent fabric facilitates natural daytime light
  • Quick contract to installation turnaround time
  • Low bias cable grid system


  • Supply and install a large, cost-effective building in Paducah, KY.
  • Needed for the American Quilt Society expo within a tight construction timeline.


  • In just a few weeks, Arizon designed, manufactured and installed a 140’ wide by 270’ long climate controlled building with a 100% clear-span interior to accommodate vendors and spectators.
  • A skylight system that runs the length of the building lets natural lighting in during the day, reducing operating costs significantly.
  • A low bias cable design adds increased support to the dome to ensure the safety of the event’s guests.


  • Otherwise unable to provide enough open-span indoor event space to house 30,000+ vendors and spectators, the quick and cost-effective construction of Arizon’s air dome enabled the City of Paducah to host the American Quilt Society’s annual expo.
  • Without the availability of quick-to-construct, open-span dome technology provided by Arizon, the AQS annual expo may have had to host its event elsewhere.
  • The expo, which draws quilters from around the world, spans four full exposition days and has a $20 million impact on the local economy in Paducah, KY.
  • The dome was relocated to a new site a few blocks away in time for the 2016 expo.
