ASM Global, the world’s leading producer of entertainment experiences, has announced a strategic alliance with Honeywell, a leader in connected buildings, to help create smarter, safer and more sustainable venue operations and more enjoyable audience experiences across ASM’s international portfolio.
ASM Global will work with Honeywell to establish new standards related to indoor air quality, safety and regulatory compliance for its VenueShield LIVE proprietary program for venue re-openings and operations. Honeywell will consult with ASM on guidelines related to deploying healthy buildings technology including indoor air quality, safety and security, and personal protective equipment (PPE). Honeywell will also create a custom, real-time Healthy Buildings dashboard for the VenueShield LIVE program to help ASM’s facilities staff quickly identify and correct critical building controls issues. The agreement runs through 2027.
Improving the Guest Experience
Additionally, Honeywell will work with the ASM Global venue network to deploy a variety of technologies that support smarter, safer and more sustainable venues to improve the overall guest experience, including solutions to enhance overall building operations; mobile computing and data capture technologies to expedite ticketing, concessions and retail experiences; and more environmentally preferrable products to help the venues’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
ASM Global President and CEO Ron Bension said:
Aligning with Honeywell and its state-of-the-art technology will help ASM elevate even further what are already the world’s finest audience experiences at our venues.
Jeff Kimbell, Honeywell Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, said:
As vaccine programs progress around the world, the desire for normalcy continues to increase. Live events such as concerts, sports and conventions contribute greatly to the vigor and excitement of daily life. We look forward to working with the ASM Global team to not only help audiences feel more confident about coming to live events but also in supporting venue modernisation and digitisation by providing greater automation and insight into the portfolio performance and a more seamless audience experience.
VenueShield LIVE is deployed at more than 325 ASM Global facilities around the world, already providing high levels of cleanliness and safety, while inspiring consumer confidence, all in coordination with leading medical professionals, industry experts and public health officials.
Tom Lynch, Group Commercial Director & Senior Vice President, Europe, ASM Global, is one of 50+ industry experts that will be sharing insights and key learnings during the upcoming ALSD International conference and exhibition being hosted by Liverpool Football Club, September 6-7.
Doug Wright, President and CEO, Honeywell Building Technologies, said:
Producing premier entertainment events takes skilful coordination, and the building itself is a critical part of the equation. Our experience in building technologies, services and operations can provide additional value to the VenueShield LIVE offering. We are excited to work with the ASM Global team to support a safer return to live events and help its diverse network of venues drive critical outcomes to enhance audience experience, improve operations, and meet energy efficiency or safety goals.
Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions integrate air quality, safety and security technologies along with advanced analytics to improve indoor air quality, while meeting energy efficiency goals to create a more productive and better occupant experience.
ASM Global’s properties produce a vast array of events ranging from professional sports to family entertainment to conventions and premier concerts. More than 200 million people pass through its venue doors annually. The alliance with Honeywell was brokered by AEG Global Partnerships.
