Global venue and event management company ASM Global announced, 26 July, a strategic alliance with Honeywell, a building management solutions company, with the stated intention of creating 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 programme for venue re-openings and operations. Honeywell will also create a custom, real-time Healthy Buildings dashboard for the VenueShield LIVE programme to help ASM’s facilities staff quickly identify and correct critical building controls issues. The agreement runs through 2027.
Honeywell will also 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, and more environmentally preferable products to help the venues’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
Ron Bension, ASM Global president and CEO, 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.”
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.
Doug Wright, president and CEO of Honeywell Building Technologies, concluded: “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.”
