NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – As sports and entertainment venues worldwide begin to return to live events at full capacities, fans can expect a new era of boosted streaming capacities and dynamic digital engagement experiences thanks to an innovative new partnership announced today by ASM Global and Mobilitie.
"ASM Global creates memorable live events every night worldwide and we are committed to providing our fans with the ability to share their incredible experiences seamlessly in real-time," said ASM Global President and CEO Ron Bension. "This extension of our partnership with Mobilitie will help fuel our creativity to envision and implement reimagined in-venue experiences."
The multi-year agreement, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, will allow ASM Global, the world's leading producer of entertainment experiences, to super-charge its vast international venue network with advanced 5G connectivity solutions from Mobilitie, the country's largest privately-held wireless infrastructure firm.
