PODCASTS: The Connections Between “Touchless” Technologies and Fan Data

Two episodes of the FanReach podcast recorded back-to-back bookend nicely two topics of paramount importance to the future of sports entertainment. In episode 7 we introduce you to “Radio Ren” a.k.a. Renier Steyn, Director of Axess America Events. Not only was Renier hilarious, but incredibly knowledgeable about the technology development of “touchless” and “cashless” technologies installed in sports venues around the world today. In episode 9, the FanReach podcast crew was joined by Fiona Green, author of the book Winning with Data for the Business of Sports: CRM and Analytics.

The theme revealed across these two conversations is how fundamental the importance of mobile devices are in the future of sports entertainment businesses. Not only do mobile devices provide a platform upon which we can entertain and inform fans, but there are wonderful opportunities to offer fans good value in exchange for information that will help our businesses understand what fans want, and how to best provide it for them. From gambling and gaming, to ticket upgrades, to touchless and cashless buying locations, to cutting-edge virtual reality experiences and much more – mobile devices are the key to opening up the future of sports entertainment growth.
