Our team at, led by CEO Mike Perrone, had the privilege of attending this event, and we are excited to share key takeaways and insights that will shape the future of our industry.


The Rise of Data-Driven Fan Engagement

One of the central themes of SEAT 2024 was the increasing importance of data in enhancing fan engagement. Several sessions focused on how sports and entertainment organizations are leveraging data analytics to deliver personalized experiences to fans. From tailored marketing campaigns to real-time engagement during events, data is becoming the cornerstone of fan-centric strategies. Our team was particularly inspired by the case studies showcasing successful implementations of data-driven fan engagement platforms.


Innovations in Wi-Fi Technology

As a company specializing in Wi-Fi marketing solutions, we were thrilled to see the advancements in Wi-Fi technology highlighted at the conference. With the proliferation of connected devices and the demand for seamless connectivity in venues, the latest innovations are set to revolutionize the fan experience. Enhanced Wi-Fi infrastructure, combined with advanced analytics, is enabling venue operators to understand fan behavior better and offer more personalized services. As Brian Fulmer of the Golden State Warriors highlighted, "We have an approximately 50% take rate on Wi-Fi," showcasing the significant engagement Wi-Fi can drive in large venues.


The Rise of Entertainment Districts: Extending Your Brand Beyond the Stadium

A significant trend discussed at SEAT 2024 was the rise of entertainment districts. These districts extend a brand’s reach beyond the stadium, improving the fan experience before and after the game with more options for dining, shopping, and entertainment. This not only captures more time and attention from the fan base but also provides large revenue opportunities, including media and paid sponsorships. Leveraging the brand outside the stadium allows for the building of community and engagement on non-game days through events and other activities.


Personalization for Visitors and Fans

Personalization has become an expectation among visitors and fans. SEAT 2024 emphasized that delivering personalized experiences generates more revenue but is challenging to achieve without quality  data signals. Not personalizing interactions can hurt both performance and fan satisfaction. Our team noted several discussions on best practices for harnessing data to create more meaningful, personalized interactions that enhance the overall fan experience.


The Future of In-Venue Marketing

In-venue marketing was another hot topic at SEAT 2024. Experts discussed how the integration of digital and physical experiences is transforming the way brands connect with fans. Interactive displays, augmented reality (AR), and mobile apps are just a few examples of technologies that are bridging the gap between the virtual and real worlds. These innovations are providing new opportunities for sponsors and advertisers to engage with audiences in more meaningful and impactful ways.


Building Smart Venues

The concept of smart venues was prominently featured at the conference. With the advent of IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence), venues are becoming more intelligent and responsive. Smart lighting, security systems, and climate control are enhancing the operational efficiency of venues while providing a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for fans. Our team took note of several cutting-edge solutions that could be integrated into our offerings to enhance venue management and fan satisfaction.


Looking Ahead

Attending SEAT 2024 was an enlightening experience for our team at The insights gained from the conference will undoubtedly influence our strategies and solutions moving forward. We are committed to staying at the forefront of industry trends and leveraging the latest technologies to enhance fan engagement and in-venue experiences.
