ASM Global and Honeywell have entered a strategic alliance to help build “smarter, safer and more sustainable venue operations and more enjoyable audience experiences” across ASM’s global portfolio of buildings, and establish new standards related to indoor health including air quality, safety and regulatory compliance for its VenueShield LIVE program.

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.
ASM Global and Honeywell will work 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 preferable products to help the venues’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint.
Ron Bension, ASM Global president and chief executive officer, said of the deal, “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, added, “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 modernization and digitization by providing greater automation and insight into the portfolio performance and a more seamless audience experience.”
