After the event we caught up with Andre Leitáo, Business Development, Bosch Security Systems, proud sponsor of TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit (20-21 October), London.
Why did Bosch sponsor TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2015?
“Following previous experiences at TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit we really enjoyed it and I wanted to continue to expose Bosch to the industry and get far more involved. At the event I got to network with industry experts, suppliers and ultimately prospective customers. This was extremely beneficial for Bosch and has helped us learn and generate more opportunities in what is an exceptionally exciting period for Bosch.”
What have Bosch been working on in recent years?
“We have been working closely on engineering solutions with specific integrations for stadiums from certifying the bowl audio for evacuation according to EN 54 norms, ticketing, fan engagement and optimising operations and we are capable of tailoring individual requirements accordingly.”
How can Bosch help?
“We have a very broad range of security systems options which we have been successful with for a number of years, such as retractable roofing, security cameras including our newest Ultra High Definition range and not forgeting the audio solutions with our market leader brands Electro-Voice and Dynacord. The great benefit of working with us [Bosch] is it enables stadiums to get all the best technological solutions made specifically for this market, all from the same source, enabling venues to offer a unique family experience and opening up a wide-range of potential market opportunities.”
What’s happening in the coming years?
“Our main aim going forward is integrating and connecting everything digitally together! By doing this it will optimise energy consumption and facilitate much easier lifestyles for consumers.”
“So for example, a Bosch smart washing machine can be fully integrated with a dryer informing it of the size of the load and the subsequent setting the dryer needs to be on to get the job done.”
“But, for a stadium the possibilities are endless, ranging from ticketing, to fan engagement to the club shop and so on. It will be fully personalised and integrated to the specific customer.”
“This type of integration and connectivity is a revolution and we’re at the forefront of it. It’s an incredibly exciting time going forward.”
