Connect&GO enters strategic partnership with ASI


Amusement Services International LLC (ASI) is adding Connect&GO’s RFID solutions to its portfolio. The two companies signed an agreement earlier this year while attending the Dubai Entertainment Amusement & Leisure Exhibition (DEAL 2018). Connect&GO offers RFID solutions for access control, cashless payments and experiential activations designed specifically for the amusement park and leisure entertainment industry. ASI will help the Canadian company to expand its permanent installation business with major clients in the Middle East market. 

“We are very proud of our partnership with ASI. To have our solutions and our brand represented by such a major player in the region shows a huge vote of confidence in our products” says Anthony Palermo, CEO of Connect&GO.

Connect&GO’s RFID solutions for the leisure and entertainment industries include security features designed for families and children. From child-parent pairing, allergy alerts and instant messaging for parents if a child gets lost, Connect&GO solutions allow clients to offer their guests peace of mind.

ASI is very selective regarding the companies it represents and only works with the most innovative and promising market leaders. ASI executives were impressed with Connect&GO’s creative and effectual RFID solutions for the amusement and leisure industries. 

“We are indeed pleased to partner with Connect&GO to develop unique solutions for exclusive consumer experiences and thus increase secondary revenue streams for our customers. We have been on the lookout for a reliable RFID based technology partner who can enable us to deliver experiential features to any L&E facility from security & tracking solutions to driving footfall via event activations and cross promotions, scavenger hunts, enhanced redemption features, social media interaction, etc. In Connect&GO we have found a brilliant partner who has many innovative solutions that can be tailor-made to suit the needs of a specific operation” says Prakash Vivekanand, Managing Director of Amusement Services International LLC (ASI).

This partnership is part of a strategic move forward for Connect&GO. The industry leader is best known for its use of RFID technology at major events such as the Super Bowl and the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Connect&GO is now moving towards more permanent installation deployments and has already signed a major ski resort contract for the 2019 winter season. Connect&GO recently deployed its “Parkpass” connected-experience solution at multiple amusement parks including Six Flags (La Ronde) in Montreal, QC, Canobie Lake Park near Boston, MA and Jungle Island in Miami, FL.
