June 11, 2020 – Montreal, Quebec – Connect&GO is proud to announce a new strategic agreement that will allow the Montreal-based company to take over the experiential division of My Check Experience (MCE) in Europe.
Known as a leader in the connected experience field, the MCE team has deployed numerous projects since 2011 for major clients such as FFT for Rolland Garos’ RG Lab, the Audi E-Tron launch, the Unicredit Champions League Trophy Tour for UEFA as well as SFR, Renault, L’Oréal, EDF, Suez, Samsung, Amazon and other prestigious brands. The company has also deployed millions of connected RFID wristbands in the last few years.
“This partnership with Connect&GO will allow My Check Experience to fully develop its new connected lockers market. We have known the Connect&GO team for a long time, and our companies share many similarities in terms of products and vision as well as flow management and response to the current changes we are experiencing,” says Cyril Huet, CEO of My Check Experience.
With this new partnership, Connect&GO’s innovative products will be available to MCE clients. The tech company’s newest series of solutions for post-COVID-19 business includes virtual queueing and a new generation cashless payment system. Recognized by the American magazine BizBash as one of the 15 most innovative experiential companies in the world, and having deployed more than 11 million connected wristbands at events such as the Super Bowl, the Olympics, Bundesliga, Nerf and many others, this partnership marks an exciting opportunity for the company’s growth in Europe, where Connect&GO has already been operational for a little over a year.
“We are eager to develop our business in Europe – both our sport and entertainment division, that works mostly with festivals, brands and agencies, and our permanent installation division, that deploys our technology at amusement parks and tourism/leisure attractions around the world. This strategic partnership will give us access to new clients and will allow us to reinforce our presence within the European market,” says Dominic Gagnon, CEO of Connect&GO.
The two companies have settled upon a second partnership that will allow Connect&GO to provide its technology for MCE connected lockers. “We have developed an expertise in connected lockers that can be customized according to the needs and resources of our clients. We already deploy our lockers in many countries around the world, and we would like to focus our energy on growing this aspect of our business; this partnership with Connect&GO, and their innovative vision, will allow us to do that,” adds Cyril Huet, CEO of MCE.
