Orion Bets Big on Stadium-as-a-service
India, May 22, 2023; Orion Innovation (“Orion”), a leading digital transformation and product development services firm, will participate in the Global Sports Innovation Center (GSIC) Summit 2023, taking place in Madrid, Spain, on May 25-26. The GSIC Summit, powered by Microsoft, is an exclusive event for GSIC members, providing sports industry professionals with visibility across the sports sector. This year’s summit will focus on “Traditional sports, Esports & gaming innovation in the era of web 3.0.”
Sports is akin to a festival in India, the country has a very long sports history, with sports being a part of tradition, culture, finance (in terms of huge sponsorships and spends), and entertainment. It generates the highest television viewership, and has stadiums filled to capacity during international and Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. Stadiums play a pivotal role in any sporting event, as it can transform a simple game into an unforgettable spectacle. India’s Narendra Modi Stadium holds the pride of being one of the largest stadiums in the world. With increasing investments in sports infrastructure, India is angling towards becoming one of the global sporting hubs in the world.
Digital transformation is going to be the key ingredient for this, as data-driven solutions will simplify the management of conducting major leagues from VIP ticketing to performance tracking and help enrich the audience experience through interactive dashboards and detailed reporting.
Orion’s Stadium-as-a-Service solution enables stadium owners and operators to deliver a better fan experience before, during, and after the game. As a main sponsor, Orion’s team will participate in various discussions, showcasing their expertise and solutions in sports technology, fan engagement, and sports operations. Satish Kumar, Professional Sports, Entertainment, and Cloud and Infrastructure Services Leader at Orion, will deliver a keynote speech about the company’s latest Stadium-as-a-Service offering.
