The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW is partnering with global technology advisory, investment and delivery company PMY Group (PMY). Both the entities have announced their first major technology investment and management partnership to give technological edge to the Sydney Showground Stadium.

As part of the association, a multimillion-dollar technology solution will be designed, funded and operated for the Sydney Showground Stadium by PMY. The technology solution will be extended to the arena’s show halls, plenary and conferencing facilities adjacent to it.

This world-class solution includes the following technologies – local area network; high density WiFi; digital screen solution; LED parapet signage (level 2); fan activation zones; and captive portal and data analytics platform.

GWS GIANTS and Sydney Thunder – key stadium tenants – are helping to develop the investment model. The main objective is to give fans a delightful experience and keep them engaged across the precinct.

Exulted PMY Group’s Managing Director, Paul Yeomans, “Our investment and management partnership represent a significant milestone for our business, and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with our long-term client RAS to enhance the technology infrastructure across the precinct.”

To catapult Sydney Showground Stadium to the top of the heap in terms of customer and operational experience, the technology partnership will see a continuing program of works over the term.

RAS’ Chief Operating Officer, Darryl Jeffrey, commented, “We are constantly focused on providing a world class experience at the Sydney Showground and are ecstatic to partner with PMY to further the digital and technology infrastructure and amenity at the site.”

GWS GIANTS and Sydney Thunder will play a proactive role in the project and are excited to further enhance their match day experience with the help of cutting-edge technologies.

GWS GIANTS Head of Commercial, Sam Attrill, remarked, “Through the use of smart technologies, digital media and enhanced partner integration, the new stadium solution will deliver an impactful and memorable match day experience for the GIANTS’ corporate, fan and member audiences. The GIANTS have welcomed the opportunity to work with global leaders in this space and look forward to bringing the platforms to life across the remainder of the 2019 AFL Season and beyond.”

Cricket NSW, General Manager of Commercial, Ben Hirschfeld, said he was pretty excited about the summer ahead, “The Sydney Showground Stadium is already one of the best places to watch T20 cricket. The new technology will take the fan experience to a new level, and the Sydney Thunder is excited to be part of it.”

A not-for-profit organization, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) encourages sustainable development and celebrates Australia’s achievements in agriculture.
