Vodafone has today unveiled a new partnership with The SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow in a further commitment to the region. The SSE Hydro Arena is Scotland’s largest entertainment venue hosting around 150 music, sporting and entertainment events every year and with a capacity of 14,300.
Under the agreement, Vodafone will have access to a new on site super-suite, which will be available to customers and guests during live events; and will be used for branded experiences and to showcase the latest technologies such as 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). Set to open in spring 2020, Vodafone customers will also have the opportunity to win tickets to flagship events at the arena via Vodafone’s VeryMe loyalty app.
Vodafone already has a significant presence in Glasgow, with ten retail stores across the city. Glasgow was one of the first cities where Vodafone launched its 5G network in 2019; and a partnership with Glasgow University ensured it was the first educational institution in Scotland with a 5G network. 5G will support the adoption of a range of new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, connected cities and self-driving vehicles with many industries – including automotive, financial services, entertainment and healthcare – set to benefit.
