The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) has partnered with industry professionals to form the 2023 Sports and Entertainment Technology Alliance.
The Technology Alliance is a consortium of individuals and organizations committed to spectator safety and security excellence through innovation. Technology Alliance members work alongside practitioners and the NCS4 to explore how people, processes, and technologies can best contribute to safety and security challenges in a meaningful way.
The Technology Alliance provides a collaborative environment in which practitioners and solution providers can produce resources, support education programs, and contribute to research initiatives,” said Daniel Ward, MBA, CEM, NCS4 Director of Training and Exercise.
The 2023 Sports and Entertainment Technology Alliance members include safety and security practitioners and solution providers: Axis Communications, Esri, Microsoft, Nvidia, S2 Global, and Xtract One.
Tech Alliance members partner with the NCS4 to educate venue managers, operators, and stakeholders on the latest technological developments in an effort to close capability gaps. They also contribute to training and education initiatives, provide research input, and participate in industry engagement and outreach opportunities.
