In partnership with ARAMARK, the arena’s exclusive food and beverage provider, The Q is introducing SmartTouch technology using Apple’s iPad™ into its 92 luxury suites to deliver guests a richer hospitality experience utilizing 100 percent wireless touch screens.

Home to the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers and AHL Lake Erie Monsters, Quicken Loans Arena is the first sports and entertainment facility in the country to debut the innovative SmartTouch technology that enables suite guests to order food and drinks, purchase merchandise, event tickets and more with a tap of a screen, all from the comfort of their suite.

“Our partnership with ARAMARK, to be the first to bring SmartTouch to our suite holders, reflects our focus to continue earning their support by providing the best service, fan experience, cutting-edge technology and facilities in all of sports and entertainment,” said Len Komoroski, president, Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena.

By integrating the latest wireless technology into the arena experience, Quicken Loans Arena and ARAMARK are creating an even more interactive, fan-friendly way for guests to enjoy sports and entertainment events. In addition to the convenience of being able to order food and beverage off the menu for delivery to the suite, SmartTouch features tabs designed specifically to enhance the service experience for Quicken Loans Arena suite holders. Those features include:

Merchandise – order team gear from the Cavaliers Team Shop

Event calendar – see what special, sporting and concert events are coming to The Q in future days, weeks and months

“Fans are accustomed to the conveniences of mobile and wireless technology and we’re continuously looking for ways to enhance and customize hospitality offerings through the use of new technology,” said Kelly Romano, ARAMARK general manager, Quicken Loans Arena. “We’re excited to work with the Cavaliers to introduce a new way for fans to experience events at The Q.”

SmartTouch’s plug-and-play technology is easy to manage and update and allows arena operators to mine for data letting them know in real time what information guests truly want and which offerings are selling best.
