Patriot One Technologies Selected to Secure All Entrances at OVG360’s New Acrisure Arena

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patriot One Technologies (TSX: PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRA: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”) today announced its SmartGateway patron screening solution was selected by the new Acrisure Arena in the greater Palm Springs area to secure entrances for hockey games, musical events and more.

Acrisure Arena is owned and operated by OVG360, a full-service venue management and hospitality division of Oak View Group that helps client-partners reimagine the sports, live entertainment, and convention industries. This is the same group that selected Patriot One for the Moody Center, in Austin, Texas and the Rupp Arena and Lexington Opera House, in Lexington, Ky.

“Bringing a brand-new arena to southern California is exciting, and we want to ensure our patrons, staff and others have a world-class experience - not just during the event, but as they are entering, too,” said Phillip Ransford, vice president of operations at Acrisure Arena. “We chose Patriot One’s SmartGateway for its modern, flexible technology, and because we were able to customize it to fit Acrisure’s unique brand. Our patrons and staff won’t have to worry about someone walking in with a weapon during events, which will allow them to enjoy their experience. OVG360 is proud to add another facility to our growing list of partnerships with Patriot One.”

SmartGateway is the latest iteration of Patriot One’s Gateway patron screening solution. The system was designed for large, ticketed venues to enable high throughput, but customizability based on the customer’s individual needs and security requirements.

“Technologically advanced arenas are looking for the most reliable, accurate and flexible physical security technology to protect patrons and staff, which is why they’re turning to Patriot One,” said Peter Evans, CEO of Patriot One. “Whether it’s setting up our system in a new destination like Acrisure Arena, or updating older, historic facilities with modern technology, SmartGateway is the right choice for either.”

Acrisure Arena, home of the Coachella Valley Firebirds hockey team, is set to open this December. It is situated in the Palm Springs area, and is designed specifically for hockey games and concerts, with seating for over 10,000 people.

OVG360 has a portfolio of more than 200 client partners spanning arenas, stadiums, convention centers, performing arts centers and more, providing a set of services, resources, and expertise designed to elevate every aspect of business that matters to venue operators. A partnership between Oak View Group and Patriot One was recently announced to introduce SmartGateway to multiple properties to enhance the customer experience and increase safety and security.
