ADDED-VALUE FOR THE ARENA
AccorHotels Arena will benefit from the innovative features and tools implemented on several points:
Editorial content is an important part of the application that allows Arena teams to highlight events, promotional offers or pop-up stores. Some of the application contents are also managed directly from the website contents to ease their management. Thus, the AccorHotels Arena’s marketing teams can offer promotional operations to their partners (highlighting, couponing …) to improve their impact and return on investment. This also contributes to orientate the strategy of AccorHotels Arena’s brand building.
The pre-arrival services (show ticket, parking space, meal) and interactive filterable map allow to relieve the pressure on the reception points within the arena and to optimize the flows by making visitors more autonomous. This also enrich the database and help to anticipate costs and to locate the points of friction.
