iXpole becomes ESSMA Stadium Partner

iXpole, the total solution for the full relational (CRM) and operational (ERP) management of sponsorship and VIP hospitality, has become an ESSMA Stadium Partner.

ESSMA unites more than 400 European clubs/stadiums, 20 leagues/federations and 80 corporates in the stadium industry. Built around three pillars, events, business intelligence and strategic support, the Association offers an inspirational range of events for members to connect, learn and evolve with other like-minded professionals.

ESSMA carefully collects a wide range of data from its vast stadium network. It provides members with up-to-date, easy to understand data, analysing actual stadium development projects. ESSMA conducts valuable reports to share best-practice guidelines and insights from its experienced membership-base.

iXpole joined the ESSMA as Corporate Partner in 2015 and has now decided to strengthen its ties with the organisation.

iXpole is a valuable asset to the ESSMA community. Thanks to their total solution for B2B, they can support ESSMA Stadium Members improving their customer journey. We look forward to working with them as Stadium Partner for the years to come.

Dimitri Huygen, Managing Director ESSMA

Thanks to iXpole, all B2B processes can be automated in order to optimise customer contacts and increase service levels of stadiums and sports organisations. The iXpole self-service VIP portal enables partners to manage their own electronic tickets so they can print, download, transmit and personalise them. In addition, partners can book or confirm catering options, order additional VIP services, manage contracts or e-invoices online

With clubs continuously increasing their focus on sponsorship and hospitality, becoming Stadium Partner is the next logical step in our relationship with ESSMA. ESSMA provides us a diverse network and useful insights in generic and overall trends. Our extensive experience in optimizing B2B operations, makes iXpole an ideal sparring partner for ESSMA members, who are concerned with the customer journey of their business partners, before, during or after matchday.
