MONTREAL, July 2, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Dominic Gagnon and Anthony Palermo, cofounders of Connect&Go, a company based in Montreal, Quebec, have just been recognized among "the most innovative event professionals" by BizBash, the leading trade media for event professionals in the United States. Gagnon and Palermo won this honour alongside other individuals working at Walt Disney Studios, Target, SAP, etc.
Connect&Go has distinguished itself thanks to its RFID solutions, with which the company has activated over a million bracelets worldwide at festivals such as Osheaga, We Day, Heavy Mtl, Tales of the Cocktail, the Nashville Oktoberfest, etc. This recognition was awarded to the two entrepreneurs "for their ability to spark change in the ever-evolving world of events and meetings", says Anna Sekula, BizBash editor in chief. This distinction confirms the innovative character of Connect&Go's hard work, which results in flexible, accessible and safe products.
Several companies and festivals, such as C2 Montreal, Evenko, Bell Media, Telus, Labatt, Quebecor, Just for Laughs and Lolë - to name but a few - have called upon the creativity of the two cofounders and their growing team to offer unique experiences to their customers and festivalgoers.

Thanks to its technology, Connect&Go has transformed the customer's experience with its "cashless" offer. With it, festival and event attendees do not have to carry money on them since every single transaction goes through the RFID wristband they wear. They need only connect their credit card information or make a pre-authorized payment and voila. Festival-goers will be able to try this efficient and safe system during the Ile Soniq festival. But in the meantime, here is another example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=19&v=2iuc2KTnvNA
