Why is event WiFi so important?

Guest expectation

Most guests now expect to have access to fast and reliable WiFi and having a near-constant access to the internet feels like the new normal. For attendees, being able to access their social media and update their profiles in real-time is also an expectation as they wish to stay in touch with their friends and followings.

Creating a ‘buzz’

Any event can only go so far without WiFi and guests won’t necessarily want to use their own monthly allowance of data that they’ve paid for. When it’s provided, it allows your event to gain better press and traction online, especially if you have advertised specific hashtags. In this way, your business reach grows and opens you up to engaging with even more people.

Live streaming

Streaming events, live blogging and updating Facebook stories is now very common for brands and again, furthers the potential reach and engagement of an event. If your event is the launch of a new service, a sporting event, or anything time sensitive, live streaming is ideal. These recordings can also be utilised after the event in video promos and other marketing material.

What can you expect?

We offer impeccable technical setup and fast, reliable performance. Once you choose us and we have crafted a bespoke solution to meet your requirements, we will install all equipment at the site in advance and test its performance, ensuring there are no issues while the event occurs.

Due to our technology and experience, we can cater to the number of guests you estimate and the number of devices which may try to access the network at the same time. This pre-emptive approach will prevent slow or patchy WiFi from congested lines.
