Yes, the Las Vegas Convention Center WiFi is “free”, but, for most shows, their free service is limited to the lobby and registration areas. By contrast, the price for an Internet solution offering reliable bandwidth and connectivity on the trade show floor is very high.
Pricing for exhibitor WiFi/Internet at the Las Vegas Convention Center is on a per event basis rather than a per day basis.
Third party providers of Internet/WiFi, like Trade Show Internet, are able to offer significant savings (and streamlined ordering) when compared to the “preferred”, in-house provider. This is because the in-house provider is forced to share a portion of its revenues with the venue. As a result, many people depend on WiFi providers like Trade Show Internet for access to reliable, fast Internet. We offer Las Vegas Convention Center exhibitors a wide range of event Internet rental solutions at varying rates to fit a multitude of connectivity needs, starting at $599 for WiFi supporting up to four devices.
According to Cox Business’ website, shared bandwidth with speeds up to 3 Mbps is $745, but this is just for your first device. Each additional device (IP address) will cost $164 and this package is limited to three devices. If you need to connect more than three devices, you will need to upgrade from the “Business Starter” to the “Business Select” plan, which provides speeds up to 10 Mbps and costs $995 for your first device.
But what exactly is “shared bandwidth”? Just like any other shared resource, shared bandwidth is bandwidth that is provided to a group of users. If the number of users in the group is small and their usage is light, then the expected speeds should be close to the advertised “up to” speeds. If, however, the number of users that are sharing the connection is large and/or the usage on the shared connection is heavy, than actual speeds may be significantly less than the advertised “up to” speeds. Unfortunately, you don’t have any control over who else is on the shared network with you and how much data they will be using at any given time.
If you are not interested in taking a gamble on how much data you’re actually going to receive, you will require dedicated bandwidth. At the Las Vegas Convention Center, dedicated internet packages for exhibitors provided by Cox Business range between $3,500 for a basic 3 Mbps connection to $60,000 for a 200 Mbps connection. Custom Internet packages are also on offer at a personalized rate for exhibitors with higher bandwidth requirements. Even with these hefty price tags, these services only come with 3 IP addresses (i.e. – can only be used by three devices) and each additional IP address costs $164.
Instead of shelling out for the unreasonable price of Las Vegas Convention Center Internet, you can upgrade your event experience with our 4G Internet Kit and 4G Mega Internet Kits, which deliver temporary Internet service to meet any need. These WiFi hotspot rentals offer cellular-based connectivity capable of supporting up to 300 devices and allow you to set up a fast, reliable network inside your booth for a fraction of the cost of getting a “hard-wired” connection from the venue. Further, your network will be completely independent of the venue’s network and fully endorsed by the FCC, so you can stay connected with confidence and don’t need to worry about your network being blocked, jammed or illegally interfered with in any way.
If instead of exhibiting you are hosting a large event at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Trade Show Internet can provide a powerful Internet connection via our Fiber Optic Bandwidth package. It’s significantly less expensive than bandwidth provided by the in-house Las Vegas Convention Center for identical connection speeds.
Once our team knows your event requirements (such as the number of vendors, the dates that the event will take place, area to be covered, and so on), we can offer competitive pricing for various Internet speeds with the following benefits:
