Orange County Convention Center (OCCC)

Does the Orange County Convention Center have free WiFi?

Yes, the Orange County Convention Center has “free” WiFi available, but only in certain areas. For casual WiFi connectivity, the convention center’s free network (768Kbps up/down speed per user) is available to use in the common areas and lobbies, but that coverage does not extend into the exhibit hall. Additional wireless service is available in the convention center’s meeting rooms and exhibit halls for a high price.

How much does the WiFi Internet connection cost per day at the Orange County Convention Center?

Pricing for exhibitor WiFi/Internet at the Orange County Convention Center may be more than you’d expect, particularly for dedicated Internet coverage services. It may cost as much as $5,244 for a 3Mbps dedicated Internet solution.

Fortunately, third-party Internet/WiFi providers like Trade Show Internet can net you significant savings (and streamlined ordering) compared to the “preferred” in-house provider, SmartCity Networks, which charges higher rates because it is forced to share a portion of its revenue with the venue. As a result, many people depend on Internet solutions providers like Trade Show Internet for access to reliable, fast Internet.

We offer Orange County 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 five devices.

Our pricing is significantly more cost-effective than the prices charged by OCCC’s in-house provider, whose rates start at $1,095 for shared-bandwidth premium Internet services. What’s more, for each additional device connecting to their premium Internet service, the rate is increased by $150. Further, in order to upgrade to a public IP address, you will be charged no less than $199.

If you’re not interested in taking a gamble on how much data you’re actually going to receive, you'll need dedicated bandwidth. At the Orange County Convention Center, dedicated Internet packages for exhibitors range from $3,495 for a basic 3Mbps connection to $7,850 for a 10Mbps connection. Upgrading to 29 public static IP addresses for a dedicated Internet service will cost an additional $995 - and all of these prices are at the “Incentive” pricing, necessetating “payment 21 days prior to 1st day of show move-in”.

Furthermore, the cost of a switch (limited to 24 ports) is $225. If you require labor/floor work to install your network, be ready to pay $125 per hour.
