Festivals – Temporary Connected Villages
Today’s festivals operate as fully functional villages. And like a village, attendees expect the basic necessities to be up and running, be it restroom facilities, food and beverage tents, and WiFi. From the moment they set foot on site, festival goers want ticketing gates to move quickly, RFID/POS terminals to process their food and beverage transactions instantaneously, and the ability to share photos and videos in real time on social media. Of course vendors and production staff need a solid Internet network to effectively run the event. These critical event functions cannot be left to chance on oversubscribed and spotty cellular networks.
We work closely with festival producers to mitigate operational risk by controlling a single critical variable – the network infrastructure. Trade Show Internet’s on-site team will take responsibility for your Internet bandwidth circuits, wired network, and WiFi connectivity so that you can focus on executing the perfect festival. Our networks enable production staff, attendees, and vendors to use bandwidth-intensive technology including mobile apps, social media, live video streaming, ticket scanning, point-of-sale, email, gaming, virtual reality, and augmented reality at your indoor or outdoor festival venue.
Don’t let our name fool you. Since 2008, Trade Show Internet has perfected the process of building complex networks to serve the connectivity needs of outdoor festivals. No project is too unusual or challenging for us. We have designed custom networks for events at beaches, campgrounds, farms, parks, piers, and sporting arenas. If your festival takes place in a major metropolitan area or somewhere more remote, and network connectivity is mission critical, we can provide a solution to meet your needs and budget. If you can dream it, we can build a network for it!
In conjunction with providing Internet access, our WiFi Captive Portal and branded splash page solutions provide a valuable marketing opportunity for sponsors. You can design the festival attendee WiFi experience to achieve your sponsors’ brand marketing goals. Our software allows you to capture attendee contact and survey data, while sharing promotional content, songs, and videos during the attendee WiFi on-boarding process. Our flexible Captive Portal solution lets you offer a nearly endless variety of calls to action to connect festival sponsors to attendees.
Whatever your festival’s Internet requirements are, we’ll be there for you with best-in-class products, expert advice and support.
