Internet Landscape at Hotels and Convention Centers

Negotiating the Internet Landscape at Hotels and Convention Centers

The US government has spoken and laws have been passed to give you freedom of choice when it comes to event WiFi and connectivity solutions. As an event planner leasing meeting space in a hotel or convention center, there are a number of things to consider. Does your venue have an “exclusive” Internet/WiFi vendor? Is that existing vendor going to be able to provide you with the quality of service your event needs? If not, how can you bring in a third party event WiFi/Internet vendor such as Trade Show Internet? If you plan to order Internet or telecommunications services for your event, it is critical to understand the underlying business model in play. Knowing the ins and outs of how your venue does business can work to your advantage when negotiating the landscape and whether bringing in a third party vendor is necessary and feasible. This will ultimately result in the best possible service and price. We go through all of these difficult-to-navigate issues in our free white paper.
