Event IT / Network Engineering


Trade Show Internet specializes in building custom IT infrastructure solutions at outdoor events and unique venues all across the U.S. We deploy networks in parks, parking lots, tents, stadiums, airport hangars, warehouses, movie theaters, restaurants, nightclubs, and museums. We also work with customers looking for a higher quality solution at traditional hotels and convention centers vs. the one-size-fits-all typical offering.

We are well versed in both the event world and the IT world. Our firsthand knowledge and expertise will guide you through the minefield of rapidly changing technology, help to recommend new technologies that align with your objectives, and satisfy your diverse event IT requirements.

Since 2008, we’ve deployed networks at thousands of events. Trade Show Internet is an industry leader and our infrastructure solutions are managed and monitored on-site by our team of network engineers.

What to Know Before You Go

We require venue permission to install our network infrastructure and WiFi gear. Most venue managers are cooperative and simply require our Certificate of Insurance, which is available upon request.

However, if your event takes place in a hotel or convention center, and you are looking to circumvent the in-house ISP, things can be a lot more challenging. You must negotiate the right to bring in your own vendor before you sign your venue lease agreement. By removing Internet/telecommunications exclusivity clauses, you can gain valuable negotiating leverage and tilt the balance of power in your own favor. To further reduce Internet costs, you should request a list of all associated venue fees in advance. Many of these fees are negotiable, including electrical, MDF/IDF closet access, fiber cross-connect, copper cross-connect, port access, patch panel, Ethernet drop, roof access, gear storage, and labor supervision. Don’t know what some of these things are? No problem, we can help guide you through the process.
