WiFi for Events

WiFi for Events

Love your venue but nervous about their WiFi network? Since 2008, Trade Show Internet has provided WiFi solutions for thousands of events. As an industry leader, we successfully petitioned the FCC to help protect consumer WiFi freedom of choice.

We offer scalable solutions to meet the WiFi requirements of any event. We rent plug and play WiFi hotspots for events with up to 100 attendees. If you are planning a larger event, Trade Show Internet can design and deploy a custom high-density wireless network. Our custom WiFi solutions are managed and monitored on-site by our team of network engineers. If your event is too important to risk WiFi network failure, Trade Show Internet is up to the challenge.

On-Site WiFi Services Include

  • High-density WiFi
  • Outdoor WiFi
  • WiFi Captive Portal and Splash Page
  • Channel planning for 2.4 and 5 GHz unlicensed networks
  • Interference and risk mitigation
  • Network monitoring and usage reports

WiFi Captive Portal and Branded Splash Page

Looking to sell WiFi network sponsorship? Our Captive Portal and Splash Page solutions let experiential marketers design their guest WiFi experience to achieve their specific brand engagement goals. Give your attendees free WiFi and event-specific content, while capturing valuable marketing data.

WiFi Hardware Agnostic

No two events are alike, and no two WiFi systems are created equal. We maintain an extensive inventory of WiFi hardware and software solutions from the leading manufacturers. We specify and install the appropriate gear to meet your coverage and capacity requirements.

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.
