Today, a strong WiFi connection is essential for every event, whatever the size, location and nature. WiFi previously did not rank highly on the priority list for event managers – 15 years ago, WiFi was considered a nice extra for events but not a necessity.
The modern world now relies on technology for everything, and events are no exception. To run successfully, almost every event needs a reliable internet network to power operations and enhance guest experience.
WiFi for event operations
WiFi is essential for events to run seamlessly. With cashless payments now the norm, your event will require a network that supports this. Other operations that require a strong connection include tills, payment systems, ticket scanners, production teams, security systems, live streaming, product demonstrations and VoIP systems.
During lockdowns, the importance of reliable WiFi was brought to the fore when people had no choice but to work from home. Those without a strong – or indeed any – connection were unable to work efficiently in an increasingly online world, and the same applies to events.
For the event to operate smoothly, staff and event holders require an infallible WiFi network tailored to large and high-density environments.
Permanent WiFi for venues
For permanent events venues, investing in cutting-edge WiFi infrastructure can help to outpace competitors and appeal to tech-based clients. For venues like this, a bespoke network using industry-leading technology will enable you to offer a strong connection for a myriad of uses, from concerts and live streaming events to conferences and TV production.

WiFi for guest use
Wherever your event is, guests will expect to have WiFi. Most people have multiple devices that they expect to work in any environment – for example, if you are hosting a business conference, guests will bring work laptops and tablets in addition to smartphones.
For large events, a dedicated high-density network is essential to ensure a strong connection across the site. When thousands of people come together, cellular connectivity often fails. A good, dedicated WiFi network is essential for keeping event attendees, staff and security connected on their phones alone.
WiFi is expected by guests even in remote locations, so you’ll need to deploy a specialist WiFi network using 4G, 5G or satellite technology to provide an internet connection for off-the-grid locations.
