Addressing the Issue of WiFi at Events

Events are becoming ever more reliant on WiFi as mobile technology usage continues to grow. Event apps and social media messaging continue to drive traffic during events, increasing the need for fast, stable access to wireless networks. What can a planner do to ensure their event brings the best wireless connection available to their attendees?

It’s important to address the number of devices attendees can potentially bring to an event. Don’t assume attendees will only bring along one WiFi enabled device. Optimize the networking requirements to handle more than one WiFi mobile device per attendee.

Ensure that the venue offers enough bandwidth performance to handle the event. Make sure to test the bandwidth during site inspection. Planners can test the strength and performance of a wireless network by using a website such as Speedtest.net.


How do you ensure that your event has excellent WiFi?
