Trimming Wi-Fi Costs for 2015



It’s no secret to event planners or anyone else that we live in a digital world. This is a way of life that will only strengthen as we go farther in 2015. The common thread with all of our tech toys is the need to be connected to the masses via the internet. This makes Wi-Fi access a must for any event or meeting. Convene recently released a short article detailing ways event planners can cut back on Wi-Fi costs. Our favorite tips are:

Develop a history of how your events typically use Internet services: Have an estimate of peak bandwidth usage and peak number of wireless devices connected so that you don’t overpay. 

Don’t be afraid to ask your potential venue questions: Know what you’re working with by asking important questions, such as who their internet service provider is and how much bandwidth the space has.

Consider outside bids for Wi-Fi service: If you don’t think your venue can handle your Wi-Fi needs or if you simply want a better price point don’t be afraid to consider outside vendors.
