Have you ever attended a conference and failed to even get a basic Wi-Fi connection? Where too many users are sapping the venue’s bandwidth and the system can’t cope with the demand? It’s beyond frustrating. In today’s scenario, anyone attending a conference will expect to be instantly connected to the internet. A rock-solid internet connection is the essential prerequisite for effective remote working. Meetings require more and more bandwidth, and the demand for broadband will only continue to increase in the near future. Delegates today come to meetings with not just one, but often two or three devices that can devour your conference venue’s internet capacity quickly if the association haven’t adequately planned the infrastructure.
Ease of connectivity is a priority. But it’s important to know what attendees will be using the connectivity for in order to plan properly. If an association is organizing a big event it’s important to ask itself whether the Wi-Fi will be fast enough, and if it will support the number of users who are going to attend. Due to a variety of web demos, video streaming, crowd polling or video conferencing, attendees are demanding high speed internet access throughout the meeting. Therefore, it is essential to consider the sheer volume of internet-enabled devices connecting to the venue’s Wi-Fi connection at any given time. In conferences, speed is seen primarily as an asset in product development. Making sure the conference room, and the internet, is up to speed takes careful planning as well as a willingness to invest in future.
A top-quality Wi-Fi connection should be a seamless experience for all attendees. The internet has become a utility and modern user are increasingly demanding it. If a host venue has not thoroughly prepared, users may leave the conference frustrated and disappointed. In short, a poor Wi-Fi connection is bad for conferences. A successful business conference will have a super-fast Wi-Fi connection that corresponds with user’s demands. So next time when an association is planning to execute a meeting, make sure that the venue in which it is going to happen has the strength and capacity to have a high bandwidth of internet to give the attendees a great meeting experience.
