Wi-Fi in Meeting Facilities: The Perceptions. The Reality. The Rights Questions to Ask.

Wi-Fi in Meeting Facilities:  The Perceptions. The Reality. The Rights Questions to Ask. | The Pharma meetings weekly buzz | Scoop.it

Now more than ever we are becoming a society, culture and industry that is becoming ever dependent on the almighty data or internet connection. You see it when you go to a fast food restaurant like McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A or Starbucks. We all are (or least I am) looking for the little arched symbol that signifies a glorious oasis of free wireless so I can give my mobile data consumption and charges a well-deserved break. As a society we are consuming data at an alarming rate and setting new data consumption records each year as more and more Smart devices get purchased. You might be asking what does this have to do with my conference budget…EVERYTHING!!!! The modern attendee expects their show organizers to provide Wi-Fi for them seeing how the places that provide free wireless for the customers is an ever growing list, and what is the attendee if they are not a customer of the conference. This expectation as you can imagine can and is presenting quite a challenge for the show organizer(s) and the hosting facility. How can you meet the attendee’s expectation without blowing the clients budget out of the water, or having to ask the facility to give something away that is undoubtedly a large profit center for them. The answer is education and communication from everybody to dispel the perception that all four sides has and to realizes the challenges each one face.

PERCEPTIONS

The attendee:

As mentioned earlier the attendee expects the show to have free wireless for their laptops, phones and tablets. Not only does the show need to offer this but it also needs to be fast, secure and most of all FREE. When the W-Fi connection at the show isn’t fast, secure and free the attendee starts thinking, “If I can go down the street and pull Wi-Fi from McDonald’s for free but not the show I am paying good money to attend that is a problem!”
