Every convention center and meeting facility would like meeting planners to believe that the're “ready for anything”, but these days, any large event would be foolish to overlook the size of its bandwidth and cost.
The tidal wave of change for online services that connect attendees to conference material, each other and the outside world on multiple devices requires larger and larger amounts of capacity and this realization is pushing most meeting planners out of their comfort zones.
This is one area where calling the geeks in makes . Find an IT person who knows the technical questions to ask.
According to Ian Framson, CEO, Co-Founder of Tradeshow Internet, a company that teams up with facilities to boost capacity for events and/or provide meeting planners with a competitive alternative, there are a few steps planners should take first.1) Determine the scope of the event2) Determine the budget3) Remove any internet exclusivity clauses in your lease agreement
