While having the internet at your event might once have simply been a nice option, it is now a complete necessity. Participants will need it for common things like browsing the internet and accessing email, and for mission critical applications like live streaming of events.
There will no doubt be a number of options available to you when you begin investigating internet for your event, not the least of which will be the technology offered by your venue itself. Unfortunately, while these might be the simplest solutions, they are often not the best option. The best is rental of temporary internet from Trade Show Internet.
