Imago Venues upgrades its Wi-Fi network to a mega-fast 1Gbps

27 Sep 2019

Is this the fastest Wi-Fi network of any UK Conference Centre?

Imago Venues now offers one of the fastest free dedicated internet solutions available at any conference centre in the UK, having just upgraded its Wi-Fi network to a mega-fast 1Gbps.

Perhaps more importantly, this super-fast connection has been tested to over 2000 simultaneous device connections without any service interruption.

Many hotels and conference centre networks struggle to handle the necessary number of connections at any one time and the bandwidth for the network is often not even enough for people who are simply uploading and downloading data.

"We know from our research that over 85% of venue bookers look for sufficient bandwidth in Wi-Fi to be able to access information quickly and effectively. Technology should not be a blocker in any way to our delegates and this upgrade allows them to concentrate on the things that matter, rather than having the frustration of the tech not working. It's just one of the ways that we are providing better experiences for our customers!"

Rob Chamberlain, Marketing Manager, Imago Venues.

This new capability gives organisers the ability:

  • To quickly access and download large data
  • Run events that require access to online portals
  • Stream presentations live
  • Reduce the need for printed materials
  • Cast content from bedroom TVs on to personal devices
  • Access personal apps and streaming services.

With an easy self-registration login process and dedication conference technicians, it's never been easier to keep better connected during your conference.
