Why Internet Connectivity is Key For Events
Connectivity Needs for Events
There are many reasons temporary events often need internet service. This is especially true for ticketed events. The entertainment industry is rapidly moving away from physical tickets for events to digital ticketing. This trend was only increased by the impact of COVID-19 on the world. With events going paperless, ticketing is often on smartphones utilizing QR codes and other digital ticketing technology. To process these tickets, you need internet connectivity. Furthermore, the technology to process these tickets cannot rely on a best effort 4G LTE solution or no access at all. This is particularly true at events where there are large crowds crowing the nearby 4G LTE tower’s service resulting in poor service.
Temporary events from concerts to festivals and beyond are almost always using outside vendors for drinks and food, or merchandise to provide a great experience for their attendees. This reveals another need for internet at temporary events. This is to supply internet for vendor’s point of service (PoS) machines. These vendors typically use PoS machines to conduct their business in the best possible way for the event environment. These PoS systems require internet access to process credit card transactions quickly making a dedicated service for vendors mission critical to provide the best customer experience for both your vendors and the attendees. With events rapidly going paperless, PoS machines are a must for any vendor at an event.
When it comes to live music specifically, there are often additional connectivity needs backstage that don’t exist for other live events. Whether it be for livestreams, or to run equipment backstage it’s important for concert crew to have a reliable source of internet to ensure the concert goes off without a hitch.
