F1 Consultancy were recently contracted to supply an Internet connectivity solution for a one day event in Europe


The venue the client had chosen was the very trendy Magna Pars Suites Hotel in the heart of fashionable Milan. The building had been the site of an old perfume factory once owned by the Martone family of perfumiers and whilst it benefitted from a spectacular architectural facelift, the building was located in the old part of Milan and did not support the most modern of communications platforms, only receiving limited Internet connectivity.

Premier events such as these are marked by an increasing demand for high performance wireless. In addition to a client’s own event requirements for showcasing products and services, often high numbers of attendees use a wide range of devices, all need to go online at once.

This event was designed to provide a high tech demonstration of mobile phone apps and subsequent interaction with additional online sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Therefore the client would require reliable Internet connectivity with high up and download speeds for the actual demonstrations (often with 50 online connections running at a time), as well as for delegates to utilise their own devices during the breakout sessions. Given the existing technology infrastructure at the venue, there was clearly a requirement for a robust yet quick to deploy solution.
