Central Hall Westminster raises the bar in Wi-Fi service
Central Hall Westminster is set to continue its commitment to first rate customer service by offering access to its state of the art Wi-Fi service completely free of charge to organisers, exhibitors, delegates and visitors.
The central London venue engaged leading industry internet professionals, MaxWifi, to install the latest Meraki equipment which offers connectivity to devices which communicate on both the 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz radio frequencies thus enabling end users to experience much better and consistent connectivity throughout its 22 meeting and events rooms.
Central Hall Westminster now offers:
- Free open access Wi-Fi to check emails and event content
- Available throughout the building
- High speed access
- Secure & bespoke options available for events
- In-house IT support and management
Central Hall says it has embraced the white paper launched by the British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) which aims to put an end to Wi-Fi fees for delegates by encouraging venues to offer free access. As Central Hall Westminster believes Wi-Fi provision to be a key service requirement, the venue took the competitive move and offers free access to all stakeholders.
“A historic venue at the forefront of modern technology Central Hall’s Managing Director, Paul Southern, is excited that such a historic building as Central Hall is at the forefront of modern technology.
“There can be absolutely no compromise when it comes to internet technology; most attendees to the exhibitions have either two or three devices each all of which need Wi-Fi connection and we can now offer free Wi-Fi to delegates at a basic connection rate. With also the option for clients to broadcast their own SSID and have customised advertising splash pages we are able to fully cater to all client requirements.”
“I am delighted that we have taken this step. The new systems can only lead to further event technology advances which Central Hall Westminster is now fully prepared for,’’ commented Kim Carrington, IT Manager at Central Hall Westminster.
