The Smart Group, which manages events space Battersea Evolution, has announced that it is partnering with event technology provider Etherlive to deliver wireless solutions across the South London site.
The partnership will see the provision of an on-site high density Wi-Fi network which will offer clients up to 100MB wireless network capability across the venue, with 3MB included for free within the event rate.
Bespoke services will also be available, including:
- Customised segregated networks
- People counting analytics
- Connectivity for Chip and Pin terminals
- Customised splash pages, with data capture tools
The agreement falls under Etherlive’s ‘Preferred Partner Programme’ and will also mean Battersea Evolution’s in-house team will be trained to become fully conversant with today’s technological requirements for meetings and events when dealing with clients and sales leads.
Paul Vesper (pictured), COO of Smart Group said: “The partnership with Etherlive reinforces our commitment to providing our best with the highest standards of service across the board. We recognise that technology is an increasingly integral factor when corporate buyers and event managers are looking at potential venues, so the need to have a strong network is vital as well as a team who are completely tech-literate when it comes to securing new business.”
Alan Jaramillo, business development manager at Etherlive added: “We are excited to welcome Battersea Evolution to the Etherlive Preferred Partner Programme. Having worked with their team on several events already we are keen to support Battersea in the long term as their customers enjoy the benefits of the latest and greatest technology.”
