      Providing excellent WiFi to help build memorable guest experiences

      13.15 - 13.45

      WiFi has become an essential utility that is demanded by the majority of guests in both short and long term stays across all accommodation types. Future-proofing your Wi-Fi design will avoid the need for frequent maintenance and repairs, and also removes the need for upgraded equipment every couple of years and unreliable WiFi leads to frustrated and disappointed guests which in turn leads to poor reviews. Find out how to plan the install of your WiFi offering at the same time as other utilities to avoid situations where WiFi provision becomes expensive, complicated and patchy at best. We’ll explain what you need to consider at the design stage, how you can avoid expensive mistakes and eliminate the risk of providing a poor guest WiFi experience. Come along and join the conversation on how you can deliver the type of service your customers expect and ensure your guests have an awesome WiFi experience.
