Connectivity Crib Sheets

capture crib cards

Supporting the Connectivity Flow Chart (below) the venue contingent of the Cross Association Technology Working group have created Exhibitor and Organiser connectivity crib sheets to help establish what is important to you when considering internet connectivity?

In February 2019 the group merged with AEO's Business Technology Information Group (BTIG) for a round table discussion exploring how venues and organisers can work closer together to dispel any myths or misconceptions regarding venue connectivity for Organisers and Exhibitors.

An output from this has been the creation of these two crib sheets. It's aim to help an organiser and exhibitor understand the connectivity capabilities at event venues.

"..work closely with the venue.."

 

Amir leading Tech group

“One of my key priorities as Chair of the Technology Working Group was to widen the conversation to the organiser community and hear from them where the Working Group can add value. 

I am pleased to now share with you some clear guidelines that the group collaboratively created to simplify some of the unknowns surrounding connectivity requirements that you may want to consider when exploring with a venue. The main aim of this is it will support in your decision making process around provisioning for these services clearer and easier to budget for.  

Whatever you do, work closely with the venue as they will know the strengths and weaknesses of their local infrastructure and will be able to offer support and advice.”

Connectivity Flow Chart

 

The Cross Association Technology Working Group have compiled a Connectivity Flow Chart, led by a venue sub-committee.

This Sub-Group was formed to look at evolving the connectivity section of the eGuide, around exhibitor connectivity prior to events. The aim is to create a simple way for exhibitors to understand what they need to order for an event. The best way to illustrate this was to create a process flow.

The idea of the flow is to guide exhibitors in the right direction, whilst keeping everything simple.

Connectivity remains on the Group's agenda mirroring the advances in processes and tech. 

This flow will be included in the release of the eGuide in 2019.
