Setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot for an upcoming event could end up being the boost you need to finally make a big break. The edge of instant reviews should never be overlooked. It’s an opportunity to clinch your niche from the ground up.

That said you will also benefit greatly from setting up the hotspot for your own business reasons. Product launches are like meeting someone for the 1st time and you need to make sure that you make a good first impression be it by your own devices or based on reviews by the attendees. Here are 5 reasons you should consider setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot at your next event;

Event wifi hotspot will also enable you to process cashless payments made by running a card.

All you need is internet connection and the RFID chip reader for swiping purposes.
3. Free PR
The younger generations have a desire to post their life online at all times. This offers you a unique opportunity to get free PR when they post videos and pictures of your launch oh their social media pages. To capitalize further on this opportunity, you can invite some vloggers, bloggers and influencers to the event and have them post live videos and pictures.
4. Cheap attraction
