DB Event Networks has been selected by Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) to provide a managed solution for its Wi-Fi & fixed line internet provision for events for next three years.

AECC hosts a multitude of events each year, including high profile oil and gas events. In the past year these have included Offshore Europe, All-Energy, Oil & Gas UK Share Fair, The World Heavy Oil Congress, Unconventional Gas Conference 2012 and DEVEX 2012. Therefore it is vital that the Centre provides a stable and reliable network for use by event organisers, exhibitors and attendees.

DB Event Networks has installed a scalable hardwired and Wi-Fi network, which covers the entire Venue. When required, the network can be extended into any temporary structures that may be used as part of larger shows.

As an exhibition specialist contractor with ISO9001 systems in place, DB Event Networks is able to directly support event and exhibition customers, enabling the AECC to offer a flexible and scalable package of internet solutions, as well as the customer service levels required by  increasingly demanding clients seeking higher levels of connectivity, as mobile device use grows rapidly.

Jay Goldson, Head of Division for DB Event Networks, said: “We specialise in designing, installing and managing the internet and telecommunications infrastructure for both indoor and outdoor events held anywhere in the world. However, this contract is hugely significant for DB as a permanent presence at the Venue will be required.

“The AECC has clearly stated how important Wi-Fi and fixed line connectivity is to its exhibition business and customers’ businesses, so we are very much looking forward to getting started.”

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director, said: “Increasing demands for internet connection, particularly Wi-Fi, at events is so critical a part of our business that we made the decision that an event specialist should be appointed to manage our Wi-Fi network. Event organisers demand a robust, flexible Wi-Fi system for their events at our Centre.”

He added: “We are confident that DB Event Networks will ensure AECC provides clients with the services they now expect for their delegates. Dramatic growth in the use of Wi-Fi mobile devices means we need to ensure our systems have the capability and flexibility to support this.”
