Hospitality Network, a Cox Business company, today announced it has been selected to elevate the connectivity experience at the Fort Worth Convention Center (FWCC), beginning just in time for its jam-packed 2022 event season. This decision comes on the heels of the recently announced reinvigoration of the downtown facility, slated to begin its first phase in 2023.
As the FWCC prepares for another year packed with large-scale, in-person events, the venue expects heightened use of high-speed, user-friendly Internet and WiFi that today’s attendees expect. Hospitality Network will partner with FWCC to create a modern guest experience with reliable connectivity and flexible technology pricing.
“Our facility serves the 13th largest city in the nation and brings approximately 900,000 people together for more than 660 event days a year,” said Mike Crum, director of the City of Fort Worth Public Events Department. “As we continue to grow our space and expand our events calendar, creating an advanced connectivity experience became a top priority and Cox Business’ Hospitality Network will help us take that experience to the next level.”
Hospitality Network was chosen to lead the charge, thanks to its extensive portfolio of innovative connectivity offerings and deep industry experience in hospitality. Hospitality Network worked closely with FWCC to create the perfect solution tailored to its needs and will install more than 100 access points throughout the property, covering its roughly 400,000 square feet of exhibit space, meeting spaces, ballrooms and outdoor events plaza. Guests can expect lightning-fast and accessible connectivity throughout the venue with solutions specifically designed to support larger crowds.
“Fort Worth is now considered a top-growth tech city,” said Jady West, vice president of hospitality. “As such, it’s critical that hospitality-focused venues are providing outstanding connected experiences for the ever more tech-savvy guest. Creating this modern, advanced user experience is a major focus at Hospitality Network and we look forward to supporting the Fort Worth Convention Center through this exciting season of expansion.”
