INCON DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE AWARD

Recognizing and rewarding excellence in
digital infrastructure and services

The Digital Infrastructure Award has been developed by INCON to celebrate and inspire change in the digital infrastructure and services made available in meeting venues around the world.

The Award rests on a simple principle that meetings are better when a first class digital infrastructure is made available along with applications and tools that enhance the delegate productivity and experience.

The Award recognizes meeting venues that work innovatively to enable top class connected meetings. But more than that, we want these examples to inspire others. That is why we are working with the best partners in the industry to judge this award.

    SECRET TO DIGITAL AWARD SUCCESS

    For H82 CEO Johann Weck, the secret to the award-winning WLAN's success is down to 3 key elements:

    • Beginning with the right hardware.
    • Availability of the necessary expertise to get the best out of it.
    • The opportunity to offer an exceptional level of service to customers.

    "When we selected the new hardware around three years ago, the manufacturer of the technology was present at the first congress just to be on the safe side.

     

    Even they were amazed when they saw how quickly we were able to fix any issues that came up. And it’s exactly this level of service that our customers value," Mr Weck revealed. "We are on site, constantly taking the system to the next level."
