Now in its second year, the INCON Digital Infrastructure 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.
Presenting the award, Roslyn McLeod, INCON Co Chair said: “We are delighted that Melbourne has won this year’s award they were by far our strongest entry. We hope that other venues will follow suit and lift the quality of digital infrastructure across the whole industry”.
“In today’s world, the quality of the digital infrastructure and support tools a venue provides can make or break an event, not to mention just providing a positive experience for the delegates who just want to stay connected.” said Bob Heile, the award judge. “Effectively managing large numbers of connected devices greatly improves the effectiveness of an event and delegate satisfaction. It is hard work but results in huge dividends. By recognising Melbourne as industry leaders we hope to inspire others to make similar investments in their digital infrastructure.”
Daniel Branik, Arinex General Manager who also sits on the INCON Judging panel remarked “the cloud is pushing many services from onsite to online, putting additional pressure on venues and their digital infrastructure. It is important for venues to keep up with these trends providing sufficient bandwidth and infrastructure. INCON Digital Infrastructure Award recognises those that do that the best.”
ICCA CEO Martin Sirk: “The venue members of ICCA are the top specialists for international association meetings for whom WiFi and digital infrastucture are critical issues, so we are delighted to see our members’ expertise being recognised by the top PCO’s of INCON.”
