Global Spectrum Signs on Smart City Networks to Atlantic City CC, Boardwalk Hall
Global Spectrum, facility managers of the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall, awarded a contract to Smart City Networks to manage all technology and telecommunications services for both venues.
Global Spectrum chose Smart City Networks due to their industry experience and depth of resources. Smart City and Global Spectrum currently work together at two other convention venues in Cincinnati and Miami Beach. The five-year contract took effect on Sept. 1.
“We are extremely honored to have been chosen by Global Spectrum to provide telecommunications services for these two iconic facilities,” said Mark Haley, president of Smart City Networks.
She added, “At Smart City, our primary goal is to ensure our venue partners are equipped and outfitted with the latest advancements in technology, and capable of hosting a wide variety of events attended by thousands of people.”
Smart City, Global Spectrum and the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority will upgrade all technological infrastructure necessary for a full data and wireless network upgrade.
Once these systems are completed, Smart City will provide network cabling, high-speed Internet access, turnkey data networking services, Wi-Fi, and analog, digital and conference phone services for all future events hosted by both facilities.
The enhancements and services provided by Smart City will bolster the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall’s technological capabilities, allowing each venue to host world-class events that meet the growing needs of event organizers, managers, exhibitors and attendees.
After working with Smart City at two previous convention centers, Karen Totaro, general manager for Global Spectrum at the Atlantic City Convention Center commended the company on its dedication to customer care and professionalism.
"I am beyond thrilled that Smart City Networks is joining the team at the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall," Totaro said. "They are the industry leaders on all things tech and will exceed our customers’ expectations. Our competitive edge just took a giant step forward!”
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
