Hey Guys, we plan on using Square at Transworld (it's just safe and convenient for the show), however I want to know if the Americas Center has available wifi everywhere on the show floor? It'd be MUCH easier to bring an iPad if there's wifi, but if not I'll switch things up.

I was looking through the vendor packets and could swear I saw something about ordering wifi, but I can't find it again. Do we have to order it? Can we order it? What's the deal??

I can't wait for the show! But dang their union at the convention center is rotten!

Bobby,

The convention center has wifi available for purchase, but it's pretty expensive. $184 for the show duration with the advanced rate (due Monday). They basically will give you a username and password to log onto their shared wifi when you arrive. The order form is in the SmartCity pdf on the haa site.

If you have a phone or tablet with cellular service, I'd say use that. For our computers at the show that need internet service, I just grab the cricket or sprint boadband dongles.

Good luck!
