Curve IT to keep Brighton Spiegeltent connected with renewed contract for Brighton Fringe

Brighton-based connectivity specialist Curve IT has been re-appointed by Brighton Spiegeltent to handle WiFi and network requirements for the upcoming Brighton Fringe.

The Spiegeltent, which will be located on the Old Steine for the duration of the Brighton Fringe Festival this May, will be hosting a variety of live shows and experiences from cabaret to live comedy.

Curve’s appointment will ensure that all connectivity needs at the event are met, including requirements for card and mobile payments, Wi-Fi access for customers and Wi-Fi marketing.

The implementation of Wi-Fi marketing means promotions for upcoming events at the tent will be boosted, as Curve’s network enables ads to be ‘pushed’ directly to user’s devices when they join.

Food vendors will also able to link their direct menus to the portal, meaning visitors can browse menus at their leisure before making a decision.

Adrian Bristow of Brighton Spiegeltent said:

“Reliable connectivity plays a crucial role in delivering entertainment at the Speigeltent. From ticket sales to mobile payments for food and drink, it’s important that we have WiFi we can rely on.”

“It’s also equally important that our customers have internet access during shows so they can engage on social media for example.”

Curve IT has vast amounts of experience in dealing with temporary and semi-permanent networks for festivals and other pop-up events, including Brighton Pride.

Simon O’Hare, Managing Director of Curve IT, said:

“It’s great to be working with the Brighton Spiegeltent organisers again. Customers expect reliable WiFi connectivity at major events but delivering this requires a specific approach that ensures enough capacity to support large crowds and multiple devices all accessing the network at the same time.

“Our solution will ensure both organisers and those attending the event can enjoy a first rate WiFi experience.”
