Industry experts to reveal their ‘Smart’ Strategies at Smart Infrastructure 2017 event

Industry leaders will be revealing their ‘smart’ digital strategies at the inaugural Smart Infrastructure 2017 event being hosted by Zeetta Networks at Ashton Gate Stadium on October 30, 2017.


Each presenter at Smart Infrastructure 2017 will speak on the event theme ‘Smart Leaders for Smart Venues’ and bring their unique insights into how network infrastructure and digital strategies must reflect a greater think-change within IT leadership.


Attendees will benefit from the combined decades of experience of the speakers, which include: Thierry Chau, Global Practice Lead for Ruckus Large Public Venues, who will discuss how the fan experience can be impacted through stadium operations; and Mike Bohndiek, Head of IT at West Ham United FC, who will discuss the power of the programmable stadium and what that means for decision makers within any venue.


Venues and businesses alike need to keep a close eye on the dynamic trends appearing within the connected infrastructure sphere, as Thierry explained:

Stadiums today are not only competing on the field, but also for the minds and wallet share of their fans. Challenged by large screen TV’s and HD transmissions, many are upgrading their infrastructure to ensure high-density broadband delivery not only for fan enjoyment, but also to improve stadium operations.


To maximise the gains of smart infrastructure, an organisation needs to be prepared to adapt its working culture to fit. Venues that miss out on this acceleration towards smart platforms will naturally fall behind their competition, and Zeetta Networks wants to spark new conversations to drive smarter organisational cultures for smart venues, and discover collaborations to solve venue infrastructure limitations.


The evolution of venues, whether they be business offices, hotels, or even entire cities, require smart leadership at the helm to implement smart infrastructure. Smart Infrastructure 2017 will enable the leaders in this field to share valuable insight about transforming a venue into a smart structure that benefits both stakeholders and consumers.


Tickets are still available for Smart Infrastructure 2017, and you can RSVP and secure your place here.
