Prague. Prague Convention Bureau now guarantees free Wi-Fi internet access to event organizers in most Prague hotels and venues that are members of Prague Convention Bureau. In a recent survey conducted by Prague Convention Bureau, 50 per cent of respondents mentioned free Wi-Fi for delegates as very important; international associations even put this response in the first place. Following these findings, Prague Convention Bureau began negotiations with its members, appealing on the need of free Wi-Fi service in Prague.
As a result of the negotiations, 90 per cent of Prague Convention Bureau member hotels offer free Wi-Fi internet for conference attendees to a certain extent; some of them provide free Wi-Fi in the entire hotel including guest rooms, some of them at least in the conference premises, at the reception, in the lobby bar, or restaurants. Venues usually offer Wi-Fi internet at a basic speed; if higher speed is required, the service is mostly charged.
The move is aimed at boosting the congress tourism industry and meeting clients‘ needs. As of this week, the clients can find Prague suppliers offering free Wi-Fi assigned by a special logo on the PCB website under each member´s profile and easily find out whether Wi-Fi internet access is provided or not.
