WiFi - Social sharing

I'm curious to learn how folks setup the WiFi.. do you require the hotel's WiFi? do you use a mobile hotspot? something else?

    We require wifi by venue for social or we can email or text off line when no wifi.  We let client know in paperwork that we are not responsible for the wifi connection.

    we have 6 booths so an air card for each booth is just not an afgordable or reasonable option.

    A lot of hotel's wifi will not allow networking between devices though... so we use  microsoft one drive and upload the files there then they can sync to a tablet running widows.... then can be posted or emailed.  Just be sure to shoot on medium to small large photo size can slow it all down.

    Open wifi connections shared by public can often mean everything will be slow or you may even have to go offline depending on the venue.

    We can do social at the booth and on a seperate surface pro 4 tablet.... if offline w no wifi you cannot get images to tablet and we used to connect an ethernet cable to pc and tablet to get images over... but that caused issues when wifi did work so would not recommed that except as a back up method when off line.

    Hope this helps

    RULE #1 – NEVER RELY ON VENUE/CLIENT WI-FI!For anyone who does social sharing OUTSIDE of the booth, we always recommend that you NEVER rely on venue wifi. When doing social media sharing, the goal is to eliminate as many variables as possible, so you should always bring YOUR OWN hotspot to every event.
