CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 24, 2017) – The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) recently announced a two-phase investment towards interconnectivity at the Charlotte Convention Center. As part of the first phase, the new Wi-Fi bandwidth expands complimentary access previously available only in public areas to also include meeting rooms and ballrooms in the facility. In partnership with Smart City networks Charlotte has also tripled the available upload download speed in all of these areas.

“The CRVA is committed to creating a convention experience that is best in class at the Charlotte Convention Center,” says CRVA CEO Tom Murray. “Fast and readily available digital access is something that both planners and attendees are looking for, and we’re confident our venue meets those needs. Our team will continue to actively evaluate the next generation of digital needs to provide the best service for those who visit us here in Charlotte.”

Enhanced connectivity is now available across the center’s flexible configurations of 126,500 square feet of meeting space, which includes 37 meeting rooms, the 35,000-square-foot Richardson Ballroom and the 40,000-square-foot Crown Ballroom for a total of 41 breakout rooms. Additionally, the coverage extends to pre-function space totaling 90,800 square feet surrounding the Richardson and Crown Ballrooms, 43,000 square feet of concourse space for registration or other event components, and the 4,000 square feet of space in the Delish Food Court, which features Einstein Bros. Bagels, Buon Cibo, Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits and Starbucks.
