With over 25,000 people in attendance, UK Black Pride is the world’s largest celebration for African, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American and Caribbean-heritage LGBTQI+ people.
The team behind UK Black Pride came to Bytes Digital looking for a dependable Event WiFi solution.
It was vital to UK Black Pride that the WiFi was robust enough to deal with high traffic volumes, and reliable enough for vendors, staff and sponsors to connect their devices—including the all-important PDQ terminals and card machines.
UK Black Pride was held at Olympic Park in London, so vast coverage was required to ensure every corner of the event site had good WiFi signal.
After speaking to the UK Black Pride team, Bytes Digital put together a solution to suit both connectivity and budget requirements for the event.
The solution included:
WiFi is a critical component for any event—and UK Black Pride is no different. With tens of thousands of guests expected, the team had a bulletproof WiFi solution, which lead to an uninterrupted and smooth experience for staff, vendors and guests.
UK Black Pride was a huge success. Vendors, staff and attendees had an amazing time, and seamless WiFi connectivity from Bytes Digital meant that the event ran as smoothly as possible “at no point did we struggle with connectivity”.
UK Black Pride broke records, with over 25,000 people in attendance, making it the biggest event of it’s kind anywhere in the world.
