Max WiFi has installed 100Mb fibre optic circuit in the park which will remain throughout the year and will install 35 wireless access points within the structures, and ten extra for the Frieze Art Fair offices. Anyone attending Frieze will be able to gain access to the internet to use social media, email or view galleries’ websites.

The event, which runs from 13 to 16 October, hosts 170 galleries and attracts collectors and appreciators.

Organisers expect between 50,000 to 80,000 visitors over, with 2,000 on site at any one time.

Richard Hughes, managing director of Max Wifi said "We’re delighted to be working with Frieze Art Fair and presented a long term resolution that they will be able to use year after year.

"The brief was to supply a solution for a high density of smart devices which can prove a number of challenges to provide WiFi for but we’re confident we’ve designed the right infrastructure for Frieze Art Fair."
