The campaign, aimed at encouraging conference venues across the UK to provide wi-fi free of charge to conference delegates, is backed by 190 venues including Twickenham Experience and Brighton Centre.

Managing director of the ICC Birmingham Nick Waight said: "We have provided free delegate wi-fi for over a year now as we recognised early on it is a service venues within our industry should be offering as a matter of course. We are extremely pleased to be joining ABCO’s Conference Cloud campaign and support them in their efforts to highlight the importance of delivering value to your end customer and responding to the changing needs of the market." 

ABPCO chair Michael Foreman added: "In terms of the future, the campaign will continue to focus on meetings and conference venues aiming to secure the support of more large conference centres such as the ICC in Birmingham. We will be looking to extend the remit of the campaign over the next six to twelve months, including working on assisting larger venues with creative modelling to enable them to offer free delegate wi-fi. In addition we will be further developing the Conference Cloud website to become a reference tool for conference organisers to check where free wi-fi is available across the UK, constantly focusing as we do on the top priorities of buyers and PCOs."
