Las Vegas based Technology Company Honored as an Industry Trendsetter
Smart City Networks was honored at the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce 2017 Business Excellence Awards as a Trendsetter in the Las Vegas business community.
The honor recognizes Smart City for its innovative event technology, industry leadership, and foresight in the business community in Las Vegas and nationwide. “We are excited to be honored by our local business community as a Trendsetter,” said Mark Haley, President of Smart City Networks. “I am proud of the work our team has done to position Smart City as an industry leader in providing cutting edge, innovative technology to convention centers across the country and the ongoing positive impact our efforts continue to have on a national scale.”
With over 200 employees nationwide, Smart City has solidified its role as an industry leader in not only telecommunications and event technology, but also in leading key initiatives within the meeting and convention industry. Most recently, Smart City led the charge with the International Association of Venue Managers to establish Common Sense Rules for WiFi usage in convention centers and other public venues. Smart City took a proactive stance on what wireless network management actions should be permitted and recommended strategies for promoting the enhanced security for networks and devices utilizing WiFi in industry venues.
“Being actively involved with industry issues on a national scale is an important initiative for Smart City,” Haley said. “As an industry leader, it is crucial for us to lead efforts in presenting resolutions to industry issues and eventually, establishing new standards that improve the entire convention and meeting industry.”
