Smart City Networks awarded record number of contract renewals and extensions in 2014

Value of ten contracts totals over $75 million in revenue for the telecommunications company

Smart City Networks, the nation’s largest provider of event telecommunications and technology services for the conventions industry, announced the continued expansion of their nationwide client roster with the addition of ten contracts in 2014, a feat that has broken records as the largest number of contracts awarded to the company within the span of a single year.

Smart City was awarded exclusive multi-year contracts through a competitive bidding process by five facilities, including Tampa Convention Center, Washington State Convention Center, Fort Worth Convention Center, Anaheim Convention Center and Atlantic City Convention Center. The company also extended five of their existing agreements with Virginia Beach Convention Center, Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Phoenix Convention Center, Los Angeles Convention Center and the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

“This has been a challenging but fulfilling year for Smart City. Our team members continue to provide incredible customer service, enabling these successful awards and contract extensions,” said Smart City President Mark Haley. “I couldn’t be more proud of their work – and we have more on the way!”

Smart City’s commitment to delivering the highest-quality telecommunications services and dedication to the technological advancement of its venue partners has allowed the company to partner with nearly 40 venues nationwide. The company has provided cutting edge telecommunications technologies for numerous world-class events attended by thousands of people, such as San Diego Comic-Con, PAX Prime and multiple events hosted by Microsoft, McDonald’s and IBM.

In addition to providing superior network cabling, high-speed Internet, turnkey data networking services, WiFi and telephone services, the company also helps venues implement technological advancements to meet the needs of any event.

In July, Smart City began construction on a distributed antenna system (DAS) at the Phoenix Convention Center. The DAS will be operational in time for the venue to host the media center for the 2015 NFL championship game, which will serve approximately 5,000 members of the media from 30 countries.

Smart City also provides interactive digital signage solutions. Earlier this year, the technology provider oversaw the launch of a complete digital signage system at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Smart City markets and sells the system, which can enhance any show with relevant content such as schedule-at-a-glance, show mapping, logo loops and sponsorship video spots.
