Italian Exhibition Group announces digital innovation project

by Nicola Macdonald

Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), an Italian exhibition organiser and venue operator, has announced a new partnership with US-based internet software and hardware provider Ruckus to transform the network infrastructure of Rimini Expo Centre.

The venue now has 25km of fibre-optic cable and digitalised facilities for exhibitors and buyers including automation, video surveillance systems,  geolocation services and more, along with a cabled network capable of providing up to 160GB/s.

The change is enabling IEG to enter the world of data tracking and big data, and will also mean that the venue is pre-prepared for the arrival of 5G technology.

The upgrades were tested at artisan confectionary exhibition SIGEP 2019 in January, while the official launch will coincide with RiminiWellness taking place from 30 May to 2 June.
