WISPAPALOOZA 2021: Event Recap

Preseem WISPAPALOOZA 2021 Event Recap blog

by | November 1, 2021 | Events


In mid-October, six members of the Preseem team flew to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend WISPAPALOOZA 2021, the flagship event of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA).

WISPAPALOOZA is an annual fixed wireless industry trade show that represents the largest gathering of members from the WISPA community. The event continues to get bigger and better with each year, and this time was no exception.

More than 1,700 Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), experts, and vendors attended this year’s WISPAPALOOZA in Las Vegas. As always, there were many opportunities to network, participate in informative sessions, and see the latest products and services from industry vendors. As a result, WISPAPALOOZA 2021 provided attendees with the tools and knowledge necessary to level up their businesses.

Day 1 of WISPAPALOOZA 2021

First on the agenda was getting set up in the exhibit hall. Our team got to work transforming our booth space from eye-sore to eye-catching!

Day 2

Sessions officially kicked off during the second day of the show. Attendees had the chance to join a mix of presentations and panels covering a variety of fixed wireless topics.

The WISPA Awards Luncheon also took place, an annual event showcasing leading contributors within the fixed wireless industry. Much to the delight and honour of our team, Preseem won the Service of the Year award for the third consecutive year!

By midday the exhibit hall was officially opened to attendees. The Preseem booth soon flooded with faces—both familiar and new—looking to catch up with our team and also learn about the new features coming to Preseem.

Days 3 and 4

During the last two days of WISPAPALOOZA, members of our team moderated and presented at a variety of sessions. These included exploring security best practices, examining the cost of fiber, and explaining network monitoring. The Preseem team was happy to share their knowledge and insights with the WISP community across various topics.

We hope you enjoyed this WISPAPALOOZA 2021 recap. As always, the Preseem team had a great time engaging with WISPs during this year’s event! It was a pleasure to see everyone in person again, and we’re already looking forward to reconnecting with everyone at WISPAMERICA in New Orleans next March.
