Hereford-based tech firm enjoys shortlisting at prestigious national festival awards 2019

One of the UK’s leading suppliers of mobile WiFi and technology services to festivals and events, SimpliWiFi, has been named as a finalist in at next year’s Festival Supplier Awards 2019

The firm, located in Hereford, but which supports events across the UK has been added to the shortlist for the Best Festival Technology Provider Award for its outstanding range of technology-driven solutions for the events sector.

Speaking about the firm’s shortlisting, Ozan Pakyuz, SimpliWiFi’s Managing Director, said: “We were really excited to learn that we had made the shortlist for the Festival Supplier Awards in two categories based upon our work supporting a number of events with our wide range of technology services.

“During the last 12 months, we have integrated a number of new changes into our offering to event and festival organisers, which have been really well received. Looking ahead we are already exploring technologies, such as 5G, to see how we can provide new solutions to events across the UK.”

SimpliWiFi will find out if it has won the award at a glamorous event due to be held at the Hurlingham Club in London on 31st Janruary 2019.

“We have high hopes of coming home with an award, but we are just as happy to be named as a finalist for these well-respected awards,” added Ozan.
