As the events industry ground to a halt, events cancelled and venues closed, the noba team refused to stand still. Like many companies, we found ourselves adapting to support all of our industry sectors across our brand portfolio, including healthcare, education and construction. This was alongside investing the team’s enforced downtime into the R&D side of our business. Their ingenuity was focused on what would be required in our newly adapted world and so, the nBox was born; our solution for portable and unlimited plug and play internet, and enterprise grade WiFi for team home working, smaller scale events and live streaming.

At noba, we have been live streaming events for many years over our 20-year existence, and the noba team have learned to stream from pretty much any location on the planet. We’ve even streamed from a racing yacht out at sea! Click on the title above to read more.

The world around us is changing, and the live events industry is adapting with it. As venues reopen and live events begin to take place once again, we understand that not everyone will want to, or be able to, return in person immediately. We know it’s likely to take a while for audience confidence and investment in larger scale events to return, and that hybrid events will become the new norm. However we also understand that it might be difficult to navigate this new and complex virtual landscape, so we thought we’d take you through what a hybrid event is, why you should host one, and how we can help you make the move to hybrid for your next event.

By Nick Taylor , Managing Director at Noba Event Wi-Fi Virtual Fusion – How the Noba Tech Glue solution can transform the virtual platform experience Successful events are about getting the balance right between planning and delivery, vision and budget, and pulling the perfect team together to design and deliver it. The same philosophy applies to taking events online. Just as much time, effort, creativity, and expertise needs to be dedicated to whatever you're being asked to produce. We all know that every event is different, and one size does not fit all. A huge amount of thought and planning needs to take place to enjoy success. Click on the title above to read more.

By Nick Taylor , Managing Director at Noba Event Wi-Fi. Virtual insanity - how home internet connections can derail your online event. The rush to virtualise events as the world has grappled to deal with the global pandemic is evident from the deluge of blog posts, social feeds, and webinars that are currently flooding the internet. Even for those of us that consider ourselves "tech-savvy", the learning curve in terms of the products available and which one will best serve our requirements has been insane. We are being bombarded with information, ideas, and solutions. It's simple; ‘If you are connected to the internet and your remote attendees can get online, then you've got everything you need to host a virtual event’! But is that fact or fiction?

By Nicole Tur, Operations Director at Noba Event Wi-Fi In 2009 I purchased my first road bike and it changed my weekends forever. Three years later I joined my first cycling club and I was the only female cyclist in the club. I was really benefiting from being part of the club, it motivated me to turn up when I signed up for rides and my time spent on my bike was increasing and so was my fitness. I had noticed many other women out cycling on their own in my area but they weren’t joining our club so I created a women-only ride for the club and started spreading the word locally and via a Facebook group.

By James Grant, Technical Director at Noba Event Wi-Fi For most event professionals the working week consists of hours out of the office, in the confines of an exhibition or conference venue or travelling on public transport to said venue. Staying connected to the rest of the world while we are away is a given these days, just like light and running water, and most of us rely on the use of our mobile or other devices to do this.

In the world of Wi-Fi, there is a next-generation wireless standard upon us. Wi-Fi 6 still connects you to the internet yet has a bunch of additional technologies such as lower battery consumption in Wi-Fi 6 devices, higher data rates with peak Gigabit speeds and increased capacity with reduced latency to support higher numbers of users and devices, thanks to improved medium access control (MAC) control signalling. For those of us working in events where a bulletproof Wi-Fi connection can be integral to their success, will Wi-Fi 6 have a major impact? We’ve outlined the most event relevant benefits of the new standard below: Click on the title above to read more.
