Smart City Networks announced that it will continue to serve as the exclusive information technology (IT) provider at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) and the Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC) in Louisville, Ky. Smart City Networks was also named the preferred audio visual (AV) service provider at these centers as well as the KFC Yum! Center.
Convention Communication Provisioners Inc. (CCPI), a subsidiary of Smart City Networks, has been the service provider at the Louisville facilities since 2005. This contract renewal extends the facilities’ relationship with Smart City for an additional 7 years with an option for a 3 year extension. The AV services will be delivered through Smart City Networks’ partnership with C&H Audio Visual Services Inc.
“We are proud to have the opportunity to provide IT and AV services
at these facilities and to continue to serve their customers,” said Mark Haley, president of Smart City Networks. “Events today often require both IT and AV services, so our partnership will benefit event customers by offering them one expert team that can meet all of their technology needs.”
Smart City Networks will be upgrading the network throughout KEC and KICC. This upgrade will include new fiber in several locations and will upgrade both KICC and KEC networks to a more robust infrastructure functioning out of one central location on a single Cisco platform. This will offer customers a faster connection on an even more reliable network. New access points throughout the facilities will also improve services offered in both venues.
“Our Kentucky team has always strived to provide the highest level of service to our customers and the facilities in Louisville,” said Daniel Dobson, Smart City Networks’ general manager for the Kentucky region. “We are all excited to continue our work in Kentucky and intend to maintain our high standards for service and technology, including the new infrastructure to be installed.”
