MGM Resorts' other new Wi-Fi programs include a state-of the-art interactive wayfinding resort map, on-site promotional offers and restaurant wine, cocktail, beer and dessert menu apps. Currently available at Bellagio with other resorts to follow, the location-based map provides users with point-by-point directions to nearby restaurants, the nearest coffee shop, retail stores, restrooms and much more. While on property, Wi-Fi users also may receive offer notifications sent to mobile devices for members-only promotions and services for M life, the Company's premier rewards program. And to complement an amazing dining experience, wine lovers can engage with the new wine menu app, available at several MGM Resorts' restaurants. Guests can discover new wines, read reviews, rate the wine themselves, and even email wine labels so they won't forget a special bottle.
MGM Resorts' new Wi-Fi delivers a superior customer service experience for convention attendees as well. Regardless of the size, meeting organizers want connectivity for their attendees, who use two devices per person on average. Now meeting groups have the support they need, even for large conventions, with the option to upgrade to a premium-level, guaranteed service. Previously able to offer support for up to 4,000 concurrent users, MGM Resorts, with its new Wi-Fi deployment, has the capability to support up to 120,000 concurrent users in Las Vegas.
Another key feature for groups is the ability to customize Wi-Fi networks. Within a specially created, private Wi-Fi network, a meeting organizer can design targeted information, provide notes and reminders, update agendas and communicate last-minute changes and much more, based on the group's individual needs. Sub-groups can even be set up with unique passcodes to limit access to certain information. MGM Reorts new user-friendly capabilities for convention groups provide greater control and timely dissemination of information and offers. Sponsor and advertising placements within the custom network are an option for those wanting to offset event costs or provide clients with marketing opportunities.
