Better connected at the 2015 CLA Game Fair


Get better, faster connection at this year’s CLA Game Fair: mobile communications coverage and services will be enhanced thanks to a recent investment in technology to fund 12 free Wi-Fi hotspots around the show site. The funding for the high-speed connectivity has been provided by the CLA as well as sponsorship from interested exhibitors.

So when you head up to Harewood House for the next fair between Friday 31 July and Sunday 2 August, you’ll be able to use mobile phones, tablets and payment terminals more effectively.

Exhibitors can look forward to a congestion-free payment system thanks to the “123VIP” broadcast network across the showground, which will be exclusively dedicated to the transmission and processing of credit and debit card transactions.

Tony Wall, Director of the CLA Game Fair, commented: “We are aware of the problems visitors have experienced with mobile network coverage at countryside events and this investment will create one of the UK’s best ever show experiences for smartphone and tablet users. It will not only mean they can stay in touch with family and friends during the event but that they can make use of social media and enjoy an enhanced CLA Game Fair experience.”

Robert Sears, CLA Game Fair Exhibitor Liaison Officer, added: “Mobile network congestion has meant past frustration for exhibitors using card payment machines but the new 123VIP private network will ensure they can process card payments quickly and efficiently. We are encouraging all exhibitors to make use of this service to ensure they get the very best out of this year’s CLA Game Fair.”
