Not all events can be held using Samsung Galaxy Tabs or iPads, there are some events where you may need more power or just a different operating system than what you would get with an iPad rental or an Android tablet rental. If you ever find yourself in this scenario, perhaps the best tablet rental option for you would be a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 rental. Although bulky for a tablet, the Surface Pro 4’s make up for their abnormal size in other aspects such as:

  • Storage Space

If you’ve used up a tablets storage space before you probably won’t have to worry about that with a Surface Pro 4. Even if you’re using the Surface Pro 4 like a laptop, it would be a feat to fill up this device’s memory if you get the maximum storage option. The Surface Pro 4 can come equipped with up to a 1 terabyte solid-state drive hard drive. That gives you 1000 gigabytes to work with which is a whole lot of space for event purposes. If you don’t see yourself needing 1000 gigabytes, the Surface Pro 4’s come with a minimum of 128 gigabytes.

 

Microsoft did not skip out on memory when it comes to RAM either. The Surface Pro 4 can come with up to 16 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM. To provide a comparison, most laptops come with either 6 or 8 gigabytes of RAM as a default option, which gives some amount of credibility to the Microsoft advertising campaign that these tablets can replace your laptop.  

 

  • Operating System and Application Functionality

Since the Surface Pro 4 is a Microsoft device, it should come as no surprise that the Pro 4 comes equipped with the latest version of Windows: Windows 10. Windows 10 fixed a lot of issues prevalent in Windows 8 and 8.1, and Windows 10 itself has had a lot of time for improvement since its release.

 

  • Audio and Display Enhancements

Although you may not necessarily require every single one of your attendees to be using the audio on your Microsoft Surface Pro 4’s, you will still be pleased to know that the audio quality delivered by the Surface Pro 4 when in use can be both loud and clear at the same time.

 

The Surface Pro 4’s display details are also impressive for a tablet. The screen size of a Surface Pro 4 is 12.3 inches with an aspect ratio of 3:2. Surface Pro 4’s  have resolutions of 2736×1824, and displays 267 pixels per inch. Lastly, one of my personal preferences when looking at display qualities is screen reflection, which has fortunately been decreased from the Surface Pro 3.

The Surface Pro 4 is a powerhouse of a tablet, and is a definite improvement to its predecessor, the Surface Pro 3. If you think the tablets you have at your next event will require a lot of power, storage space, or even just the Windows 10 operating system, get Surface Pro 4 event rentals for your next event.

Conferences and conventions can be very hectic affairs. Conferences can experience a whole lot of traffic before and between keynote speakers and breakout rooms, and conventions can just be busy non-stop. Due to the large amount of activity going on, keeping things orderly can be a bit of a challenge, and when you’re dealing with rented technology you really want to keep things orderly. One way of regaining some control over your next big event is by renting tablet kiosks.

Due to the sleek, user friendly, touchscreen design of most tablets, they make for great kiosk devices. Kiosks with traditional computers are much less space and cost efficient than iPad kiosks rentals. An iPad kiosk has an enclosure which encases the iPad, and these enclosures can only be opened by a key in order to ensure no threat of theft or damage. Most of the enclosure cases are made of metal, and can come in your choice of over 40 color options.  

iPad Kiosks

There are several ways you can go about implementing your tablet kiosks to make your event more organized.  Perhaps one of the most practical applications for a tablet kiosk rentals is to use your kiosks as a registration and check-in system. You will most likely still want a small number of people making sure the people getting into your event are actually supposed to be there, but using tablet kiosks for registration can free up a lot of manpower you will probably need elsewhere.

Another way you can improve your event is by getting your tablet kiosk rentals for event engagement. Event engagement being defined in the sense of event participation, not the marriage type of engagement. If you want your event attendees to be entertained and informed, there’s no better way of doing so than by giving them a bit of interaction which can easily be provided through your kiosks.

Tablet kiosks, much like their names suggest, are also great for marketing purposes at conventions and trade shows. Tablets are capable of quickly and efficiently storing information which can be used for marketing, which has made them a favorite tool in the arsenal of many event professionals. Be warned though, when using kiosk rentals for this purpose you will want applications which run offline, as the Wifi available at event locations can often be erratic in nature, which will lead to Wifi applications failing to run and possibly losing attendee inputs.   

There are many uses for tablet kiosks rentals, which can make them a great tool in any event planner’s arsenal. Here’s a tip though: if you want to increase attendee engagement in conferences in which you have speakers, consider sticking with a traditional event tablet rental instead of renting kiosks, which are bolted down to one specific position and take up much more space.
