The network name and password will be provided for use on-site.  The Wi-Fi is meant for light browsing, email, etc., if you have essential functions in your booth that require internet (videos, programs, streaming, etc.) it is recommended that you still purchase a hard wire connection through the Iowa Event Center Exhibitor Services.
