NFC Is Changing The Event Dynamics
NFC is making a smarter move, when it comes to in-event, no-touch communications. Know how:
As per the government safety & hygiene standards, post the global pandemic, opting for cashless mode of payments at events has become a usual for organizers. The attendees can make use of NFC wristbands to make digital money transfers at events. The event organizers can request audience credit card linking with these bands, and in-event shopping can be debited from the allocated attendee cash balance. Even credits can be linked with each attendee tag! For example, the planners can decide on the number of free beverages for attendees and provide them these at the swipe of an attendee NFC-enabled wristband. Using NFC makes the entire event payment process easy and stress-free!
NFC makes event registrations
convenient, and this contactless communication technology accelerates event registrations with a multiplying effect.
Just placing the attendee smartphone against an NFC reader gives them access to the event instantly, without the filling up of the umpteen traditional registration and confirmation paper forms. Event organizers are now placing NFC readers at the event entrance door, to track attendee entry and exit. These tags store valuable information like attendee’s time of entry, time of departure and can be personalized as per the attendee demographics as well. Plus, they reduce the chances of fraud as multiple entries by random unregistered attendees is halted.
Physical hotel room keys and key cards are passe; the attendees can use their smartphones to access their rooms, when attending an event.
Even during the in-event attendance, NFC can assure that the right attendees get access to their preferred areas or locations like the VIP zone, special networking lounges, the backstage and more.
Here’s how the attendee NFC-powered contactless transportation card has come in handy!
The attendee can simply swipe a ‘transportation’ card when going to and from the event venue, and receive an e-receipt in the inbox, upon arrival of the destinations. This has become a very convenient method to manage attendee arrivals.
Essentially, NFC enables you to use contactless readers that Public Transport Operators (PTO) have installed worldwide. This is a practical option for several industries, including the event’s scene, as attendees want to have the smoothest, hassle-free experience possible, including event transportation.
Networking at conferences, trade fairs, and corporate events with improved NFC technology - has paved way for better in-event dialogues. The attendees can connect with peers and experts alike by simply exchanging their name tags. NFC tags have an installed chip within them, that is useful in attendee identity verification and can give out crucial attendee information in seconds. Identity verification also prevents fraud and unwanted visitors at an event.
