Speedy Expo has developed into the hire industry's premier annual event, attracting 3,000 visitors in 2015. Codegate were invited to provide on-site delegate badge printing, with each badge incorporating a passive UHF RFID tag. This was scanned non-intrusively at key points throughout the event using readers, antennas and software supplied by Codegate. Information available to the event organisers included individual and amortised information relating to arrival times and key points of interest.
On arrival, delegates could choose a self-service option by presenting their smart phone or printed bar coded invitation to a bar code reader in order to print their badge, delivered in under 5 seconds.
Interactive information kiosks were also provided at key points around the venue, where delegates could access floor plans, exhibitor information, event photos, plus the opportunity to vote on their favourite product at the event.
Delegate badge printing, information kiosks and all RFID reading infrastructure was provided by Codegate. Behind the scenes Codegate's REGDESK software also managed the gala dinner table plan and hotel room allocation.
