fielddrive, the award-winning, onsite attendee management technology company, and Zenus, the premier face recognition provider in the events industry, today won the prestigious Tech Watch Award at IBTM World in Barcelona.
Danny Stevens, founder and CEO of fielddrive, said they were “very proud to be leading the way.” Zenus president, Panos Moutafis, added, “This joint award gives us strength to continue spreading innovative solutions and improving the life of event professionals.”
Revolutionizing the industry, this partnership devised, fine-tuned, and trialed face recognition technology to create the world’s fastest event check-in. Providing a cutting-edge, professional and memorable experience for attendees to trade shows, congresses, conferences and corporate events, fielddrive and Zenus’ solution entails a seamless and secure online experience with fully-encrypted biometric data. Although no photos are stored at any stage, attendees faces are recognized as soon as they walk up to a check-in kiosk, and their full-color badges printed instantaneously.
This latest Award follows on from receiving the Best Technology Partnership Award at the Event Technology Awards in London earlier this month.
fielddrive‘s long-standing client and partner, Keller Williams, was one of the first to pilot the new check-in. Allison Young, Events Project Coordinator at Keller Williams, says:
‘We’ve been a client of Fielddrive since 2016, and highly value their commitment to innovation and being industry leaders. This year, we added Zenus’ facial recognition solution to our signature events, and check-in has continued to become even more speedy and stress-free. Utilizing Fielddrive and Zenus allows our attendees to quickly get to the actual event, and provides the planners with further data insights, increased security measures, and happy attendees!’
RAI Amsterdam Exhibition and Convention Centre will be the first to include face recognition at their tradeshow portfolio. Pim Schoonderwoerd, Product manager IT Services, believes this will be a significant improvement in attendee experience at RAI Amsterdam events:
‘The implementation of Fielddrive’s face recognition solution at events in RAI Amsterdam can provide great added value. With the fast check-in and extensive options in badge-printing it will expand RAI’s IT solutions offered to organizers. With the customer friendly face recognition and extensive badge printing options, I am enthusiastic about Fielddrive’s solutions and aim for a long-term partnership’
