Vicinity RFID’s event ticketing management solution recently made its debut at the 63rd Annual National Conference of the Indian Psychiatric Society (ANCIPS) 2011. The medical conference was held in New Delhi and attracted more than 1,900 attendees.
The solution utilized ThingMagic Astra Readers, Agile Middlewares, and UPM ShortDipole ultra high frequency RFID inlays. Guests were each given an RFID-tagged conference pass which were monitored by Astra Readers installed at the entrance to each hall.
Guest entry and exit times were recorded as they moved from one hall to another, enabling the Indian Psychiatric Society to find out how much time guests spent in the conference halls. The system also offered improved security and enhanced customer service while eliminating long lines to the various locations in the event area.
Data gathered by RFID readers in each hall was processed and evaluated. This real time information, including the time spent at each session and a report of total hours spent in different halls, helps organizers develop their events according the interests of the relevant key target group.
