Sports stadiums, rock concerts, trade shows and conferences benefit from RFID
RFID can reduce counterfeiting and provide helpful visibility
More and more event organisers are taking advantage of the many benefits of RFID when they produce badges, passes and credentials.
By encoding an RFID chip with a unique number onto each tickets for popular sporting events or rock concerts, for example, organisers are able to reduce of even completely eliminate fraud and counterfeiting.
For professional conferences and trade shows, RFID chips embedded into passes and badges can provide useful visibility into the flow of attendee traffic. Information about how and when visitors move into and out of exhibitions halls, conference rooms and plenary auditoriums can help the organisers fix small problems on the go and prepare the event more efficiently for the following year. The information can even be used to ensure that food and beverage service is appropriately distributed and adequately staffed.
In the near future, RFID tickets or badges could also be part of a secure system that would make cashless payments possible at stadium food stands or conference bookstores.
