Events tech firm launches facial recognition event check-in
04 April 2018 10:52 GMT

Expo Logic, an event technology company, has announced facial recognition event check-in services in partnership with Zenus, an award-winning biometrics company.

This technology allows attendees to check into events using only their face, with the firm saying shorter wait times, more secure meetings, and personalized attendee greetings are just a few of the benefits facial recognition provides.

The company's statement doesn't give information on how induction takes place - one would assume that face images are sent with the registration documents. However, it notes that afterwards, an attendee walks into a conference and heads for a kiosk to check-in. As they approach the kiosk, it recognizes their face, greets them by name, and automatically prints their badge.

"We see attendee faces light up when they interact with the technology," says Jeff Cooper, President of Expo Logic, "They are delighted and surprised by this efficient and personal check-in experience."

The meeting and event industry has responded positively too. Since the first pilot was conducted in the Fall of 2017, facial recognition check-in has been used at several events and will be showing up at many more this year including Community Brands Xperience18 and Keller Williams' Luxury Home Event.

"Facial recognition is intuitive and easy to use. The attendee participation has been exceeding our expectations because people are already familiar with the technology. Event planners who want to maximize their attendee experience should definitely give it a try," says Panos Moutafis, President of Zenus.
