Zenus honored for its event face recognition check-in solution
Zenus, a face recognition solutions provider for the events industry, and onsite attendee management technology company Fielddrive together won the Tech Watch Award at IBTM World in Barcelona last month.
A panel of industry experts judged Zenus and Fielddrive as the overall IBTM World Tech Watch Award winners from a shortlist of nine finalists, for their “pioneering and impactful work in bringing facial recognition software to the events industry”.
“This year’s award certainly points out significant event technology trends for our industry,” explained Corbin Ball, chair of the IBTM World Tech Watch Award. “Zenus and Fielddrive are among the first companies to bring this technology to events. Zenus is the creator of the software, and Fielddrive has been a significant implementor of the product by exploring and measuring the onsite best cases for use.”
The Fielddrive and Zenus solution enables a seamless and secure check-in experience with fully-encrypted biometric data. Attendees’ faces are recognized as soon as they walk up to a check-in kiosk, and their full-color badges printed instantaneously. The software and hardware is incorporated into the Fielddrive kiosks, making it a plug-and-play solution.
The IBTM award follows the companies receiving the Best Technology Partnership Award at the Event Technology Awards in London earlier this month.
“This joint award gives us strength to continue spreading innovative solutions and improving the life of event professionals,” commented Zenus president, Panos Moutafis.
Earlier this year Zenus announced a partnership with event technology company Expo Logic to offer facial recognition event check-in services.
