It feels like a lifetime ago since we were watching Team GB win 29 gold medals at the Olympics, and yet here we are, already preparing for the 2013 event season - it's fair to say that 2012 has flashed by faster than Usain Bolt himself.
As thousands of event organisers descend on Newbury's Showman's Show next Weds and Thurs, we'll be joining the event services elite as we exhibit our latest and greatest products in a bid to kick-start the year ahead.
RFID questions answered
After firmly (and finally) landing at a host of British festivals this summer, RFID technology has been a talking point throughout 2012 and we're proud to have been part a number of landmark events. Even since the recent Adidas Underground project where we supplied RFID wristbands and cards, we've already seen new ways in which companies are planning to leverage RFID in 2013. Alas, with any new tech developments, the floodgates have opened to the doubters and naysayers, so, as part of our Showman's Show exhibit, Steve Daly, our expert and head of RFID will be answering questions and explaining how RFID can be used to enhance events for organisers and fans. You'll even get the chance to use one of our RFID wristbands. Follow RFIDSteve on Twitter for the latest updates.
The Aladdin's cave for event organisers
There's no magic lamp but when it comes to security identification and accreditation, we're proud to now offer organisers an umbrella service, covering
- custom printed wristbands
- event passes
- pass boards
- id wallets...
you get the picture! On top of this, our in-house design team will take care of all the artwork, and we'll even offer a free wristband recycling service. Visit our stand and you'll be able to view all of our security products and even grab a few samples to take away.
If you can't make the show but still want to see what we have on offer, then check out our brand new website (you're already on it!). The site is full of useful information and advice for event organisers, including our new wristband wizard app, which helps identify the most suitable wristbands for your event. We've also upgraded our custom wristband designer too, allowing organisers to customise any fabric, vinyl or Tyvek wristbands from the comfort of their office. The designer works a treat on iPads and iPhones too! So you can order those last-minute wristbands while on site at an event.
The Showman's Show takes place next Weds 17th & Thurs 18th October at Newbury Showground.
You can find ID&C at Stand 31 in the Exhibition Hall.
