Paradise, California-based Active Event Technology offers a range of event technology solutions, including registration and onsite check-in, session tracking, lead retrieval, and interactive games. Its onsite registration experience uses cellular phone technology to deliver an alternative method for check-in and badge printing that is cost effective and eliminates waiting time.

Upon arrival at the kiosk, attendees dial a unique telephone number, which prompts the attendee’s name to appear on the screen. A badge is printed within seconds and placed on a rotating badge table for retrieval. Hundreds of people can access the kiosks and dial in simultaneously. Each kiosk is capable of printing over 2,000 badges per hour.

With pre-show and onsite messaging, 98% of attendees will use the kiosk to check in. Staff can also use mobile tablets to locate, edit, and print badges for the small percentage of attendees needing assistance. The fast check-in enhances the attendee experience by giving them more time to network. It frees up staff to have meaningful interactions with attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors.
