PDC, the identification solutions provider, in partnership with SHO Services, the event security, safety and risk management solutions provider, will showcase its RFID solutions and consultation services at the Pollstar Live! 2014 trade show and conference in Booth #108-109 from 19-21 February at the Omni Hotel in Nashville, TN. Pollstar Live! is an annual concert industry consortium where leading industry professionals gather to view the latest products, equipment and technology for the successful management of live events.
At Pollstar Live!, PDC will showcase its Smart Band RFID Wristband System that has helped hundreds of promoters and venue operators to enhance the guest experience and boost revenue by allowing guests to load funds onto their Smart Band® before an event, significantly increasing impulse purchases. Each Smart Band is powered by a small RFID chip containing a unique code -- that when scanned and validated by a reader -- allows guests to have instant access to venues, make cashless purchases, and upload photos and videos to social media websites. The RFID technology in Smart Band essentially terminates counterfeits, saving promoters revenue from look-alike wristbands deceiving event security. SHO Services, which specialises in implementing RFID credentials and applications for live events, will educate attendees on successful installation strategies.
"PDC has continued to expand its Smart Band product line, which now includes wristbands, lanyards, ID cards, labels and parking passes to meet every customer's specific needs. As major events have a need for high-impact branding, PDC has also broadened our customization capabilities to include full-colour printing for sponsor logos, graphics and text," said Robin Barber, vice president of leisure and entertainment for PDC. "Smart Band wristbands are non-transferable and available in a variety of materials including plastic, re-wearable silicone, and our woven fabric -- which is a favourite for concerts and music festivals."
Since its launch in 2001, PDC's Smart Band RFID Wristband System has been implemented at live entertainment venues across the globe as part of time-save applications that help redefine the guest experience, while reaping significant bottom line benefits to the venues that use them. Applications for Smart Band include: cashless point-of-sale; cashless arcade and vending; social media integration; keyless hotel and locker access; electronic access control; photo management systems; and customer loyalty programmes. Additional PDC RFID Solutions include PDC Smart Cards, Key Fobs, Lanyards, Labels, and Parking Passes.
