Intellitix, a global provider of RFID solutions for live events, has launched into the exhibition market having deployed its RFID access control technology at Fantasy Football Fest.
Thousands of ticket holders in attendance were issued with wristbands featuring an RFID chip that was used to validate their right of admission. To enter the exhibition, fans validated their one-day or weekend wristbands on one of the ten custom-built Intellitix entrance portals.
Secure and fast access control was provide as each entrance portal – capable of processing 2,500 people per hour – eliminated long lines for autographs of NFL stars such as Michael Vick and NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly.
The inaugural event took place Aug. 18 – 19, 2012 at the Atlanta City Convention Center, New Jersey staged by ReedPOP, the boutique pop culture-focused division of Reed Exhibitions.
