Facial Recognition – Facial recognition technology is still new to the industry but it is quickly becoming a popular tech element to include at events. Expo Logic recently started offering facial recognition technology as a solution for on-site registration and attendee check-in. Using images uploaded by attendees during the registration process, a camera setup at the registration kiosk on-site captures the attendee’s image and automatically recognizes them and prints their badge as they approach the kiosk. This technology is exciting for attendees and creates a more personal experience for them at check-in.
