Writing for event planner Greg Ruby's blog Gems, Bob James, ITN's Vice President, Marketing calls NFC "awesomely easy."
"A lot has been said (rightfully so) about the 'game-changing' impact near-field communication (NFC) will have on events," James writes. "Less has been said about how easy it is to use NFC."
Ease-of-use is one key reason NFC has been adopted by major business-to-business event producers worldwide, including CTIA, IBC and GSMA, and by large business-to-consumers organizations like the Walt Disney Company.
With NFC, functions like event ticketing, access control, games and contests, session scanning, lead retrieval and attendee tracking becomes suddenly easier—and less intrusive—than ever before.
If you’re not yet using NFC, you’re probably aware of how it works from Samsung’s edgy TV commercial, “Work Trip.”

Later this month, the mammoth Mobile World Congress will showcase "The NFC Experience," enabling attendees to take full advantage of near-field communication while visiting the event.
“We’re excited to launch The NFC Experience for Mobile World Congress, as it provides attendees to the event the opportunity to experience first-hand the power of NFC technology both throughout the Mobile World Congress venue, as well as in the city of Barcelona,” said Michael O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer, GSMA, which sponsors the event.
During registration, attendees with NFC-enabled handsets (Android 4 and above or Windows Phone 8 operating system) can opt to receive "virtual badges." These permit show entry with a physical badge, but without any need to present a photo ID.
Attendees with NFC-enabled handsets will also be able to take advantage of NFC "touchpoints" that will be placed throughout the the walkways, entrances and exhibition halls of Fira Gran Via, as well as the city of Barcelona.
The touchpoints will reward attendees with instant access to information about conference sessions, keynotes, exhibits, restaurants and nearby conveniences. NFC touchpoints will also be placed the airport, key hotels and select tourist attractions.
Topping off The NFC Experience, attendees will also be able to pay for taxis and shop goods with NFC.
Exhibitors can take full advantage of NFC for lead retrieval by working with ITN. To learn more about our offerings, watch a brief Webinar, How to Optimize Lead Retrieval at MWC.
