Here we look at some of the event organizers who have utilized RFID technology in their events.

The wristbands are fitted with tiny chips to collect the guest’s information that is then stored in the hotel database for use in the future. The RFID wristband contains the guest’s tickets embedded in it and when the RFID tag in the wristband is scanned, the data about the guest are retrieved and send to the hotel backend database. Their readability speed is high compared to the barcode wristbands hence reducing the time for guest’s management, and more guests are served at a particular time.

They can also be used for patient tracking while in the hospital, especially infants and people with dementia. The RFID tags communicate with the workflow software and RTLS over the hospital’s Wi-Fi network. When patients move, sensors strategically placed in rooms and hallways detect their location, allowing hospital staff to monitor patients at all times.
RFID wristbands in music festivals
Guests attending the music festivals are given RFID wristbands used for various uses such as event entry, making purchases, and preventing fraud.

The RFID wristband is scanned whenever the guest wants to access any place within the event venue. This helps the event managers know the number of guests who have attended the music festival without physically recording them. This minimizes fraud because of fake tickets and fastens the process of guest management.
RFID wristbands are just revolutionizing the world. Just a wristband has been developed to convey enormous content. It comes with numerous advantages in any sector that has been applied and this is a technology that should be adopted by event planners.
