Wooshping is delighted to announce that it is working with Story Events on the inaugural London Christmas Party Show. This launch show, to be staged at Banking Hall, the City’s newest landmark events space, on June 10th and 11th, will be introducing a new registration and data capture technology, utilising NFC wristbands to make contact management seamless, Instant and contactless.

Rupert Englander, Wooshping’s MD, commented on the announcement. "We are delighted to have worked with Story to produce custom branded silicone wristbands which incorporate NFC chips. The wristbands will be dynamically allocated on arrival and they allow exhibitors to tap the visitors wristband when they visit their stand, and to instantly take notes about that visit in real-time. This allows immediate and secure data capture, as well as delivering that visitor's contact details directly to the exhibitors online archive, including any notes taken."

"It completely removes the need for business cards in goldfish bowls, hastily scrawled notes and the often costly and time intensive post-event digitisation of business cards and notes.  The solution also has the additional benefit of giving the event organiser live contact data, and even heat mapping, that can then be used for promoting future events.”

Sam Gill, MD of Story Events, added, “We were under some pressure from exhibitors to get away from the traditional badge scanning technology for data capture and have risen to the challenge”, quotes Gill.  “We have combined Wooshping’s NFC wristband data transfer technology with a dedicated piece of bespoke online software which allows the transfer of visitor information to the exhibitors by a simple tap-in system tied to any NFC enabled device”.
