Connecting travel and trade
TRENZ is New Zealand’s largest annual business-to-business travel and trade event. A four day opportunity for delegates to forge relationships and do business with one another.
Satellite were engaged by TRENZ to provide multiple event technology solutions for the 2018 event including registration, comms, unique mobile companions, delegate access control and attendance tracking, contractor management, as well as onsite support during pack-in and event week in Dunedin.
We were also commissioned to film the event across the week creating a series of online videos to promote TRENZ 2019.
Seamless, safe and secure
Satellite were briefed to streamline the health and safety induction process for the 200+ contractors onsite for the event build the week prior to TRENZ 2018. Using the Satellite Tag mobile companions, we converted the extensive TRENZ Health & Safety induction into a simple-to-follow mobile quiz, scheduling personalised text messages to encourage all contractors to complete their induction prior to arriving onsite.
To ensure a safe and secure event build environment, Satellite implemented access control rules on the security entry scanners to prompt a warning if the contractor had not completed their induction.
Registered by RFID
Satellite also designed and supplied the TRENZ 2018 acrylic badges, with built-in RFID chips to work with our registration software and hardware. This provided a seamless registration process for contractors and delegates alike, with minimal processing time required.
As an additional security measure, Satellite developed a mobile app that was integrated to work with the registration platform and entry scanners. This meant any registration staff could use the app to take ID photos of all delegates and contractors. Once scanned by security, the photo and any access restrictions would be prompted on the security scanner.
TRENZ was an extremely successful event and a great example of Satellite Tag and its myriad of tailored applications and capabilities in action. We can’t wait to get back on board with TRENZ in 2019 and bring even more innovation to the event.
