2016 Africa Business Forum

Bloomberg Philanthropies and the U.S. Department of Commerce co-hosted the second 2016 U.S.- Africa Business Forum, a day focused on trade and investment opportunities in Africa. Invitees included American business leaders, African heads of government, and US-government officials, press, and staff.

In 2015, the Forum had experienced problems with access control and security. They needed a badging and check-in process that mitigated these issues within their budget.

What We Did:
• Built a custom registration page that collected personal information from all attendees, including photos
• Custom designed badges with attendee photos and distinctive colors for different groups
• Included scannable QR codes on the badges
• Increased security with a three point photo recognition system
• Provided access control with each badging type having distinct access permissions, scanners at multiple venue areas enforced these levels of access
