Guest registration was managed with digital event software and NFC wristbands to check entry permission and then grant access for validated conference participants. The challenge was to organize multiple access points who were all equipped with dedicated hardware for registration and check-in operations. The NFC wristbands were embossed with the conference’s slogan A Commitment to Europe and blended in perfectly with Mayam’s elegant colour concept.

Our Approach

High Tech, High Touch

Secure Entry Control

Each wristband was pre-encoded with the participant’s access credentials, allowing for quick verification at multiple entry points equipped with dedicated hardware. This efficient system ensured that only validated conference attendees could access the various meeting venues, thereby maintaining the integrity of the event’s security protocols.

Enhanced Guest Experience

By integrating NFC technology we streamlined the registration and check-in processes, minimizing wait times and enhancing security. The NFC wristbands were designed to complement the sophisticated aesthetic of the event, blending perfectly with the elegant color concept.

Badge-Free Zone

Embossed with the conference’s slogan A Commitment to Europe, the wristbands not only served the functional purpose as registration and check-in tool but also acted as a stylish accessory reinforcing the event’s core theme and fostering a sense of unity and purpose among the participants.


The Salzburg Summit successfully integrated NFC wristbands to enhance security, streamline access, and elevate the attendee experience, perfectly aligning with the event’s sophisticated aesthetic and thematic message. This innovative approach facilitated seamless networking and efficient check-ins, reinforcing the Summit’s commitment to European collaboration and global dialogue.
