The global pandemic kept theaters, stadiums, and arenas largely empty for months. Attempts to host safer, socially distanced events (when not totally banned) met with mixed success. The availability of vaccines will allow for life to slowly return to normal. But even after the vaccine, attendees likely have developed an enduring and increased sensitivity to safety and hygiene. Illustrated by real-life examples, this session illustrates how NFC and its touchless operation can offer value for the event business – now more than ever.

This NFC Open Forum session features Bruno Carpreau from Mastercard, Johannes Lippert of SKIDATA, and Ursula Schilling from Infineon Technologies AG. It originally took place live online Tuesday, June 22, 2021.
