NFC Badge Identity Validation – New for Mobile World Congress 2014
Further to the success of the NFC Badge in 2013, customers of Bouygues Telecom, Bharti Airtel, Dialog, Etisalat, KT Corp., Orange, Tata and Telstra can further streamline their entry to Mobile World Congress by participating in a trial that uses their mobile to confirm their identity. In this trial, the badge validation process uses simple information that is held by an operator, such as name and telephone number to confirm the attendee’s identity and validate the NFC badge before the attendee arrives at the event. This pre-validation of the NFC Badge via mobile will eliminate the need for having to show identity documents for entry into Fira Gran Via.
For more information on NFC Badge Identity Validation, please click here.
Photo ID checks will be performed when you collect your badge and every time you enter the venue thereafter*. All attendees are required to carry an original Photo ID document with them at all times. For more information on security procedures and accepted types of Photo ID, please click here.
*NFC Badge users are only required to show an official Photo ID once to validate their photo and subsequently avoid repeatedly having to show Photo ID at access.
