VIII International Forum "Arctic: Today and the Future" was held in St. Petersburg in the largest russian congress and exhibition center "Expoforum" from 5th to 7th December. Proxy Centre completed a complex of works on accreditation of participants of the Forum and access control to the venue.
The company has fully taken on the technical and personnel support of the accreditation process. Around 22 workplaces of accreditation operators equipped with the necessary equipment and software were created. The company's specialists have developed a module of online accreditation and registration of participants, which was synchronized with the existing database of Forum participants. Employees of Proxy Centre LLC hired and trained accreditation operators in advance. During the Forum, Proxy Centre specialists and involved employees met event guests, promptly issued accreditation badges and packages of participants, provided comprehensive information about the event. The accreditation point has been working for three days - from 4th to 6th December, more than 1,500 people were accredited at the Forum.
The company organized two access control lines using turnstile systems for people with different types of accreditation in Pavilion H of the convention-and-exhibition centre Expoforum. All seven access control points were equipped with RFID readers, which made the control procedure quick and efficient.
