FABTECH Uses Alternative Registration Tools to Process Attendees

March 20, 2018

FABTECH is North’s America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event. In 2016, there were more than 31,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors. The show provides a convenient one-stop shop venue where you can meet with world-class suppliers, see the latest industry products and developments, and find tools to improve productivity, increase profits, and discover new solutions.

Managing registration with so many attendees is a major challenge. The goal was to reduce registration lines and quickly move attendees and exhibitors onto the show floor. With so many people needing their badges at the same time, strategies were needed to set up alternative check-in and registration areas.
