NFC Badges Will Be Used at 2014 CES

2014CES-NFC-badges-rfid-blogAttendees at this week’s 2014 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas will be using NFC-enabled badges to exchange business credentials and retrieve product information from other NFC devices as well as from posters displayed by exhibitors.

The NFC tags in the badges are supplied by Smartrac, use NXP’s Mifare DESFire EV1 chips and are being deployed in partnership with ITN International, the show’s official registration and lead retrieval supplier.

“Year after year, CES sees the introduction of the latest consumer technologies,” says the Consumer Electronics Association’s Karen Chupka. “We are excited to use one of our exhibitors’ products for our registration system, and bring a more personalized experience to every attendee.”
