You want to get your registrants into your event as quickly and efficiently as possible. BUT you also probably want to know who's there (and, maybe, who isn't). That's what our unique PrintPod and ScanPod units do.

The fast and efficient way for visitors to collect their badge

PrintPods are freestanding, unattended badge printing stations. They are the fast and efficient way for visitors to scan a barcode and print their event badge. All they need for full operation is mains power and WiFi. Once in position, each can be set up in minutes.

The screens and units can be branded to suit the event. When an attendee's barcode is scanned, the PrintPod marks them on the event database as having attended.


PrintPod case study

The Haymarket Media Group chose our PrintPods for their Media360 event because they wanted a smooth, seamless badge collection and event entry experience along with live attendance figures for the organisers.

Marija Cvetkovic, Head of Event Operations for Haymarket Media Group said: "We had a great time using the new self-check in PrintPods. It was a really good experience – a fast and smooth entrance. The pods looked great, the printers are fast and sleek and people loved it."
