Smart e-badge trial NCCC 1 product revise | National Convention Centre Canberra

July 9, 2020 - The National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC) was home today to the first in-person social distancing technology trial using a smart e-badge developed by events industry experts at Harry The Hirer.

Social Distancing Technology Trial in Canberra first of its kind in industry

The smart e-badge consists of a small disc attached to an event lanyard and alerts users through discrete vibration when social distancing is less than 1.5 metres. It then resets once delegates apply the 1.5 metres distancing guideline.

The successful trial at the National Convention Centre Canberra (NCCC) was the first of its kind for the industry. The technology was tested during a Canberra Region Tourism Advisory Forum briefing attended by ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr, Canberra Airport Chief Executive Officer Stephen Byron, Australian Hotels Association ACT General Manager Anthony Brierley, and 90 tourism industry representatives
