• Enhance and facilitate visitors experience in terms of interaction and functionality in an information-rich environment such as an exhibition show.
• Improve business communications and promotions within the exhibition and extend promotional effectiveness during and after the exhibition
• Assist and support exhibition management and operations by offering real-time location information of persons within the exhibition.
