We were excited to launch our new lead-retrieval badge printing system at O’Reilly Media’s recent Where 2.0 conference.
Using Expectnation’s on-site check-in system, attendees were able to check themselves into the conference, receiving a credit card type badge, with their details encoded in the magnetic stripe.

If you’re interested in Expectnation’s on-site solutions, whether for plain card badges or magnetic stripe cards for lead retrieval, please get in touch.
Check-in and lead retrieval systems are available as an add-on to any of our regular packages.
If you’re interested in the technical details, read on!
We used two Mac mini servers, running Ubuntu Linux, as the satellite check-in systems. These machines stay in sync with the main Expectnation server over the internet, but enable check-in to continue should the network become unavailable.
Kiosks and printers can be dedicated to particular uses, e.g. exhibitor or speaker check-in, or available for general attendee use.
