During the IFTEX Nairobi show, each exhibitor and attendee will be wearing a badge. All these badges have a different color that represents each category of visitor. This will allow the attendeed to readily identify who would be of interest for their business. The categories are: Exhibitor, Flower Buyer, Flower Grower, Press, Supplier, Visitor and Exhibition Staff.
Each badge has a barcode on it. This barcode is a PDF417 format and stores the information of the badge holder. By scanning the barcode with your smart phone you can ‘download’ a quick business (company name, first and last name, country & email address) card of the badge holder.
Barcode scanning apps are available free of charge at the App Store, Windows Store, Google Play or Blackberry World.Download any app that is able to scan PDF417 barcodes, however we recommend to download the free app of ‘Manatee Works’.
You can also use a 2D handheld barcode scanner connected to your laptop that is able to read the PDF417 format. You do not need an internet connection to read the barcode, but you do need internet in order to download the app. To avoid possible roaming charges it is adviced for visitors to download the app before the show.
