In the fast-paced world of conferences and events, optimizing efficiency and enhancing guest experiences are paramount to success. As technology continues to evolve, one innovation that has dramatically improved the way conference centers operate is Time-of-Flight (ToF) people counting. 

By using advanced sensor technology and sophisticated algorithms, ToF people counting has proven to be an indispensable tool for conference centers seeking to streamline operations, allocate resources effectively, and improve overall attendee satisfaction.

Precise visitor counting

Time-of-Flight people counting systems provide unparalleled accuracy in monitoring the flow of attendees within a conference center. Unlike traditional methods like manual counting or basic infrared sensors, ToF technology can precisely track the movement of people in real-time.

This level of precision enables conference organizers to obtain reliable data on the number of visitors, their paths, and dwell times in specific areas of the venue. By analyzing this information, event planners can gain valuable insights into attendee behavior and preferences, allowing them to tailor future events to meet the attendees’ expectations.

Efficient resource allocation

Conference centers typically have a vast array of resources to manage, from meeting rooms, exhibition spaces to catering services, washrooms, information desks and staff allocation. Time-of-Flight people counting assists to optimize the use of these resources by providing live data on the occupancy of different areas. With this information, venue managers can efficiently allocate staff, ensure optimal use of available spaces, and prevent overcrowding or underutilization. Consequently, resource allocation becomes more cost-effective and responsive, maximizing the return on investment for both organizers and attendees.

Personalized attendee experience

The success of any conference hinges on providing a personalized and seamless experience for each attendee. Time-of-Flight people counting helps achieve this goal by offering valuable data on attendee behavior. With insights into popular areas and sessions, organizers can optimize event layouts, design engaging content, and improve navigation to reduce congestion. Furthermore, personalized recommendations and wayfinding assistance can be delivered to attendees’ devices based on their real-time locations, enhancing their overall experience and satisfaction.

Data-driven decision making

In the rapidly evolving landscape of conferences and events, data-driven decision-making is imperative. Time-of-Flight people counting solutions provide event organizers with comprehensive data analytics that enable better understanding of event performance, attendee demographics, and preferences. Armed with these valuable insights, conference centers can make informed decisions to improve future event planning, marketing strategies, and operational efficiency.

Guaranteed privacy protection and GDPR compliance

For exhibition centers and congress centers, where privacy of images and data relating to both staff and visitors is an absolute requirement, a people counting solution based on Time-of-Flight technology guarantees privacy protection and GDPR compliance

By using a pulse of near infrared light and measuring the time it takes for the pulse to reflect off the environment and back to the sensor, Terabee people counters calculate depth information about their surroundings. A low resolution “depth map” where each pixel corresponds to a distance measurement is produced. This results in highly accurate people counting data (typically 95% for People Counting M to 98% accuracy for People Counting L-XL) that does not capture any distinguishing features or personal identifiable information (PII).

Terabee people counters have the capability to count people even in low light environments, when lights are dimmed, which is a benefit for congress centers and exhibition spaces.

People counting solutions for your congress center or exhibition hall

With efficient sensors and no need for external data processing, Terabee people counters provide access to accurate conference center footfall data at a fraction of the cost of other systems. The People Counting L-XL LoRa device utilises LoRaWAN, which eliminates the need to install PoE cables or connect to the main IT system. This makes it an ideal solution for historic buildings, as the LoRa-enabled solution avoids the need to retrofit Ethernet cabling, which can be both expensive and time-consuming.

With its ability to aggregate data taken from up to five separate sensors, the Terabee People Counter L-XL offers an easy to install and configure, discreet and highly accurate doorway counter for monitoring large doors, entrances and indoor gates. Alternatively, the People Counting M device, also LoRaWAN-enabled is suitable for standard doors and narrow corridors, such as for small meeting rooms in exhibition and congress centers.
