Festival of Identity invites you to their event

Connecting with Each Other in a Post COVID-19 Touchless World

About this event

The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the globe, fundamentally altering social paradigms and prompting governments, businesses, and the public to seek new ways of interacting. In the “new normal” to follow, we expect the current emphasis on public health and safety to continue unabated, making the ability to travel, shop, and work without the use of tangible identification higher priorities. Technologies that support both frictionless access and social distancing measures are now more important than ever.

Join this presentation to learn how NEC can help businesses and governments adapt and return to public activity safely with a touchless, hygienic user experience. Real-world use cases will also be presented in this session.
