Beacons at ASNC2019
If you are attending ASNC2019 in Chicago, you may notice a small rectangular object on the back of your badge. The object is a beacon, a small wireless device that broadcasts a unique signal using Bluetooth Smart technology, which can be read by receivers located in the session rooms, networking areas, and Expo Hall. Every session room within the Chicago Marriott Downtown will be set up with receivers to track attendee movements in and out of sessions. The beacons will also allow us to facilitate the credit claiming process. The wearable beacon technology will help us make our Annual Scientific Session better, and understand what works and what does not. From recent surveys, we learned that attendees want a more personalized experience. Using beacon technology is a sophisticated way to enhance our attendees’ experience. We have partnered with TurnoutNow to employ their wearable beacon technology and data analytics to provide us with this level of detail. TurnoutNow does not copy, store, or release any of our data, so it’s the most secure solution. Review our Privacy Policy, which outlines how and when your data is shared.
