International festival access to be enhanced

Regula, a developer of identity verification solutions, has partnered with Hungarian IT service provider Netpositive in a move that is aimed at transforming access to international music festivals.

The collaboration will see them switch to a mobile ID verification which makes Netpositive’s ticketing system “an even more valuable asset for event organisers”.

“Our collaboration with Netpositive not only showcases the importance of robust and efficient identity verification, but also sets a new standard for access management in large-scale events,” read a Regula statement.

“We are proud to contribute to creating safer and more efficient event experiences around the globe.”

Only one multi-purpose mobile device will be required instead of a multitude, including POS terminals and barcode readers.
