History Making: Singapore’s First MDRT Day 2018

EventNook Checks-In Over 1,000 Guests in Under an Hour at the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) Day 2018 with Fast and Seamless Onsite Badge Printing.

EventNook is honoured to have been a part of Singapore’s first MDRT Day on the 28th of August 2018. The prestigious event was held at the Singapore Expo Hall, ushering in over 1,500 guests. With distinguished speakers such as Dr Mary Chen, Jim Pittman and Eric Feng, guests were invited for a full day event learn from and share their experiences with fellow finance professionals. The EventNook Team is proud to have supported MDRT Day 2018 and we have also learned invaluable lessons from our experience serving a reputable client in a big scale event. 

Our goal for this project was to enable the streamlining of registration for both the online and onsite experience. Attendees were redirected to EventNook’s platform from the main event site through an embedded ticket widget. After making their payment online, they received their unique QR code which would then be their entry ticket during the event. We aimed to create a seamless check-in experience for the guests, minimizing queuing times and increasing efficiency through fast and easy check-in. 

On the 28th of August, our customer success team headed to the Singapore Expo Hall for the set-up of the equipment and prepared to receive the guests. To handle the volume of guests for the event, 12 check-in counters were set up. Each printer was paired with 2 iPads to allow for greater efficiency. Registration began at 7.30am and over the next hour, over 1,500 guests arrived and checked-in. With their QR codes ready before approaching the counters, scanning was done quickly and efficiently. Their name badges were printed on demand and placed in their plastic holders before being passed off together with an event goody bag. 

Here is how we check in over 1,000 people in within 45 minutes and average check-in and badge printing takes 2 seconds.

We would like to congratulate the organisers of MDRT Day 2018 for the success of their first event in Singapore. We appreciate the opportunity given to work alongside all of you and to deliver a smooth and easy registration process for an event of this scale.
