February 2nd was particularly busy for Intellitix execs as they accepted invitations to speak on panels relating to RFID on both sides of the Atlantic on the same day.
Intellitix chairman Serge Grimaux was a guest speaker on a panel entitled Producing Successful Festival Environments at Pollstar Live! In Los Angeles, joining panelists including Glastonbury Festival’s Michael Eavis, Skip Paige from Coachella and Insomniac’s Pasquale Rotella.
Just a few hours earlier at the Event Production Show in London, European head Steve Jenner joined Rob Langford from Isle of Wight Festival, Ticketmaster’s Andrew Newsam and IDC’s Steve Daly on a session discussing the rollout of RFID at UK music festivals.
Both sessions proved a highlight of their respective conferences, with Intellitix technology a key talking point. Repeating a statement he made at Eurosonic Noorderslag in late January, Glastonbury’s Eavis told the audience of music industry professionals that the Intellitix system was “even better than what we’ve got.”
