Etherlive will revolutionise communications and accreditation at The Royal Windsor Horse Show, home to the Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

Organisers have named Etherlive, whose upcoming appointments include the London 2012 Media Centre and WOMAD Festival, as official technology provider for the event, which takes place from Wednesday 9th May to Sunday 13th May at The Home Park in Berkshire.

With a significant focus on security for one of 2012’s most high profile events, crew and event management at The Royal Windsor Horse Show will benefit from the tracking capabilities afforded by Eventband. Selected partners, VIPs and crew will be issued with contactless Radio Frequency ID cards which will be used to gain access to secure parts of the site.

The Metropolitan Police have stipulated that a secure method of entry be used for the event, uniquely issued to each partner with their photo and name.  Working in partnership with HorsePower Etherlive has developed a custom online accreditation system which allows attendees to register for access before the event through an online portal from where organisers can approve access rights and validate credentials. This system then integrates to the existing Windsor system where the final approval process will take place.

Steve Birnage, Account Director of Etherlive said: “Eventband will simplify the event management process at the Royal Windsor Horse Show and we are delighted to roll out the package at such a prestigious event. The crew accreditation system comes into its own at events where security and evacuation procedure is paramount, and is ideal for  high profile occasions involving many on-site partners.”
