Boosting visitor interest and involvement with exhibitors: UMD's RFID-ActiveFrame made its debut at the Australian Direct Marketing Association (ADMA) forum at the Sydney Convention Centre on 16 & 17 August 2011 as part of Centryc Solution's Customer Interaction Management service.

The RFID-ActiveFrame incorporates two contactless RFID readers, WiFi communications and a software customisable embedded controller behind a versatile A4 poster clip-frame. The frame was used to display printed marketing collateral encouraging registered users to record their interest in a particular stand by touching an RFID wristband against defined areas on the frame.

The system works by transmitting in real-time the ID of the wristband via WiFi wireless communications to Centryc's internet based service which, for example, prompts users via SMS to visit a random selection of stands.
