BRISBANE, Australia, July 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Multicard, a leading supplier of credential solutions, identity management and system integration services and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), announced today that it provided an integrated one-card event management solution for attendee registration, identification and session tracking at the 34th Australian Dental Association (ADA) Congress and industry exhibition, which was held this year in Brisbane, Australia. Multicard's comprehensive ID solution for ADA included badging equipment, smart ID cards, specialized applications for the event and management tools for use by vendors and show organizers.

Oscar van Elten, Federal Sales and Event Manager for ADA commented, "Multicard's event management solution allowed us to track who attended which sessions and for how long, as well as provide reports for all of the attendees so CPD educational credits could be recorded. The solution was very easy to work with, and Multicard supported people on-site if assistance was needed."

The biannual ADA event is the largest dental congress and industry exhibition in Australia, with more than 4,500 delegates and congress attendees and 120 exhibiting organizations in 2011.

For each attendee, exhibitor and show organizer at the event, Multicard provided a personalized, contactless ID card. The event cards were produced and distributed to participants as they confirmed their registration at the Multicard kiosk and included a photo of the card holder. The cards were then used to track participants' attendance at various educational seminars, to document continuing professional development credits and to gain admittance to additional events and social activities. The same card also could be used to capture and record data for the exhibitors, such as lead contact information and specific areas of product interest. To facilitate this feature, Multicard provided a custom application for the ADA event that can be easily adapted for other customers, according to Ross Head, Managing Director for Multicard Australia.
