Another high profile Conference incorporates Beams as a Service (BAAS) from Event Presence. Colleagues from around the world are scheduled to participate as attendees and in panel discussions. A new feature created by EP allows conference attendees to scan a dynamic QR code to obtain detailed information about the person on the Beam.

Beam Pilots can now socialize at events by filling out their Beam Profile. When a person scans the QR code on the Beam, select details about the Pilot are provided automatically to the scanning device.

As the conference developed individuals from around the world customized their Beam according to their personal preference.  This allowed the conference associates to quickly determine what country or organization the Pilot originated from.
