Bloomy is back with another round of exciting blogs for its readers. Hope the weather has been treating you well.
Earlier reading a couple of articles, Expo 2020 was something that caught my attention quite many times. The way preparations are taking place gave me goosebumps because surely this is not some ordinary event that is about to take place this time in the City of Gold (Dubai).
WONDERING ABOUT ITS LOCATION?
The site that has been finalized for this event covers a total of 438 hectares. Located in the south district of Dubai, its near the Al-Maktoum International Airport.
WHAT IS EXPO AND WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM DUBAI EXPO 2020?
If you somehow are not too familiar with what an Expo is. It is a fair where nations unite, an international bazaar where State’s take part to put on display their achievements. These can be scientific, industrial, technological or artistic. Whenever this event is to take place, hundreds of countries volunteered to host this BREATH-TAKING EVENT.
These exhibitions are usually thematic that are supposed to be based on grounds of humanity. Dubai’s proposition for that to be held in 2020 is known as CONNECTING MINDS, BUILDING THE FUTURE. The theme of EXPO 2020 recognizes the need to generate sustainable solutions to overcome global problems. You can imagine how huge would the event be by just knowing that an estimate of 25 million visitors are expected to come. This too for sure pops in one’s mind as to how will it all be managed?
Read More: MOBILE APPLICATIONS – WHY THE NEED?
In this fast-moving realm where everything seems to get easier or find a solution for itself within a glimpse, managing an event that too technological seems pretty challenging. Though, we are sure they are pretty well equipped themselves. With latest technologies such as Web, iOS and Android applications – things have gotten much uncomplicated. Also, mobile applications and the ones that have been recently launched, we believe will play a vital role in promoting this event.
How will that be possible? Let’s have a look on how applications will assist in different Expo 2020 activities.
1. FACIAL RECOGNITION APPS AND VISITOR TRACKING
25m is surely not a small number. Such huge crowd, one can for sure lose track. Above all with the challenging security issues, it cannot be taken lightly. How far can a coordinator or security manager go remembering faces that have registered for this event? Not much. But if we talk about Face Recognition Application, we assume this can lessen the burden to much extent.
For all those who have registered and with the images submitted, visitors can easily without a hassle enter the exhibitions premises ensuring all security checks have been made. On a lighter note, try not to lose much facial weight, incase the app fails to detect, it will not be possible for you to enter. Also, if you are volunteering for this event as a coordinator or supervisor, this can give you an edge on being hassle free from scanning each and every individual stepping in.
2. QR AND BARCODE SCANNER
Having passes being issued, you can expect some fraudulent activities too to take place. There can be fake pass issuance just for the sake of making money? But what if the original ones have a Bar/QR code embossed?
With the help of new features added that can scan Bar Codes or QR Codes, not only the authenticity of passes and beholder’s genuineness but these can also be the discount passes for who-knows-what lucky draws maybe?
3. EXPO 2020 EVENT APP
Sometimes it gets difficult to access to an events official website only to track what’s happening and what’s new. However, this application has solely been developed so that those who have interest can find no hassle in keeping themselves updated about what’s trending in expo 2020. It’s a peek-a-boo to what can one expect will happen at this major event of awesomeness.
4. TOUR AND TRAVELS
We know its going to be a lot of people stepping in for this event. And we also are aware that accommodation and travels will be at their peak. Applications like booking.com etc. won’t only be the helping guide while looking for cheaper flight details or where can one rent a room out, but also can one explore the nearest spot that will not take you long reaching this site. We know the excitement would be killing if you had to wait for long.
5. MAPS/LOCATION GUIDES
Even if you have been residing in supposedly a nearby district or city, let’s say Sharjah or Abu Dhabi, Google Maps or any other location identifying app can guide you straight to the venue. Also, not being aware of location is no more a hassle as Navigator/GPS is always to the rescue.
These are certainly not the ONLY applications that will help or prove out to be useful for activities taking place at expo 2020 but a lot of other Android and iOS apps where conveyance etc. will also be needed, these will play a significant role and so will many others.
In App Experts we have our research on this going on. Perhaps we will come up soon with another blog that will have more insights about Expo 2020. Till then, if you have any applications that came to your mind in all this while and has been skipped by us, how about letting us know about them?
