NEW: the smart IFA ticket using a QR code
As part of its mobile marketing campaign, IFA is now offering visitors ticket purchases using a QR Code. QR stands for “quick response“. A two-dimensional QR barcode contains information which a smartphone can read. The user’s phone decodes this information and displays it. Following payment the ticket shop sends a 2-D code to the customer’s smartphone. At IFA this code is scanned at the entrance and the visitor is admitted. Billboards and advertising through special channels are promoting the use of QR codes.
