Valencia, CA (Oct. 15, 2014) PDC, the global leader of innovative identification solutions, will demonstrate its RFID solutions, including two new product lines, at the 2014 World Waterpark Association Symposium and Trade Show in booth #500, from October 28 to 29, at the Paris Hotel Convention Center, in Las Vegas. PDC’s RFID solutions help waterpark operators boost revenue and improve the guest experience through cashless purchasing, electronic access control, keyless locker entry, and social media integration.
PDC will showcase two new lines of RFID wristbands including rewearable, PDC Smart® Stretch wristbands, which are made of ultra-comfortable polyester material that stretches to comfortable fit varying wrist sizes. PDC Smart® Stretch Wristbands are waterproof, removable, and reusable, making it ideal for multi-day use or season pass credentials. The band can be customized with full-color, dye-sublimation printing inside and outside the band, transforming every guest’s wrist into a mini billboard of free advertising.
Also debuting at WWA is the PDC Smart® SureImage® Wristband. Each wristband contains an RFID tag laminated between tear-resistant polypropylene material with a tamper-evident adhesive closure, making them ideal for single-use applications. Custom full-color printing and variable data printing capabilities provide an extra layer of security, ensuring these wristbands are counterfeit-proof.
“When guests wear RFID wristbands instead of hassling with a wallet, they are able to make instant purchases with just a quick flick of the wrist, greatly boosting impulse spending,” said Robin Barber, Vice President of Leisure & Entertainment for PDC. “The nation’s leading waterparks have chosen and continue to benefit from PDC as their RFID wristband supplier including Great Wolf Resorts, Water World, Schlitterbahn, and Cedar Fair’s Wild Water Kingdom.”
PDC will also demonstrate its self-service, PDC Smart® Wristband Kiosk that prints and dispenses RFID wristbands. The PDC Smart® Wristband Kiosk enables patrons to purchase admissions, load funds onto their RFID wristbands, rent lockers or tubes, and more. The kiosk helps reduce labor costs by eliminating the need for additional staff, and speeds up transactions to reduce lines and wait times.
