With event-specific ticket permissions, Swapcard handled the rules and access of two simultaneous events.

The Dubai World Trade Centre used Swapcard to support GITEX for the event's 39th year, which hosted more than 100,000 people. Thanks to Swapcard, attendees and exhibitors from two parallel events confirmed 4,508 meetings and exhibitors gained a lot of new contacts. The myriad meetings and connections were driven by Swapcard's AI and its simple scanning feature.

As a two-part event, Swapcard also helped enforce specific conference rules: standard ticket holders could not cross to the next event but VIPs were able to seamlessly cross back and forth between both programs — all thanks to Swapcard's in-app rules.
