2014 CES Badges to Feature NFC

In a move that follows the apparent success of NFC badges at Google's 2013 I/O developer conference, the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) have announced that badges for the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show will include NFC technology.

Google's 2013 I/O conference used NFC-enabled badges to allow attendees to quickly gain access to sessions, while also allowing for a more streamlined networking experience.

The CEA claim that the new badges for 2014 "will result in shorter lines, more badge functionality and greater ease of use for attendees and exhibitors", which could indicate greater functionality in addition to check-ins and credential storage.

CES 2014 will run in Las Vegas between from the 7th to the 10th of January.
