Fall is always a busy time for fielddrive. For the last three months, the whole team has been traveling back-to-back to more than 40 events around the world, including Shanghai, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Rome and London. Since September, we have delivered our live badging solutions to almost 40,000 attendees
All that travel, days of work and nights of jetlag have certainly paid off…
The De Bertjes Award
On 12th October, fielddrive won the highly-coveted De Bertjes Award under the category of International-scale Entrepreneur.
Fielddrive has a global service network with partners in the US, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain, the UK and Dubai. They work in their local markets using fielddrive software and hardware solutions to provide a consistent service across the world.
The De Bertjes Award (4th edition) is unique because the candidates themselves discuss each business in turn and vote on which one they think deserves the prize. Danny from fielddrive impressed all with “…The speed at which he has built a product and reached international scale,” said Bert Van Wassenhove, inventor of the Award.

Event Technology Awards
A few weeks later, fielddrive was shortlisted in two categories for the Event Technology Awards 2018: Best Attendee Management Technology and Best Technology Partnership with Zenus Biometrics… and we won the latter.
On 7th November, during the award ceremony at the glamorous Troxy Theatre in London, UK, fielddrive was delighted to pick up the Best Technology Partnership Award in collaboration with Zenus. We were recognized for our innovative service for the events sector: face recognition check-in.
It is the second Event Technology Award that fielddrive has won. In 2016, we came home with the Best Event Management Technology Award.
