Footfall at exhibition centre

98% Footfall and occupancy accuracy for exhibition centre

The Business Design Centre (BDC) – London’s conference and exhibition venue – has increased the accuracy of its footfall and occupancy monitoring by switching to a video system from Retail Sensing.

Previously the BDC used infra-red beam breakers to count people. We set up a week’s trial of our Video Turnstile system, so the company could compare the accuracy of the CCTV set-up against the infra-red beams. Following live video verification, the Video Turnstile system was proved to reach an accuracy of 98% across the full entrance to the conference building. The Business Design Centre duly installed the video counters to provide real-time occupancy and footfall figures.

The occupancy count is accessible to all members of staff. By logging into a BDC Head Office computer any employee can see how many people are in the building at the moment.

The Video Turnstile real-time count and footfall data is now helping the Business Design Centre to run much more efficiently and be critically managed to get the optimum use of the centre.
