Zenus, a leader in machine intelligence and face recognition solutions for the event industry announces a key partnership with GO WEST 2020. Only in its third year, GO WEST has already become one of the fastest growing, premier events designed by event professionals for event professionals. GO WEST 2020 will be hosted at the Edmonton Convention Centre, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from 19th-20th January 2020.

“We are excited to work with GO WEST 2020 and deploy our full suite of solutions,” said Panos Moutafis, Ph.D., CEO and co-founder of Zenus. “It is one of the most vibrant shows for event organisers from across Canada, USA, and Europe. We cannot wait to attend and exchange forward thinking ideas with hundreds of event professionals.”

“Use of face recognition in events is here,” said Brent Taylor, executive producer of GO WEST and president of Timewise Event Management. “Let’s embrace it and have those conversations around privacy and appropriate use. We are thrilled to engage with industry leader Zenus to showcase these technologies to our community of event professionals.” 

Attendees will experience a variety of face recognition technologies at GO WEST 2020 and will be able to explore the possibilities for its use.
