Facing the future of live events with Verizon and Wicket

We’ve waited a long time to be able to safely return to the live events we love. By pairing Wicket’s access control software with the low lag times and cloud-based processing power of Verizon 5G Edge, we hope to help keep event lines—and the fan experience—moving forward.

  • Wicket facial recognition device

  • Convenience

    With Wicket’s facial recognition system, you will be able to use your face as your ticket by opting in, uploading a photo and linking your tickets—all from home. At the event, simply show your face to the sensor at the gate and enjoy the event.

“When I look at the future, I'm very excited at the idea that technology seems to be at the center of where experiences and interactions are going.”
