Expo.01 ticket

The original plan was to realise Expo.01 as a cashless event. Those responsible for Expo.01, in co-operation with various partners, planned a new type of ticket system for this purpose. The data carrier was to serve on the one hand as a ticket with the corresponding access authorisation and on the other as a means of payment. In addition, each data carrier (the size of a credit card) was to be unique. To this end, a project-specific process was developed that combined digital design, digital equipment and digital printing in a single online process.  

However, public acceptance of cashless events was not yet given in the run-up to Expo.02, which is why the project was not realised.
