“As you can imagine, with an event of this size, the ability to visually identify authorized members of the working media from organizations all over the world can be a challenging task. This year Idesco really ‘stepped up to the plate’ to provide us with the latest oversized credential printer technology to make media credentials that are larger than our typical ID badges so that they are more prominent and easier to read.” states James Ferguson, Director of Security for Little League Baseball and Softball, Inc.
With thousands of people attending this esteemed event that takes place over the course of 10 days with 2 phases, it is important to have security measures in place.
