GDPR & Badge Scanners at EU Events

Did your standard practices change in regard to badge scanning by exhibitors since GDPR was established?

As the organizer, are there provisions we must put in place outside of our GDPR compliant Privacy Policy when offering badge scanners to exhibitors at EU events? Do we need to ensure our exhibitors send opt-in emails or share their privacy policy if the attendee is voluntarily getting their badge scanned?

I’m wondering if there is anything I need to do differently with badge scanners since GDPR began?

There’s a very good article on the subject here: https://gdpr.report/news/2018/06/11/a-question-of-scanning-data-sharing-event-style/ The crux of it being that it’s a matter of interpretation.

Thank you!
