This event marked the start of a great adventure, our company's launch. Since then, we have produced millions of cards for hundreds of large events such as: Formula 1, Obama's visit to Ottawa, OutGames, FINA, World Police and Fire Games, the Queen's visit to Canada, World Energy Congress, and many more. At the start of the year 2000, IDpack, as a product, had been sold in 29 countries, and even today, more than 15,000 computers are running IDpack 9.

Although, it was time for us, along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources towards supporting more recent technologies, so that we could continue to deliver greater and newer experiences to you.
