Bride Scan

BrideScan is the ultimate mobile app you will need as an Exhibitor at the Arizona Bridal Show. 
You will receive an email from Bridescan about 2 weeks before the show.

Simply follow the link provided in the email and create your profile. In the description you can include links, but you must use the complete url address. 

Just before the show starts, open Bridescan and take a picture of your booth with your staff. This picture will be transferred with your barcode and is scanned. 

You will receive your printed barcode before the show begins to display in your booth.
As brides walk the floor they may choose to scan your barcode. When they do - their info will be swapped with yours. Their info will be immediately available on your app.

After the show you can review your scans on your phone or you can open www.BrideScan.com on your desktop and download your scans to a file on your desktop.

If you have any questions regarding BrideScan - call Fred Jacob at 865-531-3941 or email him.
If you were an Exhibitor in the January show - your barcode is the same.
BrideScan is available on both iOS and Android mobile devices.
