DSI Security has chosen Intellicheck’s state-of-the-art technology solution to prevent underage drinking at the 2023 Gulf Coast Jam Festival. DSI security officers safeguarding alcoholic beverage sales at the event will be equipped with Intellicheck’s mobile app to validate IDs to prevent the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors.
DSI Security’s Boyd Clark, Manager of Safety and Security for the popular music festival, said Intellicheck’s technology is more than a choice, it’s a must-have. “As industry leaders, we are committed to an unsurpassed level of safety and security for every event, and we are always mindful of the impact on the communities that host them. It requires that we constantly assess and respond to relevant trends to ensure we are prepared for any challenge. Increasingly, fake IDs have become so sophisticated it’s impossible to spot them using the traditional visual methods we have relied upon in the past. We recognized that we needed proven technology that would spot these fakes and, at the same time, could be quickly and easily used by our officers. That’s why we turned to Intellicheck.”
Gulf Coast Jam takes place in Panama City Beach, Florida, from June 1-4, 2023. Listed by Billboard as one of “The 10 Best Country Music Festivals,” the Gulf Coast Jam Presented by Jim Beam is the largest music event in the southeast. Headliners include Kenny Chesney, HARDY, Miranda Lambert, and Kane Brown, along with some 30 more artists playing during the festival.
Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis said the partnership delivers the best of both worlds. “We understand the challenges that come with technological advances being leveraged to create high-tech fake IDs that are readily and inexpensively available to young people. We work with law enforcement agencies nationwide, addressing these challenges every day. Using Intellicheck’s cutting-edge technology, DSI officers can accurately and rapidly validate the IDs of age-appropriate customers purchasing alcoholic beverages assuring quick service and avoiding long lines and delays while deterring the potential dangers that come with underage drinking.”
