Responsible for the accreditation and control of 34,000 people and 4,000 vehicles, Técnica Comercial Vilsa S.A. (T.C. Vilsa) could not afford any mistakes during its mission to provide secure physical access control and attendee registration for the 2012 G20 summit in Los Cabos, Mexico.

With the knowledge from thirty years of experience in providing high profile security, T.C. Vilsa turned to Magicard to provide the identity badging for the hundreds of delegates and thousands of support staff who would attend the three day event.
Reliability, robust construction, card quality and integrated security features made Magicard printers a standout choice for quickly issuing identification credentials during the event.

T.C. Vilsa secures events like the G20 summit with innovative technology and a highly trained staff known for their superior service and commitment to probity and efficiency. These events require absolute coordination in security on the ground, sea and air.

Easy integration allowed T.C. Vilsa to utilize Magicard printers alongside systems from 11 different technology partners and complete its mission in three days with no major downtime or security breaches. These systems included online identity verification, biometric facial recognition, and access control. Integration, reliability, and success in high-stakes environments are not new achievements for Magicard printers. Manufactured for over 18 years by Magicard, each unit is designed and built in a military-certified secure facility in Weymouth, England.

Collaboration between engineers, designers and a production team working together in the same building keeps quality high and development cycles short. Because of this, Magicard is trusted by hundreds of federal, state, and local agencies as well as thousands of companies globally to issue millions of secure identification badges every year.
