Accreditation for the ATP Challenger Tennis Tournament "Koblenz OPEN 2023

The ATP Challenger Tournament finally celebrates its comeback after 3 years! 

From 29.1.2023 to 5.2.2023, the CGM Arena in Koblenz was once again transformed into a top-class tennis arena.

The organiser of the Koblenz OPEN, the company Inside Out UG, commissioned the specialist for accreditation systems, the company cards-x GmbH from Mettmann, to supply the online accreditation software "CARDS-X-CCESS" as well as large-format badges and card printers for this event. 

The tournament will receive the complete accreditation solution developed by cards-x GmbH on loan for the duration of the event. Our ECP-XL event card printer processes pre-printed cards in the special format of 124 x 87.80 mm. "We were convinced by the advantages of the large-format card and the fast output on site," says Lars Zimmermann, Tournament Director Koblenz Open. "The large card offers a much easier visual check for our security staff. At the same time, the card has much more space for additional information, such as directions to the event site or placement of sponsors and advertising." Accreditations for VIPs, players, staff and media representatives were recorded and issued before and during the tournament. 


The online software solution "CARDS-X-CCESS" was used for the recording, administration and creation of the badges. This software is a cloud solution and can be used independently of the operating system and terminal device. 

For the first time, the badges for this tournament were pre-printed with our special INKJET printing machine. With this technology, up to a certain number of cards, it is no longer necessary to have the badges pre-printed in the costly offset process.  This saves time and money!!! "We are convinced that this technology will become established for smaller events" says Norman Kämmerling, Managing Director of cards-x GmbH. "With the INKJET technology you are very flexible and can react quickly to the customer's wishes".
