Around 50 business women attended the event and learned about how QR codes are generated, the innovative ways in which they can be used and how codes can be personalised for maximum impact.  IT Futures Marketing Officer Abi Redmond said ‘It was a fantastic opportunity to engage with local businesses and showcase the technologies available to them.  Although QR codes have been around for a while, it is refreshing and exciting to see so many local businesses taking the time to adopt the knowledge and the technology to be able to use them effectively within their business practices.
