Efficient management of large crowded events is always a challenge. Successful management of such events largely depends on the use of technologies. There are many business cases where the use of latest technology can vastly improve their management. In recent times, many types of identification and sensor devices, including RFID tags, have been developed. Such technologies, combined with appropriate backend database systems, can be used to improve the crowd and event management. Hajj, an annual pilgrimage to Mecca, is a very large and unique gathering, which attracts millions of pilgrims for two or more weeks. Despite tremendous advancement of technology and its availability, Hajj continues to be managed manually. There are many aspects of Hajj which are worth researching. The aim of this paper is to identify appropriate technologies which can be used to improve the management of large gatherings such as those of Hajj and Kumbh gatherings in India.
