Using Name Badges Effectively At Conferences

A name badge or label is a very important part of any business meeting, conference or seminar. Used correctly, name badges can help people better communicate and build business relationships. The main argument behind this is that people talk to each other more often when they see other people's names and which company they work for or where they are from. 

When ordering your custom name badges from the printer for your next event, there are a few things to keep in mind for best results.

First, remember that the main purpose of naming tags is to make it easier for people to meet and feel comfortable with people they don't know. Reputation badges will also be clearly designed and labelled so that other people from other events cannot attend your event unnoticed. 

A badge with your name can also contain a scannable code. This way you can keep track of who is in which part of the conference. Some trade shows scan exhibitor names so they have a clear list of attendees. You can then send follow-up emails to people who were there on certain days and track people who haven't arrived at the event yet.

Second, the name tag should be designed by your printer so that it is very easy to read from a few meters away. If someone has to bend over and narrow their eyes to read a badge, the badge needs to be redesigned. 

You will need to instruct your printer to have the following information on your name:

  • Name and surname

  • The position of the position held

  • Company name

  • City, state, state

The information about the name should be very broad as it is the most important information that will encourage people to get closer to each other and talk.

Third, remember that there are many different types of names you can order from your printer.
