Lanyards, name tags, reusable badges and even signs are useful tools for any conference or convention.
And the corporate event name tag is one detail that has been overlooked too much. For years people have been dealing with this awkward situation over and over again at event after event. As such, setting the stage is just as important as attending a conference or networking event. However, there are many roadblocks along the way.
Here’s the scenario:
“You’ve just arrived at your weekly, cookie-cutter networking event, and after walking up to the registration table, you proceed to search across a sea of identical plastic name badges with tiny print for the one with your name and company printed on it. You’ll affix this name tag to your shirt at the least awkward angle you can finagle, and proceed into a crowded room of people all arching their necks to scope out the people worth chatting to while trying not to stare at someone’s chest for too long. (And most likely many have chosen to position the name) tags to be hidden in the folds of jackets or flipped around entirely making them impossible to read. Good luck with that one.”
We’re here to offer that perfect solution. We offer a product that facilitates networking and promotes making those important connections. Our name tags and reusable badges are perfect for use with our lanyards and other fasteners.
For many people, the idea of wearing a name tag evokes the stale idea of the epic “Hello, my name is…” variety you might find at an awkward mixer or high school reunion. But a name tag is a valuable tool and, when used in fresh and creative ways, it can be an effective tool in helping people to interact with each other.
Still not convinced, here are some creative ways to use any name tag or reusable badge to help eliminate this awkwardness.
Try omitting titles and company names. Use this as an effort to associate people more with what they love to do, or excel at, than what they do for a living. Focus on the individual.
Move beyond the work domain. Try using reusable badges with a catch phrase or other conversation starter to get people to mingle.
Incorporate a theme. It doesn’t matter what the theme is, just as long as it is geared toward getting people flowing through the masses and making those important connections.
