Networking with Name Tags

It’s the little things that count, right? And that applies to networking as well.

Andrew Rigie wrote “Why Name Tags And Other Little Details At Events Matter” for Forbes at little less than a month ago. And, we love what he said about networking!

The pressure is always high when you’re hosting a business networking event. Whether it’s a cocktail party for clients, an event to foster new business relationships, or a team building activity for your company, creating the right vibe and experience for attendees is a must. It doesn’t matter if you’re hosting a large event or small, it’s the little details that make a big difference.

wear a name to when networking and make it easier when you know everyone's name

Think for a moment. What does good networking look like? How do people act while networking? What are their attitudes? Most people would agree that a good networker is sincere, friendly and outgoing, supportive and a good listener. It isn’t just about staying in touch. It goes beyond that. A good networker is someone you want to trust and be friends with.

Providing high-quality name tags at networking events is a little detail that makes a big difference. They are worth the extra money. When we host networking events for hospitality industry professionals, we invest in high-quality name tags that stick to clothing using a magnet, instead of those with a pin. We’ve learned that people don’t always want to put a pin through their clothes and that using high-quality magnetic name tags elevates the perceived quality of the event.

Presentation Matters

badge holder cases and custom trays to display your name tags for your next networking eventRemember that people need to find their name tag easily. You don’t want several people milling around a table for too long before they locate their credentials and pass to enter your event. Take into consideration how they will be looking for their name. Are they use to finding their first name or last? And organizing names by a company makes it just the much more manageable.

Use our Badge Holder Cases and Display Trays to make your name tags easily accessible.

Utilize All of Your Tools

While badge holders and name tags are a great item to have on hand for any event, remember that you have other tools available. Try adding badge ribbons to each name tag for a custom look. Design ribbons to correspond with titles or positions at your next event.

While we have over 50 titles available as stock choices, custom ribbons are also available. Choose the color and title that best suits your need. And, if branding is needed, most of our ribbons can have a logo or graphic added.

People sometimes wince at the concept of name tags because they think they make the atmosphere cheesy or they’ve found ‘Hi My Name Is’ stickers stuck to the bottom of their shoes. But guests at our events make positive comments about the magnetic name tags, and they always want to take them home.

Name tags just fit the bill with networking. So, make your next event work even better with custom name tags and name badges.
