The Essential Guide To Name Badges For Conferences

Choosing the right name badges for conferences is essential. Event badges generally include the attendees name, job title and company as well as the organisers logo and event name. They are primarily seen as a crucial networking tool but they also serve as an attendees preliminary introduction, increase event security and help build brand identity. 

There are several considerations when deciding on the right badge for your event: 

  • type
  • size
  • event duration – one day or multi day
  • will it be reused?

So, which badge type should you choose for your next event? Here are 7 conference and event badge types for you to choose from.

If you’re looking for a durable badge that will last for multiple uses, then this badge type is ideal.
