5 Great Uses for Badges

Name badges are more than a “Hello” sticker with a name written in magic marker.

Here are five great uses for RegOnline badges:

1) Add a bar code or QR code to your badges.

A bar code is useful for onsite check-in.  It is also helpful for both event organizers and attendees to scan bar codes in order to exchange virtual business cards.

A QR code is an excellent tool for attendees to learn more about an event. It stores additional information without taking up space, and can be scanned easily from any smartphone through downloadable apps such as Red Laser (iphone) and QRDroid (Android). You can configure a QR code through the RegOnline badge tool.

2) Unique Indentifier

Use a badge as a unique identifier for attendees ! Incorporate attendee ID numbers on a badge for VIP or regular sessions, auctions and more.

3) Badges are a Time Saver

In recent releases, we made enhancements to our badge printing process. Now badges print faster, allowing an event organizer to spend less time printing and more time on other important things.

4) Badges Can be More

Use the custom fields enabled for badges to create certificates, or use the same information as a ticket to get into an event.

5) Lead Retrieval

RegOnline, through a partnership with Swiftium, provides scanning services for lead retrieval. If organizing a large event with exhibitors, provide them the option of renting a Blackberry scanning device to get attendee information. The scanned info is stored in a secure database and is accessible after the event. This service is perfect for getting quality leads from an event. *

Get your bike on!

This post is the second in a series of RegOnline experiences from onsite events.

Last fall, some members of the RegOnline team went onsite to observe a unique event. It was a showcase of all things bicycle, from buying to selling to trading of bikes and parts. The event attracted hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees.

Although registration had been set up online beforehand for both attendees and exhibitors, only a small percentage signed up in advance. The day of the event, volunteers were tasked with selling tickets and manning the will call station for those that signed up previously.  There was only one paper copy used to check in will calls. On the convention floor, volunteers helped exhibitors to their booths, and took care of many outstanding tasks manually.

While the event was unique, there was a lot to be taken from this experience. Needs vary, and it was clear that there were a few simple things that we could have done in order to help the process. RegOnline has since expanded service offerings, and many of our new additions  would be helpful to a similar situation.

We now have mobile check in functionality, which allows for easy check in through Apple and Android based devices. That way all last minute updates are available, eliminating out of date lists and frustration. We now have an entire system dedicated to Lead Retrieval, which is easy to use and implement in order to generate and grow your customer base directly from events. Additionally, we are in development of many other technologies to help events run smoothly and more efficiently.

Stay tuned for the end of the week, as we continue the conversation of what we learned from being onsite.  And as always, leave us a note about your experiences onsite…we are anxious to hear!

We’ve heard from a lot of organizers about increasing the value they provide to exhibitors onsite. If this sounds familiar, then we have something you’ll be interested in.

The solution is a Blackberry lead retrieval device that you can provide to exhibitors, designed to assist with lead data capture, lead qualification and sales follow-up processes. The device captures data quickly and easily, and synchronizes leads in real-time within a secure website. Users are able to log in online and get up-to-the-minute access to their leads. It’s fast, easy, and dependable and a great way to provide greater onsite capability to your exhibitors.
