When planning a meeting or event, there are lots of important details to track: venue, food, transportation, attendees, and more. With so many
details to look after, it can be easy to forget one. Unfortunately, many event planners consider IDs an afterthought, yet
event ID badges are
an important part of a successful event. Incorporating ID badges into the early stages of event planning can save you both time and money.
Save Money on Custom Lanyards. Popular at events, custom lanyards enhance the attendee experience. When planning an event,
consider ordering your custom lanyards early in the planning process. Ordering
lanyards early will increase your options since some low cost custom lanyards require a 4-6 week production time.
Before you place the order for your custom lanyards, take time to think about the
appropriate lanyard attachment for your event. Consider the types of activities you have planned for attendees and whether or not a
breakaway feature is important.
Save Time with Data Setup. When you design your event ID badge early in the planning process, you're able to collect attendee data to
accommodate the badges. If you know what information you want to display, you can organize the information accordingly. For example,
you can create separate columns for first and last name, instead of grouping them together in your spreadsheet. This will save you time
when you're ready to print the event ID badges!
Save Time at Registration. When you have all your ID badges complete ahead of your event, you'll be able to make the registration
process fast and efficient for event attendees. Organize the completed badges so they will be easily accessible when registering attendees.
Also be sure to pack ID badges in a travel case that is easy to transport
and won't move your badges out of order.
By incorporating your event ID badge early into the event planning
process, you'll not only save time and money, but you'll save yourself stress, too!
