Every day in Australia thousands of events are taking place. Workshops and conferences are being held, trade shows are opening, schools are holding reunions, volunteer groups are hosting morning teas, community groups are running courses; the list is endless.
At each of these occasions people will be wearing name badges, either the ones they have been supplied by their employer or committee, or temporary ones supplied by the event organiser. If you are planning to hold an event then considering they type of name badge you will supply will definitely be on your to do list.
Name badges are an important way for people to connect with one other. They provide a passive introduction, display information related to the position the person holds within the company, and reduce the stress of having to rely on our memory to remember names. For workshops and community events temporary badges are an easy, low cost and flexible way to provide name tags to everyone who attends.
Badges can be attached by pin, alligator clip or magnet; alternatively they can be teamed up with a lanyard. Different coloured lanyards can be used to identify different groups within the event, for example sponsors, exhibitors and so on.
For your employees a permanent badge is a cost effective option as it will provide greater durability and differentiate your staff from your participants or the general public. Badges can also be used as a promotional tool. Button badges are quick and cheap to produce and can be used as a promotional giveaway to potential customers, or as an awareness raising campaign for your brand, product or service.
They can also be used as a way of attracting attention to your staff so the public know who to talk to about your promotion. No matter what event you are organising you are bound to need at least one style of badge.
