After all the pre-planning and excitement leading up to an event comes to an end, the first on-site experience for the guests is registration. This critical 2-minute experience sets the tone and has a lasting impact on the registrants' impression of the event. We take great care to ensure that registration gets the attention and orchestration it needs to start everyone off with a smile!
The first element to ensuring success is making sure the actual check-in area is easy to find using great directional signage and event branding. Once at registration, all guests are greeted by a friendly face for a seamlessly electronic check-in. No more messy lists! Just a quick tap of a button and all critical guest information is pulled up.
At a recent event, we designed custom laminate badges with clean graphics setting an elevated and professional tone for the event that were also functional. Using color coding, guests were easily identified by their badges as being 1 of 11 different types of guests attending the meeting (that's a lot of designations!). To highlight the fact that guests were coming from all over the country, we were sure to include the guests' business location. These little details served as a great networking tools throughout the event. The feature that made the badges extra special was the guest's pre-printed personalized agenda on the back. This meeting was comprised of over 25 breakout and general sessions. With a complex merge of over 60 data fields, everyone was relieved to know their personal event guide was just a lanyard away!
Getting started on the right foot is always important. For this recent client, a friendly face, a seamless check-in, and a custom badge (with custom swag!) makes for the perfect welcome.
