We made it! After two years of a global pandemic and events hosted virtually, in-person events are now picking back up, and it’s more important than ever to stand out. From the location to the food and drinks, schedule, and website. Every little detail is essential, and nothing should be left out.

Today, we’re bringing you a dose of inspiration with these five great examples of event badges.

No worries, you don’t need design experience to create badges, as tools like Conference Badge also offer event badge templates to help you get started. Let’s dive in.

What is an event badge?

An event name badge is a badge displayed around the neck or on clothes, showing the attendees’ names and other useful information. A badge can be a solid conversation starter and an essential part of an event branding!

An event badge should include:

  • Attendees’ name
  • Event’s logo
  • Date and/or location of the event

An event badge could include:

  • QR code
  • Sponsors logo
  • Attendees’ pronouns
  • Event’s social media

Event badge examples

Event technology has evolved so much in the past few years that we now can have speakers on zoom, virtual reality, and easily check-in with a simple iPhone. Event badge creation has come a long way from a white sticker and black pen.

There are many ways you can create conference badges online, print them yourself or have them shipped in time for the event. So if you’ve been tasked with badge creating and lack inspiration, look no further. Here are five badge examples.

For a corporate event

While thinking about making badges for a corporate event, event organizers know the importance of networking, facilitating business opportunities, and providing visibility to attendees and partners. This simple yet straight-to-the-point example has all the essential information you want on a badge: the organizer’s logo, the business the attendee represents, and of course, its name. In addition, it’s paired with a QR code/barcode, where attendees can be easily redirected to the schedule, website, or even a promo code/surprise.

For a school event

Are you hosting a high school reunion? Here’s an example of a custom event badge, perfect for this event. Make them fun by adding a former nickname that can be used as an icebreaker for conversations. You can also add a high-school picture or unique lettering. It’s time to get your creative hat out and think outside the box for this one.

School event badges

For a local conference

For this event, you want unique conference name badges that the badge holder will want to wear throughout the whole event. Design elements can include logos, colored background, and a fun, readable font. Make it very special by adding the event’s schedule on the back of the badge, so people always know what to expect next.

Conference event badges

For a trade show

Events like trade shows offer opportunities to gain visibility and make awesome business connections. Your attendees, speakers, and booth hosts will want to use their name tags as business cards, so you must design them with a ‘killer first impression’ in mind. Display their name and business as big as possible over a minimalist background.

For an event VIP pass

Event badges can also be used for VIP passes for a concert or meet and greet. Use a bigger badge format so people can proudly display the badge around their neck. Choose aesthetically pleasing colors that match the event, with the name in a readable, more prominent font.
