5 Products To Make Your IT Conference Run Smoothly

Conference attendees and conference hosts have the same motivation when it comes to events: to meet people, make valuable connections, and see those connections play out in their work life in the future. When the roster fills up, and hosts and attendees network all day long, it can be challenging to keep names, identification, and other pertinent details straight. Whether you’re a host keeping track of visitors, a visitor looking for help, or a company passing out business cards, Specialist ID can help conferences run smoothly. Here are five product recommendations to consider when hosting or attending an IT conference.

One-day Parking Permit

The first recommended product is geared towards the IT conference hosts. Depending on the conference location, you may be required to request a parking permit hanger for your guests, especially if the venue shares parking lot access to the public. These one-day permits allow a venue to keep track of who attends the conference and which vehicles are allowed in the parking lots. Plus, it helps reserve parking spots that would be otherwise occupied.

Don’t forget to pair your parking passes with the expiring timing cover as well. The covers identify which passes overstayed their one-day permission and come in boxes of 500, the same amount as a box of the parking passes above, so nothing goes to waste.

Volunteer Lanyard 

Conference hosts may find themselves recruiting volunteers to help with setup, guest management, and clean-up. To help guests identify your volunteers, consider a 10 pack of volunteer lanyards. Blank space in the middle lets the volunteers write their names and titles on the badges either in permanent or dry-erase markers. The laminated badge reveals the “Volunteer” lettering on both sides as well, so you don’t have to worry about the badge becoming unreadable if it flips around.

Vinyl Strap Clip

If you already own a badge or any form of identification that you want to make obvious to others, a strap clip is a simple alternative to badge reels or lanyards. The clip is small and easy to use, making it perfect for last-minute or multiple purchases. The strap also comes in many colors, such as blue, black, red, and green, so you can mix and match for variety. Clip the strap to your shirt, jacket, or pants, and forget it’s there until it’s time to take it off.

Black Credential Wallet

A lanyard wallet makes it easier to carry multiple cards. While one pocket openly reveals its content, the second pocket is hidden, should you prefer to conceal your ID. The holder can easily fit on a lanyard, badge reel, or just in your pocket like a regular wallet. This product is also perfect for IT conferences because pen straps are attached to the sides and can hold most writing utensils. This results in quick access for business cards, badges, and a pen entirely within one product.

Luggage Tag Holder

Our final recommendation focuses on your bags, computer cases, and equipment. Keep track of your luggage with our rigid plastic luggage tag holder so you can quickly identify and keep track of your property. The vinyl can hold badges, photos, business cards, or simple labels that identify luggage as yours. The 6-inch loop wraps around container handles, so you can see the tags as soon as you reach for the luggage. Plus, the product comes in a variety of colors, so you can pick your favorite for easy identification from afar.

Utilize these five products for a great IT conference, whether you’re the host or one of many guests. If you have any questions or need assistance with a purchase, contact Specialist ID online anytime. We’re always available to help.
