As a promotional products company, many of our clients come to us when they want some creativity injected into their events. Whether it’s with custom awards, swag bag items or embroidered apparel…we’re in the business of blowing our clients away with creative ways to incorporate product into events.

If you can’t tell, we’re loving QR codes right now. Here’s a re-cap of articles, if you need to get up-to-speed:

If you’re trying to wrap your head around ways to use QR codes at events, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s run through some attention-grabbing options:

  • Create Pre-Event Buzz: Using a QR code on a printed invitation is the perfect way to 1) offer additional information about the event (e.g. link to event website), 2) provide a video teaser to create some buzz or 3) offer a special registration price to those who scan the code. Whatever the application, it sends a clear message to attendees that your company is an early adopter of technology.

  • Interactivity During the Event: Think about using QR codes during an event as an ice breaker or during breaks. For instance place QR codes on everyone’s chairs and ask trivia questions during breaks. Tell the audience that hints will be attached to the QR codes.
  • Reward Attendees: What if you used QR codes to determine prize winners during your conference? Use codes to simulate a lottery – attaching a winning message on a few codes. Winners who un-lock the winning QR code, could be asked to participate on stage or win a big prize!
