After more than a year of uncertainties in the events industry, one thing is for sure: in-person events are evolving, and event planners are aiming to make the entirety of the event experience as seamless, connected, and data-driven as their virtual events.  

One aspect, in particular, that has often involved disparate hardware, software, and processes is the attendee check-in experience.   

As event professionals aim to create efficient, safe, and fully branded check-in processes, they want to avoid clunky badge printing and scanning hardware, unreliable internet, and slow check-in experiences.

Top-notch onsite event management is essential to in-person and hybrid event success. As the new in-person event landscape continues to take shape, there’s a clear need for tools that wow attendees and eliminate onsite headaches for event organizers. 

Socio is excited to announce the newest addition to our end-to-end event management suite for in-person, virtual, and hybrid events, Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing, an all-in-one solution that equips event organizers with everything they need to power safe, seamless, and engaging onsite event check-in experiences. Event professionals can ditch multiple vendors for software and hardware needs and enjoy a single packaged solution for in-person and hybrid event tech, hardware, and onsite support needs. 

Launch Seamless Event Check-In

The event check-in experience is the first touchpoint for attendees at an in-person event. If you stick the landing at check-in, you’re sure to start off on the right foot with attendees. Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing makes this possible with intuitive event check-in and badge printing that’s fully customizable.

At Socio, we design our solutions to be simple, yet highly flexible and this time is no different. Event organizers can build their end-to-end check-in experience with ease, based on what works best for each event. 

You can decide how involved you want to be in the check-in process by selecting between an on-demand kiosk or distributed check-in (for when staff checks in attendees), using the latest hardware–– your own or rented from Socio. 

Integrate Attendee Registration Data

Want a seamless integration between registration and badge printing? Our solution works seamlessly with Socio Registration. If you opt to use a third-party registration platform, no worries! You can easily upload a list of attendee data directly into Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing. 

Once the check-in process starts, planners can choose to give attendees the chance to verify the accuracy of their information before printing, reducing costs from unnecessary reprints. 

For example, if your attendee registration includes a question about food allergies, you can allow attendees to update their answer in real-time as they’re checking in. Is their name misspelled? They can edit before printing.

Save Time with Fast Track

Say goodbye to long check-in lines by enabling the Fast Track feature. Once attendees check-in by scanning their QR code or searching by their attendee information, the Fast Track feature takes them directly to the confirmation page and off to pick up their printed badge! 

Brand and Customize Your Way

Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing enables event organizers to fully customize the attendee check-in process. Think of it as an extension of your brand. Incorporate your brand colors, logos, and verbiage into every aspect of the event check-in experience.

Contactless Check-In

In some ways, the event industry will never return to the old way of doing things. This includes check-in processes! Check-In and Badge Printing enables you to make your check-in process completely contactless, so you can prioritize safety in every aspect of your event. 

Customize and Print Your Event Badges

Event badges are an extension of an event’s brand experience and serve as a source of truth for attendee information. Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing enables you to create beautifully branded badges that also include essential attendee information. 

Tie Badges to Ticket Types

Badge printing has never been easier or more customizable. Socio’s badge printing capabilities unlock the power of a personalized attendee experience. 

You can assign all attendees the same badge or customize based on ticket types. For example, with easy-to-use conditional rules (no coding necessary!) you can designate sponsors and exhibitor badges with customized badge designs and icons that allow them to access specific areas of your event space. 

Create Customized Badge Layouts

Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing is easy to configure, simple to use, and highly flexible. To create event badges, simply drag-and-drop to create the badge layout you want. 

Incorporate your logo, customize where text is located on the badge, and add graphic design elements to really make your badges pop! 

Rent Onsite Event Hardware, Minus the Hassle

When we say an end-to-end event check-in experience, we mean it. Event organizers can rent all of the latest event check-in and badge printing hardware directly from Socio. We’ll provide you with everything you need including iPads, iPad stands, printers, routers, and your printing supplies.

Once you let us know how many attendees will be at your event, we’ll ship you everything you need to bring your check-in kiosk and printing station to life.

We’re here to help you build your dream event that’s tailored to your exact needs. Our Socio Onsite technology can be used with iPads and badge printers rented from us, or your own hardware. 

Lean on Professional Services and Support

With Socio Onsite Check-In and Badge Printing, you can choose to manage the entire check-in process on your own, but if you’re interested in additional help we’re here for you every step of the way.
