Event QR codes are the perfect addition to any event for many specific purposes. Invitations with QR codes allow for an unlimited amount of people to share and receive information quickly by mobile phone. QR codes for registration and signups posted in public places like university campuses and in the community, draw in guests by curiosity and convenience. Make your event planning easy to scale with QR codes with RSVP messages. This is ideal for advertising, inviting, giving feedback after the event, marketing, and sharing memorable content between guests.

Benefits of Event QR Codes

1. It expands your audience

Printing a QR code on the back of your catering or florist van helps expand your audience to the guests at venues. Especially sharing QR codes for social media accounts that can show off your work to a wider audience and be shared between users for better customer engagement.

2. It's editable

As event information is constantly changing, dynamic QR codes are extremely useful because you can change any information without reprinting a physical code. Now scanners will see all of the updated information with each new scan.

3. It's decorative

With Supercode's QR code generator software, make a stunning QR code in just minutes that reflects the colors of your wedding, special occasion, or brand, to add to your invitations, business cards, company vehicles, and more. No need to have a plain black and white code anymore.

4. It's trackable

QR code tracking can be done in Supercode's analytics dashboard. See cities feedback has come from, operating systems that have scanned, and track the performance by dates such as days, weeks, months, and all time.

5. It has various uses

Event QR codes can be used by anyone from event managers, to scanning in event tickets, collecting feedback for events, m-commerce shops, advertising, wedding QR codes, invitations with QR codes, and gaining followers on social media. Invent your own uses for event QR codes and make creative connections with guests and others in your industry.

Applications of Event QR Codes

1. Place QR codes on catering and florist vans

What better way to advertise than to have guests at weddings and special occasions and others passing by to see the beautiful flower arrangements you offer, or to try delicious food and keep you in mind for later. Placing a QR code on the side of catering and florist vans is a great way for people to scan when it is stationary and people can see their best work and save the company information on their mobile phones.

2. Add QR code business cards to your campaign

For event organizers, hair stylists, makeup artists, florists, caterers, and venue representatives, make QR code business cards for customers to contact you directly with a vCard QR code that immediately inputs their information into their phones. Also, use a call-to-action to scan image QR codes to celebrate your best work. Link URL QR codes to videos, images, VR experiences, and testimonies so people can get the full experience that they cannot get by business cards alone.

3. Incorporate QR codes into giveaways

Even better than receiving free hats, stickers, and coffee mugs at a trade show or corporate event, is receiving merchandise with a QR code leading to landing pages and social media sites to keep in two-way contact between brands and customers or other people in your industry.

4. Use QR codes at fashion shows

In order to purchase clothes and accessories straight from the runway, place QR codes in fashion show programs for sizing and pricing information straight from your m-commerce store.

5. Use wedding QR codes

Place wedding QR codes on tables for guests to route them to a public photo album where they can post pictures of the wedding online so the bride and groom can have all of the pictures later on. Also, use invitations with QR to route guests to a map of the destinations like the church and the reception. Or even a QR code to m-commerce shops where you are registered for gift purchases.

6. Use QR codes for event tickets

Place QR codes on event tickets for concerts, plays, sports, trade shows, and other community events, so people can register and check-in easily and also as a transparency benefit so staff and customers know they have an authentic ticket vs. a counterfeit.

7. Use event QR codes for check-in and registration

Post event QR codes for automatic check-in at large events to skip the long lines and paperwork.

5. Use QR codes at trade shows

At the Fit Bloggin' Conference in Baltimore, Eggland's Best created this fantastic trade show booth by clearly displaying several QR codes for a selection of reasons: nutritional information, a link to their Facebook, promotion of the organic and cage-free eggs, and an option to sign-up for their newsletter. The trade show targeted bloggers who write about health and fitness so they created QR codes for that specific audience, although they are great for any audience. With a striking and clear presentation, incorporate QR codes for a call-to-action to virtually enhance any trade show booth.
