I love Rachel's tips on the printer and paper! We typically do an assembly line with two iPads and two or three staff, because often the printer/badge area is what will bog you down.
1. Please check in on the iPad, using the first few letters of your first or last name2. Does everything look correct? If not, you can edit it.3. Sign with your signature and submit.

(tears off name badge from printer, inserts in badge holder and hands to attendee)Staff 3
(hands them their educational materials)We also try to keep our event planner free, so that if someone arrives who isn't registered, or if someone came in the place of someone else, she can get that updated on her laptop in real time and then have that person start down the assembly line :).
