    What are looking to do? Create your own QR codes for printing?
    Personally, I think that could be a nightmare matching QR codes to attendees, :)

    There are various QR code generators. I found this one.

    You can create QR codes for individuals, and I've experimented with this by putting them on name badges and including the person's contact info embedded in the QR code. But exporting them for printing outside of OnArrival and Cvent Name Badge printing was a pain, so I didn't end up using the QR Codes.

    @Lori Ramos, check out this Using QR Codes article in the Cvent Knowledge base. As @Steven Schlossman mentioned, if we know what you are trying to achieve with the QR codes, we can make better recommendations. ​

    Hi Lori -

    In testing this a bit, if you use the QR Code creator within Cvent, it works pretty well with badges (created and printed out of Cvent) and e-mail communications.  Trying to get them out of Cvent and into other tools is the tricky part.

    Again, without fully knowing what you are trying to do with your badges, if you can use the capability to create the badges within Cvent, that would be the easier route.  For past events, we've also included the QR code in the confirmation e-mails and sent out reminders (with the QR codes) the day before, so people would have them readily available on their phones when checking in (and where we utilized on Arrival to scan them in).
