TRADE FAIR NAME BADGES
New name badges are being introduced in 2021 for Reed, Life inStyle and AGHA Fairs
For Reed, AGHA and Life inStyle fairs in 2022, new name badges are being introduced.
Retailers will no longer be able to use the same name badge to enter Reed and AGHA Fairs.
Changes to the name badges also mean changes to the way you scan the name badges for new customers.
Laptops running Windows XP must be upgraded if you wish to scan the new name badges
Due to the changes to the name badges, laptops at the fair now need to be connected to the Internet. This means that laptops running Windows XP need to be upgraded to Windows 7.
FairScan can do this upgrade for you free of charge (new Windows licence may be required).
Please note that if your laptop is already running Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or Windows 11, then you can ignore this page as your laptop does not need updating.
