I have mixed feelings about name tags at parties. In some cases, at large events like the Fancy Foods Show, they can be incredibly helpful and stimulate conversation. In more intimate settings, it's easy to casually introduce yourself, so name tags aren't always necessary. Still other times, it depends on the crowd. If it's a shy crew, name tags can be essential to breaking the ice. Then, there's always one person with a crazily spelled name that no one can correctly pronounce. For their sake, I sometimes wish name tags didn't exist. How do you feel about them?
