Business People In business, as in the rest of the world, decisions are often made in the first few minutes of contact. Making a good first impression at an event is vital to the success of your business.
- By Neen James

Post signs at the venue to appear when your guests get out of the elevator, walk off the street or enter a large conference facility.

This signage will assist your guests to feel comfortable and know they are in the right place.

Provide pre-printed name tags if appropriate.

Organize name tags with your logo or event name on the name tag as well. TIP: Pay special attention to the correct spelling of people's names as it is very important to get this right. Always keep a supply of blank name tags available for unexpected guests.

Sort the name tags on your registration desk in alphabetical order (by last or first name)

Your guests will help you look for their name tag as well.

Visa's latest security measures hailed as industry's best

Puzzle Credit card companies are now placing a greater emphasis on privacy, and protecting the account information of both their customers and other businesses.

According to 3Delta Systems, a company that is among the best in online credit card payment solutions, Visa's innovative new identity theft protection system is a "global industry best." The process, which involves a process called "tokenization," basically takes consumers' real credit card data and makes it unusable by hackers while keeping it readable for itself.

The company said that Visa's system converts all the information from a customer's purchase - their 16-digit credit card number as well as other information related to the transaction - into a string of characters that hackers cannot decrypt, which renders it useless to them. The tokenization process not only protects consumers and merchants, but also payment processors, and in doing so reduces the amount of risk and the costs associated with complying with data-security laws
