Kafka Summit is the premier event for developers, architects, data engineers, devops professionals, and anyone else who wants to learn about streaming data. It brings the Apache Kafka community together to share best practices, learn how to build next-generation systems, and discuss the future of streaming technologies.

Angel Business Communications supported the event's organisers, Confluent, by managing the on-site badging and lead retrieval services.

On-Site Event Badging

Angel Business Communications supplied 8 badge printing terminals.

The terminals ran bespoke software which allowed attendees to have a QR code scanned, this prompted the system to instantly print a badge which was then attached to a lanyard and given to the visitor.

There were no issues at all with the printing services and over 1200 badges were printed over the two days.

Lead Retrieval

Angel also provided their bespoke lead retrieval software, allowing sponsors and exhibitors at the event to scan attendee badges and obtain contact information instantly. The app also allowed sponsors to rate their leads from 'Cold' to 'Hot' and leave notes against each record. At the end of each day, the sponsors could download all leads in excel format and pass to their marketing teams for follow-up.


"Confluent have used Angel Business Communications for several years for the main conference registration and Sponsor lead retrieval for our European flagship event. When you have over 1200 attendees from around the world showing up in a 2 hour window it is very important that their experience on arrival and registration is efficient and friendly. This means the onsite badge printing needs to be efficient so the the delegates can be moved through to the coffee area smoothly and without any delays. The service we get from Angel Business communications is flawless, holding our hand at every stage to make sure the first impression delegates and sponsors get is 5*, and the Angel Communications team are on hand through out the Conference to deal with any issues that may arise - they are an extended part of the Confluent marketing team. We look forward to working with them on our future conferences across EMEA."
