Add a venue map to the inside of the conference badge.
Why the inside? Because the badge should have the attendee’s name on both sides, in case it flips over.
Adding a summary of the schedule to the badge (essentially turning the badge in to a little booklet) is a good idea too.
dConstruct in Brighton is a good example of an event with a well designed booklet badge—though as it is single track there’s no need for a venue map.
(For a UX conference though if suggest that doing a really good job with the signs would be more appropriate than inventing a new, stylish but potentially less usable alternative to them).
