Eventbrite has an API to list the attendees of an event [1] I guess writing a simple app that generates a pdf should be quite straightforward the layout of the name tags are simple enough.
That way we could possibly even skip the QR code for those attendees that has opted out from being contacted at registration, the answers to the questions are a part of the payload returned by the API. If I've understood the docs correctly the "barcode" image could also be made available in that payload.
