I'd go with this one. (Which explains why I should carry a whack of them but always forget to....)
A riot is an ugly thing.... and I think it's just about time we had one.

All of the translations given already are technically correct, but "providential" has the best translation for speaking to an English-speaking person.  People who speak English call it a "business card", not a "name card".  If you are speaking with someone at the Hi-Tech Fair and want his/her business card you can say:

"Care to exchange business cards?" (To both give and receive the card)

Or, as "providential" has already stated, "May I have your business card?" is good.  Also, if you simply ask "May I have your card?" an English speaker will know that you mean business card.

If you feel awkward to ask for a business card, you can offer yours first: "Here is my card" or "Here is my business card."  By offering yours, the recipient will customarily offer his/hers in return.

I hope I was able to add to what others have already stated.

楼主说 use for HI-TECH FAIR,我猜想“请赐名片”是写在一张卡片上,而不是用在口语中。如果是这样,我的版本为:

We appreciate your name card.

or

Your business card, pls.
