Somebody, a new participant, was standing in front of me at the Participation Registration Counter at a seminar hall without saying who he was and why he came. I wanted to ask himself to introduce him. Could I say...
1.Please introduce yourself?
2.Tell me who you are and why you are here? ( rather rude, I suppose)

    The highest etiquette would be to introduce yourself first.

    "Good afternoon! I'm Dr. Appalayya!" Extend your hand to shake. This should cue him to respond. If not, perhaps add, "What brings you to our seminar?" or some other question to encourage him to talk about himself.
