In past years, controlling admission and keeping track of attendance to events used tickets. Tickets were issued for big to-dos such as carnivals, exhibits, concerts, festivals, and more. However, damaged, torn, and lost tickets were the usual issues along with the long queues.
Today, while some events still use tickets, wristbands for events are seen as the better alternative. The reasons that can convince you to opt with wristbands for your next event include:
Checking individual tickets or passes at entry points of an event is a time-consuming task for security staff and personnel. Opting for wristbands, whether customised or basic, quickly allows participants entry by simply flashing them at the gate. The problem of long queues and frustrated guests is eliminated with wristbands that can be quickly scanned at the gate.
They can be customised
The wide variety of wristbands enables you to choose the colour, style, design, and pattern suitable to the nature of the event. Inter-school sports activities can use uniquely-designed school wristbands. What’s more, customised wristbands can be printed out with the essential information of the event such as its motto, brand, name of the organisation, or logo. Printing choices include debossed or embossed and specific wristband material to use.
They can secure and control the crowd
Wristbands can provide the needed security and control over the crowd of attendees. Opting for wristbands that tighten when worn on the wrist is a good way of ensuring that it’s not passed on from one person to the next. Colour-coding wristbands for general admission and VIP are excellent solutions for separating the attendees. The same colour-coding wristbands can be used to identify the event staff, performers, and vendors as well.
Their size fits all
The durable materials used in wristbands ensure that ruining or losing it during the event is not likely to happen. The size of the bands is not an issue as well as the design of the wristbands allows them to be tightened once worn. Some wristbands fashioned out of silicone pretty much works like rubber bands. This allows people of all sizes to comfortably wear the wristbands throughout the event.
They are easy to use
Stories about lost and damaged tickets have always plagued attendees to big events. Choosing to issue wristbands avoids the issue of lost or damaged tickets. The simple act of removing the wristband from its packaging and slipping it on the wrist is all the action needed by attendees to gain entry to an event.
They function as great mementos of an event
Events such as concerts or sports competitions are attended by loyal fans. Collecting memorabilia is a must for these fans as a way to commemorate the event. Using wristbands during these events provides fans a great reminder of the memorable event. This makes it important for memorable events to choose wristbands that are customised and beautifully designed.
They easily promote your cause or brand
A brand or cause is easily promoted when it’s said with wristbands. Participants required to wearing the wristbands during the event provide free promotion of the brand or cause without even trying.
Opting to use tickets for your next big event is good, but using wristbands is the better alternative. With wristbands, attendance and security control are ensured.
