If you’ve ever been to a large scale function and been forced to wear brightly coloured event wristbands you might not see a lot of point in it. Aside from clashing hideously with your outfit they’re a bit, well…childish right? The reality is that believe it or not, these brightly coloured pieces of plastic are one of the most effective ways of controlling crowds and identifying groups of people at any event. Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages.
Wristbands are a completely flexible way of distinguishing a wide range of people. This could mean those who are under age and therefore not permitted in a bar (if one is on site) or alternatively, those who are of course over legal age. For multi-day events that require re-entry it’s the perfect way of keeping track of those who have paid against those who haven’t. They can also be used to identify special groups of people, say those on school trips to distinguish them from others, and even for VIP guests as a discreet way to distinguish them apart. They also come in a wide range of colours from glorious neons which work well under the nightclub conditions to pastel hues for use in conferences or business events.
They’re easy to fit
When you’re dealing with thousands of people, wristbands are easy to hand out as they’re lightweight and compact. They’re also easy to fit, taking just seconds to snap on. Most are around 25cms long and are designed to fit on most wrists. Adjusting them is also a breeze and they’re comfortable to wear.
Most modern day event wristbands are made from a lightweight, high-grade vinyl, so they’re completely waterproof. They won’t tear or stretch and in fact are pretty much indestructible. Therefore they’re ideal for events where there are masses of people.
They’re cost effective
In terms of cost, wristbands can be manufactured very cheaply and as a result can be purchased for not a lot of money (which is a bonus when you’re purchasing them in the thousands). When it comes to advertising too, they can also be customised with contact details, logos and website. In fact there isn’t really a more cost effective way of spreading the word.
