Planning an event need not be stressful. With enough time and planning as well as the right suppliers, your event should run smoothly. One of the most important aspects of your event will be security and therefore access control event wristbands. So how do you choose the right event wristband?
1. Do your research
If you are organising an event for the first time, it’s wise to ask other experience event organisers which wristbands they use for events and why. Researching which event wristbands will offer the most effective access control will go a long way in making sure that your event isn’t ruined by unwanted guests. Have a read through our Event Wristband Buying guide to help you choose the right type of event wristband. Whether it’s a long or short event, whether you need to brand it or whether you need it to last through wet weather, all the information and guidance you need is in our event wristband buying guide.
2. Choose a Supplier
Once you have decided on the type of event wristband that will suit your event, it’s time to find the correct supplier. Have a read through our Questions to ask your event wristband supplier article for more in-depth information. Many wristband suppliers allow you to design your own event wristband using their online event wristband designer. This is a very useful tool to use in order to save on time. Event wristband suppliers have a huge amount of knowledge on which type of event wristband you should choose so don’t be shy to ask questions.
Ultimately you will need to balance quality with budget. If you only have a minimal budget to spend on access control event products then it’s probably wise to stick to a simple Tyvek, one colour, event wristband. If however you have a larger budget you can decide on a number of different options including vinyl, fabric or silicone event wristbands.
4. Post event evaluation
Once your event is finished it’s important to assess how effective your product was in controlling access to your event. Were the wristbands duplicated? Were they tampered with? Were people that didn’t buy tickets able to access the event and why? By looking at all of these factors you will learn which type of event wristband will be the most effective when you next organise an event.
