As an event organizer, preventing folks who haven’t paid for admission from entering is essential. One of the most effective and efficient methods for spotting paying attendees vs. gatecrashers is event wristbands.
Event Wristbands for Event Security
The first step toward adequate security and ensuring authenticity at your event is choosing to use Tyvek® wristbands. A strong adhesive ensures that they fit securely to the guest’s wrist and can’t be slipped off. Once in place, your guests cannot remove the wristband and transfer it to another individual. In addition, Tyvek® wristbands are sturdy enough to last the duration of the event.
While Tyvek® Wristbands ensure non-transferability, special security wristbands offer additional features to help keep your event secure.
The sequential numbering on these wristbands helps you keep track of your guests. In addition, you can further reduce the risk of counterfeits by choosing your own number range. As fraudulent wristbands are unlikely to fit in your range, doing so enables easy detection of counterfeit wristbands.
Security wristbands can also feature a hologram, which is extremely difficult to duplicate. Staff can check for this to make sure that certain guests are supposed to be in the venue or not.
Another advantage of Tyvek® wristbands is that they are available in various colors and unique designs. So, even if your only security measure is to designate specific colors for particular guests, it enhances your event’s overall security. Creating a unique design is where the practical importance of security and the fun aspects of creativity meet. Whether you add your logo and overall event’s theme or add text specific to your event, your event wristbands will be harder to duplicate.
In addition to verifying guest authenticity, wristbands enable you to manage the crowd within the venue. For example, if you have any alcohol on the premises, you’ll want to make sure that no underage drinkers get served. Bar wristbands made of Tyvek® make a scenario like this highly unlikely. This is due to the tamperproof design, making it nearly impossible for younger guests to exchange with older ones. Designated drivers can also request special event wristbands that let the bartender know not to serve them.
Added Security is Smart, Simple, and Cost-Effective
When dealing with large crowds, it’s important to keep safety in mind. It pays to take simple steps to ensure your event is secure, and the admission wristbands you choose can make all the difference.
