Events that may require attendees to wear wristbands include multiple-day events, events held at bars, corporate events and fundraising events. Wristbands are sometimes used at networking events and also work well for school events and field trips.
A wristband is appropriate for a multiple-day event that requires daily proof of admission. Using wristbands alleviates patrons of the need to hold onto tickets from daily use and alleviates staff from the need to scan potentially damaged barcodes from worn or dog-eared tickets.
Similarly, wristbands are helpful identifiers of ticket holders to events held at stadiums and other events held in large venues. Wristbands can also help denote which guests are allowed access to certain areas that include privileged access or amenities.
Wristbands may be used at events held at a bar to denote general or VIP admission. Wristbands can also aid in age identification, making it easier to determine who can drink alcohol. This allows for a faster speed of service, as bartenders are able to determine if a guest is over the age of 21 by simply looking at the wrist.
Using wristbands for student trips creates a way to easily identify groups of children by grade, teacher or bus. This identification creates an easy tool to help groups of students stay together.
