Wristbands for festivals serve as highly-visible, non-transferable “wrist tickets” that are worn by your patrons. Whether you use them for general admission or special access (VIP areas, concerts, vendors, etc.), wristbands allow your staff to see if patrons are where they should be. They are also a proven age identification solution if you're serving alcohol at your mixed-age event.
When you use fair and festival wristbands for age verification, your staff only needs to check patrons' IDs once at the door and apply the non-transferable festival wristband to drinking-age individuals. Your servers can then quickly identify who they can serve without rechecking IDs each time, resulting in quicker alcohol concession lines for increased spending and faster service.
Multi-tab wristbands for festivals can be used as a pre-pay method for food, drinks, rides, or monetary value, helping you control patrons' access or consumption. You can even customize wristbands to fit your branding needs. A common practice for fairs and amusement parks is to use plastic wristbands as passes for "Unlimited Rides" or an "All-Day Pass." Patrons then can purchase the fair wristbands instead of tickets for each ride.
When you customize festival wristbands, they make for excellent branding and advertising opportunities. Festival-goers sometimes keep their bracelets on for long periods of time, turning them into walking billboards for your event. Imprint wristbands with your logo, sponsors' logos, dates, special offers, etc. Many sponsors will even help pay for your wristband program (sponsorship) if you print their logos on the bands. Custom printing your wristbands with your logo also helps prevent counterfeits.
Select styles can also be customized with serial numbers, which help staff track your inventory of wristbands and admissions. They can also be used for special promotion contests and raffles.
