Policing Your Events Using Coloured Wristbands
Coloured wristbands can be used effectively at a variety of events to police bars, restricted areas and other locations that should only be accessible by certain groups.
Take a Summer music festival which is accessible to all ages, including people with disabilities and families with young children. As well as paying customers of the festival there will also be hundreds of staff members, artists (and their entourages) and security personnel.
Keeping track of who's who at an event like this can be a logistical headache – under 18s can't enter bar areas, security guards need access to all areas, the general public can't access stage areas. Some people may even have paid extra for VIP entry to the festival, giving them special privelages over regular attendees such as access to lounges and special washrooms.
A simple way to identify and track guests is to issue them with specifically coloured wristbands, denoting who they are and where they are allowed to go. With so many coloured wristbands available, from metallic gold to neon pink, it's easy to assign a certain colour for each group.
- Adults (regular access ticket) = Blue
- Adults (VIP access ticket) = Silver
- Under 18s = Green
- Children = Yellow
- Artists = Gold
- Staff = Orange
- Disabled = Purple
- Security = Pink
Further more, coloured wristbands can even be printed with custom text and logos to give extra information.
The risk of transfer and loss is also greatly reduced by choosing Tyvek coloured wristbands. These wristbands are made from a highly durable material that's waterproof, tear-proof, and can be adjusted to fit nearly any size of wrist.
