Let's just get right into this here and look at the facts! 

Attendees love them!

People love when they get that little piece of cloth that shows they were part of something amazing! Fabric Wristbands  are bright and colourful and can be seen from a distance which gets people talking. “Hey, I wonder where they were. What festival is that from?” Fabric wristbands are extremely comfortable to wear which means that attendees don’t have to worry about fidgeting with it and can focus on having more fun.

Durability

You don’t have to worry about a fabric wristband falling apart through the wear and tear of a 3 day festival. They are long lasting and perfect for all types of environments. Music festivals have really taken a shine to fabric bands for this very reason. Because they feature a secure one time closure you don’t have to worry about it falling off your attendee as they get right in the middle of the action.

Brand Exposure

This little fabric wristband isn’t just used to track admissions or even security. This little wristband is a mini billboard worn by thousands who are advertising for you every second they have it on. In many cases attendees wear it long after they have left your event. Remember, they love showing that they were part of something awesome.

Guests are keeping their wristbands long after they take them off as well. Pinning them to memory boards, scrapbooking them, or putting them into memory boxes with other concert, event, or festival memories. By having your brand on a fabric wristband the possibilities for brand marketing are endless.  Because of this one reason festivals, events and venues are opting for fabric wristbands over any other. Guests are more apt to keep a fabric band on twice as long as they would a paper or plastic wristband, meaning more chances of the sponsors, or event name being seen more and because the band is more durable, as previously mentioned, the bands will keep their shape longer while paper bands become wrinkled.

www.efestivals.co.uk had a poll which asked people: Why do you keep your wristband on? Out of the 87 members who cast votes the number 1 reason with 49 votes was “To keep the memory Alive” with a close 32 votes for “conversation starter in pubs and clubs.”

 So, there you have it. The social aspect of the wristbands are still very much alive after the event has ended, this poll also shows us that people are sentimental about their experience, so if you can create the ultimate guest experience at your next event your guest will be sure to not only return but bring along others!
