Deciding what to use at your events is not always a clear cut task. With every event there is a kind of image that you are trying to portray when you are hosting customers or business associates. Then there is the demographic of your attendees. Their age group and social status could very well influence a number of factors in organising. The question is do you go with lanyards or do you prefer slap bands.
There are all sorts of events out there. Some are more formal and some are less. Whether you are having a black tie event or a dance party do still need to identify your attendees. I would say that if you were having a dance party you would be more likely to use slap bands. They are more of a youth orientated item and you wouldn’t want people yanking on each others lanyards whilst they are dancing.
With more sophisticated events such as conferences you would probably be looking at using lanyards. They are more of an adult product and look more formal. Also there is a higher likelihood that the recipient will use them so other purposes in the future.
Which is why when it comes to choosing between lanyards and slap bands for your next event it pays to think about it.
