How to take advantage of lanyards for events

Planning an event can be a very daunting task, and sometimes it’s hard to even know where to begin. Between local government requirements, promotion and maybe even food vendors to organise, it can really take it out of you.

So, once you’ve completed the planning stage and made it to the day of the event, why continue to make it more difficult for yourself?

Using lanyards in event organisation

Make sure you know exactly where everyone should be, and more importantly, who they are with lanyards. At the end of the day, you don’t want to mix up your staff and event volunteers from your exhibitors.

A great way to do this is to take advantage of pre-printed lanyards – not only can you quickly tell the different between your staff, volunteers and exhibitors, but you can also even add a custom card and wallet to help know exactly where all your exhibitors should be.

Or, maybe you have an even more complicated set up. Maybe you want an easy way to differentiate between the areas of your event – so that you can easily see whether a member of security is supposed to be on the door or in the VIP section.

You can easily change the colour of our pre-printed lanyards, meaning that you can easily pick to have your door security wearing red lanyards while your VIP security wear black lanyards.

Lanyards for extra event income

Apart from helping you to organise your staff and exhibitors, lanyards can also be a great way to provide extra income from events.

Maybe you already publish and sell an event programme, but have you thought about putting it on a lanyard?

The main benefits of event lanyards is that they’re less likely to get lost so less cleaning up for you, they’re smaller and easier for people to carry so more people are likely to buy them, and you can even include advertisement space on the lanyard itself.

Or, even if you decided not to create lanyard programmes, why not still take advantage of sponsored lanyards?

If you’re event has a sponsor, or even a number of sponsors, why not approach them and see whether they would like to sponsor your lanyards? Unlike other traditional advertising space, lanyards get them a lot more exposure – as their branding will be round the neck of every single member of staff during the event.

If you’re interested in buying lanyards especially for your event then why not take a look at our ranges of pre-printed and customisable lanyards?
