When you are starting an exclusive event for a lot of people like a seminar or a conference, it’s best to get custom lanyards that people can wear so you can easily identify who are participating in the event. This gives a very professional and fun atmosphere while giving you a way to identify everyone who goes in. A way to group people in a large enough event is very hard if you do not have this method.
Seminars that are done in hotels or function rooms can get big very easily so there will be logistical challenges that will come with them that is solved by getting customised lanyards. The first issue is a way of grouping people. In a large hotel or convention, not all people will know where the event happens.
People will get lost, go around and look for the designated areas and without a way for them to identify the correct location, you are bound to get problems and people scattered all over the place. With this identifiable strap, you can help in this way for people to find you. All they need to do is ask the people wearing them where the event is or just follow them.
Another good reason to get these ID straps is for exclusivity. A lot of events like Comic Con, business seminars and even your average medical convention gives away identification straps to give the participants the feeling of belonging to the group. If people feel like they are with like-minded people, they are more likely to participate in discussions during a seminar or a convention. They will feel that they are in an event worth their time and effort and will most likely keep the cord as a fond souvenir if they had a good time.
Custom lanyards during events might be the simplest giveaways you can give but the psychological effect of belonging to a group of people through a uniform ID strap helps with people’s social belongingness. It not only helps them identify the locale for easier logistics for the organisers but it gives them a better herd mentality. It’s a small thing to do but the silent psychology behind it is sound. Identify your crowd and have an easier life knowing that you have these many people in your event while you get to keep a souvenir from it.
