2. Manage Access

Make security’s job easier with wristbands. Ensure no one enters restricted areas such as backstage dressing rooms or vendor-only areas. Wristbands, including Tyvek®, vinyl, and plastic, are non-transferrable and completely customizable. Lanyards can also be used to monitor restricted areas only for badge holders, such as employees or media members.


3. Cashless Payment System

Increase speed of service and enhance the guest experience with RFID wristbands. These can be used as a contactless payment option for event amenities such as snack bars and souvenir shops. RFID wristbands also encourage social media engagement by scanning or tapping RFID readers to instantly share moments that are posted and shared with friends as free promotion for your event.
