You may already be familiar with RFID wristbands, having used them either at a festival, concert or amusement park. This type of technology is becoming very popular with all kind of events and RFID technology takes wristbands to the next level.
RFID stands for radio frequency identification.
Within the wristband, you will find a chip and an antenna which works together to transmit signals and information over radio waves thus making the needs for wallets, identification and tickets unnecessary.
Each bearer of a wristband is given a unique RFID tracking code, which can be linked to an online account. Users can then add payment information, identification details, their ticket number and social media profiles. To be able to do this, be sure to work with your RFID distributor.
What types of RFID wristbands are available?
It will be important to consider which type of wristband best identifies with your brand and event. Amusement parks tend to prefer colourful, waterproof, silicone wristbands to accommodate water rides.
Some common materials for wristbands include fabric, paper, silicone and vinyl. Many of these materials can be combined with LED lights to amplify your brand. Consider also using additional items such as lanyards, cards and tickets to advertise your brand even more.
How are RFID wristbands used at events?
RFID entrance wristbands allow for users to simply scan or tap their wrist onto a reader when entering the event. This eliminates the slow, tiresome process of ticket scanning.
If the payment process is easy and convenient, people tend to spend money more easily and more frequent. Using RFID wristbands can help you to increase profit off catering and merchandise.
