In today's fast paced world of tradeshows, exhibitions, and conferences, lanyards have become an integral part of the experience. Conference lanyards are a common sight at many conferences because they are useful for holding I.D. badges, security passes, keys, and more. Lanyards are also great for advertising your business or organization, and many tradeshows have specially branded lanyards made specifically for the show.


The first lanyards were a plain rope that soldiers wore around the neck or attached to a uniform to hold a firearm, sword, or whistle. Lanyards were an easy way for soldiers to keep such things accessible while also keeping the items secure. Now, lanyards are not only for the military. Lanyards have all sorts of uses for everyone, from holding small items to advertising their brand.


Many companies have embraced the lanyard as a prime way to attract new customers and create awareness of their brand. Sports teams often make lanyards with the team logo or mascot for fans to wear. A conference or tradeshow might hand out free conference lanyards featuring the logo of the show. Conferences requiring an I.D. badge to enter might give out lanyards to attach the badge to so the badge is not lost. Lanyards are great for many situations!
