#BYOL – Bring Your Own Lanyard!
We’ve decided that as event professionals there is no need to create lanyards for the show – we all have enough hanging around already. So please “Bring Your Own Lanyard”! Pick one from an event you loved, or perhaps one with a story attached. It’s a conversation starter, helps you stand out, and helps keep the event carbon footprint small. #BYOL!
