WELCOME BAGS & EVENT ESSENTIALS

Welcome bags are a common strategic branding opportunity at events; they are often one of the first opportunities to make a positive impression on your attendees. One thing is for certain: your swag bag’s quality reflects your brand. It's important to choose items that your attendees will actually hold onto and use in everyday life for that increased brand visibility, trust, and loyalty... a warm fuzzy feeling that we like to call Brand Love.

LOOKING FOR A SUBTLY COOL ENSEMBLE? Black has been a go-to neutral for awhile, but heathered grays have been stealing the spotlight recently as an easily wearable neutral. The texture creates an effortlessly modern look, and if paired with luxe leather details, contrast zippers, and pockets, it's a knockout. For bonus points: use black and heathered gray together for a cool and toned down event collection.

LEAVE AN IMPRESSION WITH A ROOM DROP When your attendees are staying at a hotel for your event, room drops can make a memorable and personal touch that will go a long way in making their stay feel like home. It's also an easy way to gift them product without expecting them to carry it around all day. Consider welcoming them to the event with delicious perishables or personal care products that they can enjoy after a long day of meetings. Locally themed drops are a great way to connect the experience of attending the conference to the city or destination. And, of course, luxury travel accesories will always strike a positive chord with your own-of-town visitors. Here are some of our picks!

MINI RETRACTOR

Creating event signage may seem like a basic requirement when hosting a conference, meeting, or networking retreat... but your signage can be far from basic! Improve your attendee experience and increase your event awareness by using clear and concise yet visually interesting signage that will wow your visitors. From registration desk necessities to tabletop displays and fun "furniture" items for designated lounge areas, your next event can create a vibe all its own just by incorporating new and fresh signage and print collateral.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES 1. Think big, bold and bright for a high impact. Catch their attention quickly! 2. Be concise. People are typically walking when reading signs, so it’s important to keep the text concise and easy to read. Try for 5-10 words max. 3. Keep it consistent. Establish a theme to give your event a consistent message. Focus on keeping your event theme consistent across all signage.
